Looks pretty good overall, just need to stay more centered/balanced inside posture.

First thank you for the feedback and the awesome resources that your videos are!

Got out the field tonight after working on the suggested drills, the hips still seem tilted where you took the screenshot, should i not be taking as big of a last step to help solve that?

Overall thoughts?

Got to drive forward off right foot, instead of turning back on it and reaching left foot ahead/tipping back. You have to drag your CoG forward over your left foot which slows you down and wastes energy. Eagle lands more forward balanced/leveraged on left foot and free to accelerate into plant while turning back.

Most top throwers hop over the left foot so it's completely out of the way and don't have to drag over it or slow down, break stride. Note how the feet barely crossover each other and stay extremely center balanced like ballerina, and left foot travels the same or more distance than yours as both feet glide forward airborne together.

Tried both small hop and doing an x step attempted more centered this morning, the small hop made the same distance feel easier. But its uncomfortable (horrid bracing too) but I guess some of that is to expected when doing something new.

Do you think scrapping the x step is really worth it? x step video https://youtu.be/RzPkFhmrZKM

Hop video (hips seem a lot harder to rotate away from the target when hopping) but I think my hips as far as tipping/leaning back is better.

Yeah balance is better in x-step back to front in side view, but not so much left to right looking behind tee. In the side view you can see how you drift over your front leg too far.

Simon Syndrome. You are stepping over to the left too staggered closed and not loading back or driving forward off the rear foot/hip properly.

Working on getting of the left foot in x step and not leaning, and staying more center balanced.

In the stride are the hips still too open?

Looks good, but kind of lazy, not driving aggressively enough off your right foot/leg going into x-step.

Try running 100 yards like this quick and efficient:

Man this made me realize part of what I'm doing wrong with my footwork. This gif along with the Eagle diagram finally make sense to me!

Default Reform the form

https://youtu.be/0auqDrQkk4I?t=2

Wow, I underestimated how much changing speed would affect the throw/revert to old habits, just now have got it to this point. thoughts?

The last step looks big to me watching it after but doesn't feel like I'm stretching when throwing is there a drill or test to figure out how far it should be going?

Thanks!
