If your arm is tight during your throw your strong arming it. It should be loose. Most of the drive should come for your hips.

I have a young friend who has been working with me lately, and he said I was 100% strong arming it. I think he is right because (long story short) I just finished today's drills where I'm pretending I'm "dragging a heavy object" behind me to force my torso ahead of me, and I felt something I haven't felt before. I was just throwing my overstable discs in my yard, but they were going a bit further than usual, but on a high hyzer. I'm getting no control yet.. lol. But I digress... can someone "strong arming" the disc have zero fatigue? I've always assumed someone strong arming would eventually have pain, fatigue, etc. Thanks for the comments.
Notice no one cares? Once you get over a certain aqe, no one gives a ****.

Hopefully this doesn't derail your thread, DiscFifty. When I first read that post I figured it was a kid just trollin'. But looking at the name, Wolfen70, now I'm thinking it's an old guy just stating a fact.

However, I'd advise you to add a disclaimer to not try this at home... Someone with inferior technique is going to get their fingers pinched, particularly if they set themselves up a little too far forward or don't release cleanly.

Could spell the end of someone's throwing career (or force them to learn to use their non-dominant arm )

SW, help me make sense of this please. Are you saying that throwing 80% of max distance from standstill indicates strong arming, or not strong arming?

What would be a good ratio of standstill distance vs. runup distance?

Thanks.

Thanks, but I think common sense comes into play and people are aware of their fingers when they shut any door, and should be on the backside of the door as demonstrated.
