What I'm talking about is the elbow has to stop going forward and start moving rotationally to your right (assuming rhbh). When it starts moving rotationally, it swings your lower arm. That swinging of the lower arm is the whip-like action you're looking for.
My biggest problem with the hammer pound drills was trying to make them more complicated than they are. Just put a nail in a board, and try to drive it with a disc with your throwing grip. It's that easy.
dan that is the resultant of elbow chop. as long as you elbow chop, the lowerarm will whip around and your upper arm will continue with around with your follow through. wake details the follow through in his post.
