A straight arm at 90 degrees is the reach part. The back part is the hip twist. This turns the plant foot half of your butt, your back and your shoulders away from the target. This coils your body and sets up an explosive athletic motion. It feels awkward cause your moving foward to your target on your throwing line but at the same time twisting your body away. Feels counter intuitive for sure.

I was just chilling in the hot tub and it hit me... I need the left side of my body to resemble a reversed letter R and the right side of my body the letter W, simultaneously in sync, when putting and driving only. I'll upload a vid when I'm done soakin...

That's an Apothany. It's definitely a different feeling...
