If it is the actual serratus anterior musclulature which is sore, then that can be attributed to the protraction of you scapula which is evident throughout the entire movement and not just when you extend your arms forward.

Nothing wrong with this. Next time, try to keep your scapula fixed (retracted) while extending your arms. Or you can use the same form you display in the video.

Personally, I dont think it matters either way performance wise.
