I’ve recently started throwing a lot of forehands and am having a lot of pain right above the elbow. Does anyone know what this issue could be from? Thank you

Inside of the elbow, pinky finger side? If so that's golfer's elbow as a common term.

Usually seems to happen from getting the elbow way in front of the shoulder plane. Often people will turn back and swing the arm itself way back of the shoulder plane, then move the arm/elbow forward using the shoulder socket. If you video your form from the side you'll likely have an instant where the elbow is way ahead of your torso and your hand that puts the strain on your elbow.

I got this a while ago when I started throwing more FH's for power. I took some time off throwing them, like 1-2 weeks since it was minor, and learned to leverage the arm better rather than trying to snap the disc/hand at the target, which is how it felt for me when I had the elbow way too in front. I haven't had that issue since and I throw 50-75' farther FH than I used to when I got that pain.

Default Universal swing path

I think this is some fundamental kinetics of the FH swing that I've been missing. I came across this video on the Universal swing path (outward/inward) in regards to tennis. In my FH I had been bringing the disc backwards on the plane without the circling. Is what he is explaining correct for the FH? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GeEl...youtu.be&t=104

Definitely similar loop at the top of my FH backswing and agree with inside out swing path.

Thanks SW. I remember seeing that in your video but kind of put it on the back burner to incorporate later because at some point there was discussion about the nuances of the pros and how they did this.

Same kind of loop motion with throwing baseball and football too.

BH is also similar with inside-out or narrow-wide from your center and loop transition even when you keep the disc still.

It's easy to see in the BH with the overhead markup you have with KJ on the top frame and the Rounding on the bottom frame.
