Weight shift?

Ok, I understand that a video is the way to go I just don't have anything other than a cellphone and I don't know how to upload those sort of things. Anywho my question is or maybe more of a statement, I don't feel like I'm getting my weight transferred onto my plant foot. For whatever reason I feel like I'm throwing from my back leg. I'm not skying discs out or anything like that. It's just as of late I haven't been getting full rips like I used to. Not sure what changed but if you guys can help it would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Try throwing from your lead leg only (back leg off the ground).

Got u I was thinking u meant trying to throw from my front foot at the end of my x-step. If I am indeed picking up what ur putting down ur saying just stand there on my plant foot and throw. I will try this and see what it does for me. Maybe I can get the feel for my weight being forward again.

I would work on standing still and stepping into your shot. That's how I taught my kids and they got it almost immediately

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.

Will does an awesome job explaining weight shift here. The stand still approach really helped me. I still practice pretty much all my field work from the stand still approach.
