I would still post even crappy phone video if you can. I know the closer to right I've done things, the less strain it has had. I've probably had a half dozen times since I've started playing where...

Even penduluming it indoors and feeling constant pump and connection is pretty eye opening. Feeling attachment to the weight, no weird angles being created, and shoulder connection.

That hyzer video was a swing plane experiment trying to do that shoulder exchange thing like that guy does in the wing down hyzer video you posted a bit back. The non-existent shift felt weird but I...

I typically throw "flat" and slight hyzer shots on the course, and I think I try to throw the disc out there flat by following through real flat. It's clear in all of these routines that they follow...

I agree, I would focus on turning back longer and deeper and see where that gets you.

The door frame drill will hopefully help you feel how to turn deeper as you are moving farther forward...equal...

I think your arm gets pulled into the right orientation once tension catches up with it...I agree that you are likely "reaching back" with the arm too early so it disconnects and raises up before the...

I took poor video with indoor swings, and that shoulder under in the backswing to keep the tension is good. That pinning against the plant leg to trebuchet swing weight feeling is looking like the...

Yep, hit my left shoulder and left chest so many times to the bounce out griplocks. And felt the disc skim my chin a few times...that is scary and strange.
