It is more of a mental push, followed they uncoil of the elbow, arm and disc. You are changing the mental aspect of pulling in to the idea of pushing forward. Physically trying to push and pull things usually doesn't work
Good stuff. After watching Will's video (especially the parts about shoulder turn and weight transfer) I finally broke the 375' mark yesterday in a tailwind on a nice low line. I also get a pretty loud snapping sound with my drives, which brings me to this whole pull-push thing.

I know that the snapping sound isn't always a bad thing. But I'm fairly sure in this case the snapping comes from the disc slipping from my hand too early. Which is mainly caused by the pulling motion and me not getting my elbow front far enough and accelerating through the hit.

Any tips on how to practise the uncoiling thing? I've tried Beato's drills without much luck.

What kind of distances are the guys with bigger arms getting from a standstill?

I by no means have a huge arm, but with the run up i can hit about 410-420 on my better throws.
Today I was practicing the standstill as will was showing it in the video and got my mids out to about 300 on the better throws, and my drivers to about 340.

How far are you guys chucking it from a standstill, and what distance might someone of wills caliber be throwing from a standstill?

I'm sure Will can hit 400 without a sweat with a fairway driver, but Will is especially good at stand still drive.

I was just wondering if there were any specific drills for dialing in weight transfer. I am working on it, and was interested to see if there are more efficient ways of doing this. All this practice has helped some with my "opening up" too early issues, so for that I am grateful. I would just like to really be efficient with my throw, especially from a stand still. I will work on the footwork after this is cleaned up a bit.
