You're not set up with the correct tilt/angle or balance to be able to stride forward off the left foot...you're tilted back and waiting to land butt-first on the plant leg. So it feels impossible...

I think most players turn back too much and too early, then have to turn forward into the shot. They are initiating everything with rotation, rather than a lateral weight shift that turns into...

My arm/hit felt a bit off on the nose up shots. I really think it was that I couldn't just concentrate on the weight of the disc and get that full sling through...I was 100% focused on what my hips...

Yeah like in this image, number 6 is the important one to feel that you can really swing from.

The power pocket is 5, and it's just kind of the next stage of 4 if you've kept that weighted swing...

I got to throw like a dozen shots today with that hip feeling. This is definitely the right thing to do and the start of a big breakthrough. I know this because SW's drills all feel more intuitive...

I'm really not a fan of the power pocket term either. Just try to keep that heavy pulling feeling of the disc during the whole throw, while being aware that it's ok for your forearm to get lagged...

I would say it's more you should be moving laterally toward the target all together, and the turn back is going to be happening from the hips. The upper body should move with the hips or be moved BY...

Nice, that looks way better! I can see in your pre-swings that you're feeling that arc where the disc wants to continue out, and then you're getting to the same spot in those throws.

That's...

I would slow down for starters. You are really running forward quickly, and overturning your lower body backward. Your feet are both facing away from the target as the legs are uncrossing in the...

I'm feeling more and more forward in BH shots, with the throw happening more in front of my body.

Try doing your LHFH motion back and forth with swing and backswing, with either a lever or nothing...

The part at 4:15 is pretty much exactly what I was looking for in this instance. About once you've resisted and the hip starts to clear a bit, that you can just go with it.

I can definitely feel...

Yeah I completely agree with the rear leg thing in the BH shot.

In your LHFH, take your off arm elbow and tuck it to your right up to anchor up for the shot. Right now your off arm is pulling...

That makes sense. I can feel a lot of leverage through my rear instep and leg, but in a way that it powers my front hip and then the front hip pulls the body. Whereas a shift in front throw feels...
