looks like that big forward step with the right leg before your x-step is hurting you. seems that it forces your body to face the target a bit too long because of the big forward movement. you should basically feel like your back is facing the target as you start the pull. without that first step, you will be able to get in that position better. since you don't get that full turn, your follow through is not as long after the release, either. at least this is what i'm seeing.

One thing I notice is your left arm (~ 10 sec mark) moves in sync with your right arm. There's usually a pause where the left arm is kept at the side at the beginning of the pull... just an observation for you to experiment with if you want. Could be many causes, eg, lack of acceleration, lack of flexibility, bad timing.
cool...i will work on keeping it at my side

Yes, your upper arm(bicep) is too close the chest during the throw, so there's not much extension. Do you know how to do a chicken wing with your arm, where your hand is near your arm pit with the elbow straight out from the shoulder? That's more what you want, more width of the arm/bicep from the chest. You will have to change your stance and aim more backward.

yes. try to work on shortening it up a bit. that way the x-step essentially comes earlier and your pullback is more in sync with it. you should get more rotation of the body that way as well. should make you a bit more fluid throughout the run up and throw.

thanks everyone. I appreciate the tips.

Sidewinder, i have to admit...most people i've spoken to have said to keep the arm close to the body. I will certainly go to the field and give it a shot though

You want to bring/swing the disc in close to the chest, not the arm.
