Your rear leg moves your center of mass/butt forward, but it can not add downward weight force shift into the front leg. Gravity is what generates weight(weight=mass*Gravity), falling in balance/tune to it to add more G force or weight force like pumping your legs on a swing.

I agree your lower spine is not leading and your rear arm is hanging back away from your center during the throw and slowing your rotational speed and force into the throw.

The other major issue is that your elbow is never leading forward of the shoulder. You are hugging yourself and dropping the elbow low into the body and your upper arm angle is less than 90 so the lower arm fulcrum is never set forward of the shoulder. So both of your elbows are basically reversed from where they should be. Rear elbow should be in tight. Front elbow should be up and out leading so you have a wide upper arm angle all throughout the throw. This will feel weird to you at first, like you can't generate much power... unless you turn your body/shoulders much further back and forth with the arm.

Hold your front foot back to the wall as long as you can while your butt leads your fall/stride.
