Hello again!

As always thank you for any input. I am just getting back into the swing of things after winter and busy season at work and am feeling good. In the linked video I believe I am planting my leg open and am too vertical to get any distance. I can lean over so that my nose is over my toes but when I do that I lose any ability to throw straight. I can definitely tell it's more powerful though because my sky hyzers drop where my straight shots go. Any tips? Feel free to call out any regression.

Thanks!

Door Frame Drills should keep pulling your shoulder further back later striding into the plant. Your shoulder is back too early and going forward too early and you are moving the disc around instead of moving your body around it.

Your left arm is also dragging behind, instead of squeezing you forward into the plant.

Hello again,

I haven't full incorporated everything yet but I have made strong progress at least it appears that way when the disc leaves my hand. The two linked videos are from today and I can tell I am still moving the disc instead of moving my body around the disc a little bit. I'm a little bit confused about how to start from a standstill without doing so so any tips on that would be fantastic.

The door frame drill was really good for ingraining loading up on the right hip. I am doing so and letting the momentum from the throw move my body in place which has resulted in flatter and longer throws. I plan on keeping up with the door frame drills and the standstills until I am more consistent with loading my weight onto the back heel and then incorporating an x step.

I would have to say the biggest aha moment I had today was throwing in place. It's almost like I set my spine and spin rapidly from the ground up.

I like the shorter stride one better. In the backswing you are rotating too early or too fast away and peak too early before your horizontal motion/shift which occurs too late.

Need more blending of the rotational and horizontal motion together, and more swinging motion back and forth before backswing. You are starting too static.

SC "The lateral move occurs in the backswing"

Hello again,

I am extremely focused on the small parts of the throw and I feel like I'm missing the big picture. I am really confused on what my hands and shoulders need to be doing to transfer power to the disc. I am trying to release the disc with my shoulder facing the basket but I feel like that is way to open.

Looks pretty good to me. I would maybe try to firm up the angle between upper arm and chest because it looks like it collapses a little bit right when you start turning shoulders towards target. When I feel like my shoulders are opening too much too fast, I try thinking about getting to the brace sideways and then letting the disc accelerate past me. The whole “disc should be the part that moves the fastest” idea

Yep, way too open and arm hugging yourself/chest or rounding. Need to give yourself space to swing the disc in and then release the arm wide away from you.

Yep, you are setup in some weird stance/posture. When you plant your front foot it's very flat and opens up and not set up to resist or catch yourself moving into it.

Setup in a relaxed neutral natural stance about shoulder width and then take a small stride turning further back into plant and landing toes/instep first and then heel.

Here's a video related to the upper body, there are two notes however.

1. I state to lean back in the video, I don't know why I said that, I try very hard to have a forward tilt in my throw.

2. You don't have to tell me which one is correct, I believe neither are but the first is the immediate adjustment I want to make and the second is as the video states, what I am doing.

I am clueless on how to adjust properly.
