Then as your plant foot comes down (if you are doing a run up), your hips/legs should start the rotation forward. Then your chest/shoulders, then the elbow/forearm straight across your chest, followed by the disc. The power comes from the deep reach back that causes your whole body to wind-up and store energy. Gettting this down to a smooth, natural flow is vital because it will allow you to focus all the stored energy into the moment of release.
What he said.
Also what helped me was:

What Scott Papa says...the runup is not to gain any speed..its to get your body in the right position to throw...the run up can be a walk up and it shouldn't matter much, it's those last two steps to the plant...your back should be basically to your target, then plant and pullthrough....
