alrighty, round 2, lets see what you can do 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.
Much nicer, you got rid of the ducking step. You still hyper-extend the follow through, which would not be that bad, but it can inflame your shoulder issues.
Pull is slightly low and you can bring your weight forward more.

Well, I am no expert but I will say it does not look like you are going to hurt yourself with this drive. All in all, solid improvement. There are probably things you need to work on, there always is but good job man.

Thanks for that! And I know you took an incredible amount of time trying to explain it to me last time, but I still might be a little confused. How do i prevent it? Do I turn my body faster so my arm can't hyperextend that far? Or what?

Red line is your front foot, blue line is the center of your body.

It appears you are turning your torso more in the followthrough which is taking a lot of the stress off your shoulder.

Seriously, HUGE improvement. I had to watch it in slo-mo a few times to see anything.

SO does my body need to be over my foot at the hit?

This video showed me so many flaws in my own timing and weight transfer (that I still have yet to fix)

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.

Here are some pictures of Avery with his weight over his foot.
