From what I've read and tried to do, when you keep your elbow closer to your body, timing becomes easier, and distance is diminished.



SW; have you try reaching back a little higher?

Higher typically results in nose up or worm burn.

I think you can shift your weight to your right plant foot more on your Backhand.

I'm not qualified to comment on your form. I am, however, qualified to comment on your choice of music ... excellent! Instead of reaching for the mute button, I turned it up.

I assume you modeled your backhand somewhat off Feldberg? If you want more power I see 2 things that could help. You seem to be able to repeat the form consistently which really is the biggest goal anyways and the main reason why Feldberg's form is one of the best to learn from.

The footwork is fine. You mainly just need to be more explosive at the end. Your weight transfer is there and fine, but I might suggest setting your body a bit more over your disc. This will help you get bigger hyzer flips and more distance.

I am sure you have seen this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7nwnrYHFHI

See how Feldberg is more over his disc? Then again this is really only if you want to throw with more hyzer torque. It can create more leverage with the shoulders as long as you keep the shoulders moving forward.

The other thing is working on extending through the Beto/BlakeT/DGR "power arc" as the disc rips out. I don't think the end of your throw is as powerful as it could be. If you want some advice on drills I use for this with my clients just PM me and I can try to help.
