Default Small guy trying to throw far

I'm finally brave enough to post up a video here to get critiques!

Things I notice immediately are: turning back way too early, not getting off my back foot early enough, and lazy off arm. I've been working on getting into the power pocket and I've actually made quite a bit of progress compared to my older form. Even in standstills I have a really hard time getting onto my front foot because it doesn't feel like any power is generated without forcing some rotation even though I know that's not what I'm supposed to do. Any help is appreciated.

I think you nailed the analysis: too late off back foot and then getting jammed up on front hip because your weight isn't on top of the hip before you throw. I think Hershyzer drill is appropriate for addressing this and check out the vimeo link for Dave Feldberg's take on it.

Yeah, pretty spot on self analysis, your stance/stride is moving you too closed/rightward and you are jamming into your front hip because your stance is too staggered and trying to rotate behind/left of the front hip/thigh/femur. Need to stride more linear/inside your body so you can rotate inside the front thigh/femur and clear the hip.

Your rear arm is behind your back when you plant and messes up your weightshift because all the weight/momentum in your rear arm is moving the opposite direction it should be and fighting the body. This is also part of the problem with planting into too closed stance. Need to get your rear arm in front of your body/chest anterior, instead of posterior/back, and use that to leverage the rest of your body/swing forward.
