Default Well, I know my form is bad.

To me it looks like I'm strong-arming everything. I'm hitting 260' with a Mako3 this way. I know I have the length, strength, and athletic ability to throw far, I just need some help to get there. The videos are of me practicing from a standstill with an Aviar.

(And sorry for the crazy sounds the slo-mo is making. You should probably mute or turn down the volume)

Pretty much. Need to get your elbow forward and out away from body with the shoulder closed and swing the arm/disc from the shoulder. Also need to brace and center yourself, you are leaning back and forth tipping your head/upper body instead of rotating it and leading from the ground up and staying centered and balanced in posture on the front leg. Both your feet spin out during the throw, so your weight is not shifting.

Is it ok or beneficial to practice all of this from a standstill? What will the disc flight look or feel like when I start to get it. What should I look for?

Yes. Faster straighter flights and effortless sling of heavy momentum.

Watch this video for reach back help...it's a "backswing" to load up, not just trying to get the disc farther away from the target. Turn around the spine/into your hip and back instep, don't lean back.

Hey, just wanted to thank you guys for the help. Just staying centered and twisting instead of reaching helped tremendously. Was driving well over 300' from a stand still today. Also finished a glow round at -8. Thanks a lot.
