Critic this is back
 
I admit, I don't have the best form and still fight with rounding, bracing, and my hips moving correctly. My anaylsis on this drive: front leg is doing the stupid open and bent thing, my rear leg is getting forced behind my brace it's not occurring naturally. Balance on heels and not getting enough hershyser or wlbow forward. I do think my x-step has improved.

Feel free to roast me

Also My rear leg is way too straight and i am over striding by almost a foot

You're not shifting into the brace, I have problems with this too. You still have weight on your left foot as your right foot is planted. Slow down the pace a little and delay the reachback. You need to shift as you're transferring onto the right foot, while still at maximum reachback.

You have made a good bit of progress, and yeah rounding a bit/leaning a little instead of turning further(door frame drills and really turn your shoulders/shift hips/weight forward so your arm is wide almost 180 degrees/inline to shoulders - make sure your stance is well enough inside the door frame, so your arm reach to the door frame is not rounded behind your body). Turn your head further back and shift more upright/stacked from behind you(best downswing weightshift and crush the can/s), should help your stride and balance and load more into the rear leg to explode from it. You are turning your head before your weight shifts forward/braces, so your swing is early. I keep my eyes on my disc/thumb from reachback to release, I want to see the line/arc I'm swinging the disc back and forward on. And get your rear arm in! Put your hand in your pocket or on your thigh like Marc Jarvis.

Please elaborate:

And it's good to hear about that progress

Make sure your shoulder socket is inline to the door frame or slightly inside the door frame, so your shoulder/arm is straight inline to the target(assuming we are throwing a straight shot).

And it would be safe to compress best downswing weight shift into the phrase "weightshift comes from behind you"?

I can feel the weight shifting this way, using my arm weight and turning the shoulders back

The crush the can drill has helped with rounding immensely. I am also getting a straighter reachback and cleaner hit and follow through. Im still leaving my weight on the rear portion.

I'm using my blizzard boss for these practice swings because it provides a good amount of weight and grip

Looking good!

Just need to make the same thing happen with an x-step... slow motion moving, here I come!
