Critiques for my form (Please Help!)

I need all the tips and suggestions I can get to help my driving form. I have been working on trying not to "Duck or Squat" down through my technique, but it's gonna be hard to break. Anything else would be great!! Thanks so much!

First thing that jumps out at me is your timing is off. You make your x-step, pause, then initiate your throw. Just after right foot plants and starts to pivot, your hips need to follow, then core, then shoulders and arms..etc. These other guys will have a lot more to add in detail I'm sure.

You definitely need to work on fixing the "squat". Fixing bad habits is always hard, but it'll pay off if you spend the time breaking them. Other than that, I'm not very good at picking apart someones form. SW22 should be on this in a few minutes to help you out.

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.

The squat kills all momentum. There are a lot of basics to fix, but first work on that....
I see you already noticed that.

your form is like a girl with a huge wart on her face, until the wart is removed, that is all we will notice.
When you fix the squat it will be easier to fix the lesser issues.

Your pull is low, down at your stomach

Thanks, that makes a lot of sense.

You seem to stop your follow through with both your hips and arm. In my experience this will lead to both injury and a more strained throwing motion.

This, also the OP already has a bad shoulder, so this is going to make it worse.

So I should try and follow through more? Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, but will following through more help injuries and etc.?

not more, smoother.

When you stop your momentum you compensate by adding a short burst of power into your arms. If you shorten your follow through too much will make it worse, but you are all ready following through all the way to your back hyper extending your shoulder.

look at the kid in my sig, his arm comes back,. but does not actually touch his back.
