One concept that I'm struggling with is that Shawn Clement talks a lot about bracing against the lead knee, and keeping the weight there most of the time. But the other guy focuses on centering the pivot on that specific point in the rear foot. Those two concepts are difficult for me to resolve. (although trying to do both has resulted in some of my best throws, just not consistently)
When I finally started getting big distance on my drives, I was throwing almost all of my weight onto my front leg while still maintaining balance. It is just something that takes time to be able to do consistently.
