How does someone like Brian Earhart get away with that sort of rear leg action but still throws far? I guess just doing all the other things correctly. And he is definitely leveraging off the rear...

Oh I see. Yeah I wasn't getting balanced over the rear leg? Like I was just blowing through the rear leg on the way to the plant instead of being more on top of it for longer with my weight then...

Been forever since I took some video. A lot of the same-ole me trying too hard stuff. I feel like I'm staying turned back better into the plant, but getting to max reachback far too early. I'm...

I think he understands it more intuitively and just has trouble communicating it effectively, along with some language barriers too although his English is very good.

Yeah it's a pretty fundamental change to go from "over the top" like you are doing to "shift from behind". So feeling weird is good.

You need to look away from the target more to allow your shoulders and hips to turn more in the backswing. Your swing is halfway over when you land on the front foot when it should only be starting...

Should feel "weaker" in the wrist because you should be using more finger/hand muscles to grip instead of wrist/forearm muscles. Loose arm, tight grip! Easy to say, hard to do.

First two images are how I grip a disc. The blue dot represents where like 90%+ of the pressure is on the disc, especially near release. The middle finger, ring finger, and pinky are all just...

Is it like you are pinching the disc? I don't think it should just be the base of the thumb applying pressure. You want your pinch point to allow the disc to pivot around that pinch. The pressure on...

Are there any drills to help with this? Closed shoulder? This might be the hardest part of the throw for us early openers.

That is the frame from when your weight settles on the front leg, here are a few pros, look much further they are turned back and notably how much further back their elbows are.

Lots of self-hugging going on, which is acceptable during these socially distanced times, but unfortunately prevents you from throwing further. Your arm is getting pinned up against your chest and...

Then you should really look at how they finish the shot and follow through as well. Since GG is supinating through impact, this isn't great for the shoulder in the follow through so he uses his elbow...

Try the perpetual motion drill and that will teach you how to stay balanced so that you could reverse the swing if going slow enough.
