How do I tweak cmotion walk cycle with body sway?

I've created a walk cycle for my spider(using insect rig preset in cmotion) and tweaked things like phase, stride length etc.. but it still looks very mechanical because the thorax and abdomen are not moving. I see some adjustments for the thorax like phase and horizontal but I want it to wiggle with each step(without having to keyframe every step).
I would like the thorax and abdomen to move some as she walks but when I change the settings for these it is a constant change, not with the steps..
How can I get the main parts of the body to wiggle with each step?

I've found the add actions under the object menu and added a "twist". After some tweaking this is what I wanted.. pardon the newbie question.. lots to learn here!
