Do your worst. Critique my form.

I am so all over the place and inconsistent. Been playing for four years now. I used to throw FH for my main drive, but I made it a point to move to mainly BH this year. Sometimes I crush the disc, and then others I flip it out early, and then others I hang on to and turn over.
Gimme!

You're not bracing and throwing against your right side, instead you are throwing over it. Really everything comes down to timing it just right at that point. Focus on that right heel area, get the weight on the heel.

But can you explain the first sentence like I am five please?
Thanks!

Your are rolling your weight over your front leg. Instead of bracing on your front leg and driving your weight into it. In other words your front leg should stop your entire forward momentum therefore transferring into the disc if done correctly.

Yeah, Your weight is shifting over your right foot as you throw and you dont end up using the chain reaction (whip) properly. Look at where you finish with the left foot in front of the teepad. You are wasting energy. Practice standstills, focus from the ground up with the right side pulling, legs and hips first as weight shifts pulls the upper body into position and the arm whips through last. Pivoting around your right heel and finishing with your left leg perpendicular to the target line.

Just remember the power comes from the ground and your hips and legs are the most powerful muscles in your body.


Edit:The other response works too by Josh!
