I will say that you're looking WAY better than before.

Your non-throwing arm can do more to help you. Watch how specifically paul, pulls it back through the core to add something to the un-corking of his reach-back.

I could be wrong, but I see in that first video - you were sorta "feeling out" how to get that momentum without the arm? I was doing that alot while I was learning that bracing against the plant foot in the last few weeks.

Just stand somewhere without a disc - working on transferring all your weight from back to front, back to front without losing your balance. Bracing hard against that front leg is the key, and keeping your plant foot 90 degrees from your throwing line (you're still a bit open).

I've tried using my off arm to add some momentum; no success with that so far. It always throws my upper body into an extreme hyzer position.

LHBH and RHFH, I don't really have to think about my lower body (it's the same as baseball and golf). I was feeling out getting my elbow forward and finding the start of the pull (trying to figure out when the disc should be at max reachback, compared to the lower body).

My bracing problems are on the other side. RHBH and LHFH.

I've been working to close myself off more too. I think it will strengthen my hit if I can close 10* or so.

Hyzer should be coming from leaning forward at the waist, so not exactly sure why that arm would be pulling you over. Could be that you were moving the disc to avoid hitting that arm?

Maybe just try getting your non-throwing hand over your back thigh as you're driving that elbow now that you're getting a wider reach.

(2 min in for a good view) It's a good thing to get this fixed early, it only gets harder to fix down the line.

Yeah, I didn't notice how far my right arm was away from my body at release. I can't get youtube to work, but I'm pretty sure I know what you're talking about. It's also possible that I'm doing that intentionally, although subconsciously, to keep my rotation slow to match my arm speed.

I think maybe, in the past, that arm has dropped my rear shoulder to make the hyzer position.

LHBH, you plant open and have almost zero shoulder turn. The off arm needs to move your weight into a braced front side to initiate the swing. You start turning the shoulder before your weight is more forward.

RHFH, you have very little reachback.

Spinning out both feet. You have this screwing motion with the front foot as it plants, it should stride forward like Griffey below and keep your front knee behind the foot. You need to resist the front leg/foot turning to hit against it.

Your rear heel spins backward as it's first move, instead of leading the toes forward like Greg Norman. You will also notice Griffey's rear heel doesn't spin backward, it's moving forward during the swing. You also look a bit too upright, should have some more squatting in there to really generate power like in the using ground correctly vid a few posts ago.

Vacationed for the weekend, so I haven't been doing much. My intention is to close my rear foot (toes pointed more target-ward). Does that sound right?

I putted for the first time in a couple of weeks. I'll have to completely rework my putting stroke to be braced. But that's what I should do, right? (Not a big deal. I suck at putting, and completely reworked it a couple of weeks ago.)

I'm sure I'd be more athletically positioned less upright, but I adopted an extreme upright position to allow myself to break. So that will be a long-lasting work in progress. I definitely feel the squat and explode, though. It's one of the things that trying to feel it helps me brace. The other thing is starting my hips earlier.


Should I actively try to reach back further on LHBH and RHFH? Thinking about it, it seems like that will come naturally with repetition and increasing effort/distance.

Sounds like a plan. I'm not sure what you are talking about in the 3rd part. I'd say your FH is maxed unless you reachback further, or throw harder. LHBH is definitely needing to turn further back or staying back with the shoulder/disc longer.
