So once my weight is shifted to the front leg I don’t have to keep pushing with the rear? It’s the the move itself that needs to happen correctly?

Correct. If you try to keep pushing through a braced front leg you will wrench your back and spin out/blow out your brace.

Kind of realized something today that’s really stupid.... I haven’t been coiling into my rear hip, at all... !

I was wondering why I couldn’t make the move and when I thought I did nothing really happened. I wasn’t coiling into the rear hip to even get that torque in the first place! I was just turning back. Instead of loading. Hopefully this helps someone.

Does my rear foot have to come down onto the heel to fully shift my spine to it? I’m thinking; in an x step I always keep my heel off the ground on my rear foot, does that mean my spine never shifts to the rear leg?

Heel down just makes it easier to maintain balance/posture when shifting and turning.

Try the Hershyzer drill for practicing being on the rear hip and then shifting forward off that.

Hi all!

After a few months of getting derailed I’m finally back to a very similar spot like in post #403.

Whilst figuring out how to move between my feet it became apparent that it shouldn’t be THAT hard to make this little move. I watched a bunch of golf videos, baseball videos and disc golf stuff. Re visited my old breakthrough videos to see what had changed.

It came really obvious when I saw this clip of PP;

https://youtu.be/XMY1_Sc7geU

She was balanced almost completely over the back leg (duh) and made the move very efficiently this way. When I watched my videos a lightbulb went off... I was kind of pushing with my whole leg/foot targetward AND trying to make this move at the same time which put me like \ . When I need to be = /

SO, I rewatched the 403 video and saw that my balance was more towards the rear leg therefore I must’ve been making the shift easier (even though I didn’t know it at the time).

So I’ve been giving this new way a few test runs in the workshop and it feels really great. I’m feeling that biiiiig leverage on the disc again like I did before.

Unfortunately no rounds or field now until I visit the uk for Christmas but im looking forward to seeing things fly. Still got to do some posture and stride changes, flex the knee more but I feel like I’m
Back on track!

Another thing I noticed which I’ve heard clement say several times is that the move happens in the backswing. Is this how the super lag is created by separating the hips and torso? Because in the PP video above, you can see she makes the move before she reaches the top of the backswing (or just continues to turn back depending on which way you look at it)like SW has said before to keep turning into the plant.

I haven’t played with this yet as I want to get this new balance engrained.

Still lots to work on but here it is, thanks guys for your saint like patience!

Looks like a scene from a Rob Zombie movie.

Need to turn your rear foot further back. You are tipping back over a sideways rear leg. Note how your rear knee cap is facing the camera, while Erin's rear knee is facing almost 90 degrees away. Erin is in athletic tilt on his rear leg and getting his front shoulder to load much further back over the rear leg. You can't turn your front shoulder any further back because your rear foot is restricting it due to off balance condition and also causes your front leg to staggered your stance too much, and looks like everything is going early before you can really plant your hip into the front foot with the front foot more underneath/inside your CoG.

Thanks for the comparisons SW. I played around with this today and I found it really hard to make the move between my feet without dragging my heel and even just staying up on my toes was harder. I think my foot may of been too far backwards? (Is that a thing?) actually thinking about it, if I was more over the back leg then in theory it should be easier to shift to the front.. hmm more testing needed

In the first pic mid stride above, it looks like you are tipping your upper spine back like Steve shows in the power stance vid below.

I wouldn't worry about staying on toes or anything other than staying balanced.
