Absolutely no one throws far when they first start throwing. The difference is that some people have the ability to think straight and try and learn regular good form. They will be throwing further as they improve their form. Your philosophy breaks the standard laws of form.

Think about running. You push forward with your leg to land forward with your other leg and push with that leg to land on the other etc... Everytime you land on either leg, the hips swivel to the direction of which leg you land on. You can try slowmotion running.

Now try to rotate to that direction BEFORE the leg has landed on it. Not a lot of power/speed coming out of that now huh?

Sidewinder sure decided to throw a jab out there. I can jab back. It's childish but I can lower to others level too.

Throwing LHBH is super easy and the discs fly really easy.

Then let's see that 450' throw.

Well, it clearly looks like two new guys learning how to throw. The guy on top is better than the guy on the bottom, he mostly just needs to get quicker muscle firings. The guy on the bottom just needs to watch some pros throwing for a while and start over.

You didn't notice the major flaw in their lower body? They're planting toes first and already opened up their hips.

Nothing substantive here. I thought you had a refined understanding of how to throw?

It doesn't happen overnight. Let me ask- what's the average timeframe for a person to get to 450 feet? Several years I'm betting at least, if they even get there, right?

Yeah I noticed. Not a big deal with the top guy, just a few tweaks here and there. Players generally figure out most things on their own from trial and error. The guy on the bottom has so much wrong going on I don't know where to begin other than he needs to just start over.

Looks most like his muscles became better conditioned to fire quicker through lots of dedication and hard work. He has his own unique signature on his throw just like everyone else. Is his the most efficient? Who knows? Question I ask is- it seems like it took him a long time to get to 500 feet. Maybe that's just how it is. Could he have gotten there without those drills helping him? Maybe so. Maybe he could of got there sooner with different drills. Who knows?
