Hey guys! Unfortunately haven’t been able to field test the new transition move as snowmeggon hit and it was -22c yesterday! Ouch... but I’ve been trying to feel out the footwork at home. Now I know the move I’d like to revisit OLD.

Here’s some dry swings just making sure the footwork is right

You are planting into way too staggered closed stance toward the left teepad side and swinging before your weight shifts to the front foot. When you crush the can properly your weight should be moving from left to right across the tee pad going toe toward heel ->. Stride forward or even slightly toward right, not to the left. Should end up on only slight stagger stance.

Great thanks SW I’ll use that when I can get outside again. Does the rear foot action / move look correct ?

I think so, but the direction is not quite correct as you are losing your rear hip depth by driving over to the left teepad side.

So I *think* I got it figured out. Discs feel like they are rocketing out and only from a one step which is cool. I’m still striding to the left too much that’s bad muscle memory unfortunately. It seems to be that the footwork is SO vital, as in the way the feet shift can make all the difference. If I don’t shift instep to instep nothing happens.

Somewhat better footwork/shift.

Your pre-swings look weight back/leaning back and all arm though. You hit the top of your backswing too early. In mid backswing your hand/disc are moving offline and curling back in around behind your body. Keep the disc moving along the wall to the top of the backswing out away from your body, so it's moving inside-out from your body/center.

Great thanks SW I finally feel like I’m
On the right track. Regarding the inside out swing when I get the behind tee view it looks like I’m rounding when I keep the disc inside the wall. I’ll get behind view tomo.

Yeah the weight on the rear side is i think due to wanting to turn up on top of the rear leg instead of rotating and pushing off of it ( rear leg like this \ ) which means I can’t shift well, something I’ve done wrong for a long time with my locked out knee and due to me thinking “the move “ was a fall/drop/push laterally toward the target. Instead of a roll/flex on the instep.

So how should I be initiating the backswing? By clearing the hip out of the way or simply shifting my weight. I know you’ve said it very explicitly in one of your videos!

Thanks again for your patience it means a lot to me as I want to nail this!

I was only talking about the backswing in Inside Swing Drill. You can't really swing forward in the drill, the wall is in the way coming out of the power pocket. At the top of the backswing your hand/disc should be next to the wall which is the opposite of rounding as the upper arm should be getting wider from your shoulders. Your backswing in your video is more over toward the back right teepad side with a collapsed/collapsing upper arm/rounding.

Backswing always starts after swinging forward first with rear heel off the ground/shifted forward - pre-swing/pump/press. To initiate backswing rear heel plants in ground while disc still going forward and heel stays on ground going up to the top of the backswing/transition. It's basically crushing the can mirrored. Your rear heel is airborne way before the top of the backswing, so you have no balance/support through your rear ankle. You are falling forward over your toes like Mike shows...

I’m starting to understand the move better and what is actually meant by bracing (I think).

You have to shift your weight to the plant leg and then make the move to start the swing whilst still applying pressure from the rear instep. The tricky
part I’m finding is that last bit; keeping pressure from the instep. Unless I’m thinking about this wrong. When I make the shift to the front leg my rear leg is completely deweighted and I can no longer use the instep. Then I’m on top of the brace leg instead of rotating up onto it. Am I on the right track here?

Do this without a staggered stance...
