Does this prove that the rear foot does an active motion in the throw? With the rear foot being so extended it must be right?

What was the result of the throw? Did the disc do what Paul intended? Does he lift his rear foot often?


In other words, we don't have enough information to judge from this picture alone.

The rear leg is just countering the weight of the swing at this point. The only part the rear leg is really "active" is pushing your weight into the plant. If your leg/foot is not in contact with the ground, there's no way it can add anything to the shot except keep you balanced.

I ment like if the rear foot is extended as shown, Paul must have extended his rear foot off the ground to make it happen.

so if you want to be technical the rear leg is an integral part of the walk/run up (duh) and the plant but not the throw (except as balance, of course)

more importantly, does it matter?

IMO this is way too late in the sequence to show what you are asking.

This position can be created by forcing the back foot out, probably a bit later than he is in the swing, but without a proper weight shift, which comes off of the rear foot.

I think the part that really shows the rear leg is active is the point where the pros are all in full reach back and the rear foot is just de-weighting the knees are in close together. Where so so so many of us are in the immovable horsestance as SW puts it. There is no way to really mimic getting that knee under the body and properly shift weight onto the front foot without and active push from the rear foot. THAT is the point of the sequence I think proves the rear foot is active not just passive.

And the part that most people get wrong is when they push, they extend the leg instead of the foot?

YEP!! That's where we go over the top.

The difference in extending the rear leg vs the gas pedal

Nice! That's exactly what I ment with the post. Extending the leg wouldn't get the rear foot into the position in the pic. Pic more proves that McBeth is efficiently doing the gas pedal move?
