There's a little bit of commentary, but if you can't hear the first 4 forehands from the rear view are terrible (first ones of the day). The first lhbh is also bad; I'm still having trouble figuring out what line I'm going to release on.

Will the hershiser drill help with my hips sliding left? And could you expound on that a bit? I'm not exactly sure where "left" is.

Clarifying that I was talking about in a perpetual motion drill like in that vid toward the end where he's talking about the washing machine with all the weight on one side. Not sure I'd say you should be reversing the upper body, you shouldn't have to if you stay more centered and balanced between your feet dynamically. There should be a little twirl in your weight/spine shift from the ground so your weight/spine torques in the arm/disc plane. Everything should have an equal and opposite. The left side of the upper body should be countering the action of the right side. In the backswing the right arm/disc moving away from the target is a counter balance to the right leg moving forward to the plant, and also the left shoulder blade moving targetward. Your dynamic balance/center of the spine during the x-step doesn't have to change if you do that, or change much.

Yes, because it teaches you to leverage/clear your rear hip targetward into the plant. I assume you are referring to earlier post about hips sliding left, in which left is referring to the left side of the tee.

Keep your throwing shoulder low FH and chase the throwing line with the front of your throwing shoulder over your front foot, and your palm and arm should chase the line as well. Your elbow is leading your shoulder the entire throw, so the shoulder/body isn't doing much. Let your elbow get back to parallel with the shoulders and let the body start the lower arm/disc whip.

Your footwork is much better LHBH (and RHFH), but you majorly hug yourself and get no arm extension or reachback. Need to turn those hips and shoulder way back at the plant. You get your throwing shoulder and spine to post better against the front leg which is part of what your RHBH lacks.

Couldn't see much in the 2nd vid. Your hips don't slide/sway as much in what you changed which is better. You still don't have much sequencing/spearation of the body turn hips vs shoulders and releasing the arm. Your LHBH reachback width is now better than your RHBH, but you don't get your hips/shoulders turned back very far LH or RH. RHFH looked decent.

Watch the sequencing and positioning of everything, the hip starts the backswing and the upper body turning back and the arm just follows back, look at how far he turns his shoulders while the arm is straight in line to the target and front foot more backwards with the heel up. Then hips initiate the forward swing as the upper body turns, then the arm whips. Notice his shoulders are almost parallel when he whips the arm. Your shoulders are open.

Am I hugging myself rhbh?

Should it feel like I'm pushing my right hip to the target (rhbh)? That's a feeling that's improved my putting a lot this week.

It was real late when I started filming. Had to help a dude fix a flat tire. I was hoping my camera was good enough it wouldn't matter.

What am I looking for in the hershiser drill? AKA, how will I know if I'm doing it wrong? Should I just film it?
