Came for the bow and arrow, left with the myotatic reflex.

Good summary on what I've been trying to do with the one-step since earlier in the year. The past month focusing on pausing the reach back until I plant my lead foot before moving the disc forward. I cant think of anything else I need to do, so I'm ready to include the x-step in November on the practice field, I hope only to spend a few months before moving onto the 3-step. I have much better results than the sloppy 4-step from a year ago and decided to rebuild with the standstill.

Thanking you for posting your video's! I'm always watching when I see them.

Yeah I was curious about that too. Is the stretch reflex (tensing up?) supposed to be avoided, or used to one's advantage in the swing?

For me, I don't want to tense because I want to maximize the rebound. The more you can relax into the stretch, the more bounce you get.

This cone drill is good for getting a feel of a loaded swing but I don't love how it is presented as something to avoid. It's something to work with.

For me, the myotatic reflex leads to a winning swing thought, which is to draw out the pull-back and not rush it. To stretch, in the sense of an unloaded extension free of tension. I know that at a certain moment, determined by the sheer forces of momentum directed by footwork, I will *have* to unspring. Having done this a bunch, I begin to anticipate that feeling and that sling feel, and then start to feel I can delay and stretch and extend just a tad more.

It could be all placebo, but heck, it seems to work.
