Your standstill shows you pushing the rear side too early before the front heel has planted, and you aren't keeping your weight on the inside part of the foot/leg for proper weight transfer and pivot.
A Is this causing nose up issues? I frequently throw my hyzer-flips nose up.

B Am I spending too much time on my feet? I feel like when I do a silly long/fast run-up, my last 2 or 3 steps feel much lighter and quicker, and I feel like I shift my weight a lot better.

I'm trying to find some time to get another video up. It's tough sometimes.

A. Most likely.
B. By being quicker you will naturally have better balance. There's a tradeoff of leverage and acceleration by being quicker though. If you can maintain good balance through being slower(building leverage) and adding late acceleration, that would be ideal.

Who's Bart?


I don't think I understand the tradeoff idea. If I'm understanding, top pros should have a walking run-up; whereas most have a jogging speed run-up.

But is a jog not a compromise between standing still and full sprint? First young grasshopper should learn to stand efficiently before jogging.

So, top pros are building leverage and adding late acceleration while moving quickly?

From your first post, I wasn't sure that you weren't proposing a run-up that was as slow as attainable while maintaining balance.

But now, I think you're proposing going as fast as possible, while still managing to build leverage and accelerate late?

Yes, but there's a point of diminishing returns and even reversing returns from forward momentum dependent on each individual.

Yes.

Yes eventually, but you are not ready, you must learn to be efficient standing, walking, then maybe jogging. The most efficient top throwers don't really go much beyond a brisk walking speed. It's the last two steps that counts the most. Watch Steve Brinster, Tyler Horne, and Ken Jarvis.

I've been trying a lot of things trying to figure out how to brace my right side. Recently, I think I may have had a breakthrough; looking for confirmation or denial. When I release the disc now, it feel more like I'm standing on my right leg, whereas before I was standing more between my legs. Hopefully that makes sense.

I'm trying to find a day to get some film. Hopefully it'll happen soon.

Thanks guys!

On your thumbers, notice all that wobble in the disc? You are losing a lot of potential distance because of that. I believe the cause of it is the directional force your applying to the disc. You release the disc at maybe 10 degrees off of vertical, which is fine, but the angle of force you are applying to it seems about 45-60 degrees off vertical, if not more. This causes you to push the disc off axis and creates the wobble. The reason I can tell this is because your follow through ends up above your left shoulder, whereas it should be ending down by your left hip. Your follow through should be on a straight line with the angle you are releasing the disc.
