Wheelchairs begin rotating at the exact beginning of mobility. I think its possible that this anecdote is going to be wildly misinterpreted in this particular thread.

Apparently, and bafflingly to the absolute limit of absurdity, people do fall into the category of obstinance that you describe.

Uh oh. Is your next thread going to explain how a 10mph headwind decreases distance?

Nope. His plant leg clearly extends and powers his throw out of the power pocket. You are looking for things that reaffirm your bias, not actually trying to understand what people are discussing in...

The complete incorrect paradigm that you are operating from is becoming viscerally understood to me. I really recommend opening your mind to this possibility.

You are seriously misjudging how small of a movement is actually required to get a lateral shift in mass powering the arm as a slingshot type feeling.

It takes a fair bit of balance, but I actually can generate the feeling of a lateral shift while standing on one leg. If I am allowed to hop on the plant leg, I can generate considerable momentum,...

I agree with this, but feel like intending to rotate will limit you in a way that is far from subtle. It cuts off the path to systematically adding more power to brace against. The difference,...

So, you still fundamentally disagree that the one-leg drill, as explained through this thread, is irrelevant to feeling the actual engine of the throw?

I guess we will have to just leave it at...

Out of curiosity and to segue back to the initial topic here, how far do you throw a putter with the one-leg drill now? If you ended up doing this drill again and are having good results with the...

I just don't understand where you think this concept is going to take you. When you feel the lateral momentum transfer into a brace, even at the low effort/speed levels that I am limiting myself to,...

This mental model of the action is just going to be limited, because it is still backwards. If you think about what you are saying -- that rotation is the primary engine -- how can you 'stop' that...

I completely agree and this is part of what baffles me. If I do pick up a literal spear I would do that instinctively. What is it about a disc that made me have to claw my way out of strong-arming...

If this were the case, you would see a constant rotation of the foot in well performed drives. This is subtle and honestly very hard to see without looking specifically at it but try it. Watch,...

I will come back to this after I spend some real time in the field. Today, the most major thing internally that changed was how the overall rhythm is 'counted' in my head. Without the brace and...

That is a way to throw a disc fairly far, I don't deny that. Again I am a layman, but did take this out to the field today to apply it to throwing discs. There is a big difference in how it feels,...

If you 'crush the can' during your lateral running, you don't feel it drive your front hip back, causing a rotational force that is not initiated by the back hip?
