Nose up
 
What are some fixes for potential nose up problems? Such as pressure w the thumb or exaggerating the nose of the disc down during the reach back.

Shifting your weight past your front foot.

Try to throw at the ground. Seriously.

could be your reach-back is going from waist high to shoulder high, not straight through on a line. More pressure on the top of the flight plate with your thumb also can help if you are loosey goosey with it.

Keep your wrist down like your reaching out to shake someone's hand.

The waist high to chest high plane makes sense I'll have to check that out. I actually put ton of pressure on the flight plate w my thumb to the point where I think it's too excessive most of the time

adjust your thumb location. One cause of nose up shots is putting your thumb near the outer edge of the disc. If you move it closer towards the middle it will make you throw a flat or turnover shot instead of the nose up hyzer. Experiment with this until you are comfortable.

I wouldve guessed the opposite. Interesting.

Also, what Zenbot and AFTC said

I appreciate all the quick replies. My thumb placement when throwing a driver is right where the rim ends (about an inch or so in). To close to the outer edge?
