I haven't been able to replicate what I did that one day when my drives felt good lol. Annoying. Been trying to work on stand stills now.
My right lower back/hip has been getting sore from backhands so I have had to take it easier too. Could something in my form be causing that?

Here's one standstill and one x step. Sorry for the bad angle

Maybe not landing in dynamic upright enough on front leg. Looks like your foot plants kind of soft and flat footed, and your weight is not coming with it suddenly enough, trying to drive too late off rear foot.

I was throwing pretty poorly yesterday and noticed I have started turning my shoulders less, maybe because of focusing too much on bringing the off arm forward. Tried turning more and instantly got better feeling throws. What does it look like?

Need to lead more with your elbow out/forward to swing the disc in/out more of center chest.

Update. I feel like my drives have become more consistent and I'm hitting my lines more often than ever. No back issues either. Overall driving feels better but distance is still the same although maybe easier to achieve.

I have been trying to get the elbow out more which has been difficult. Today was a little better but still needs work.

Looking pretty good! Your hips look really stiff and could probably use some mobility exercises.
Bring your shoulder forward like using the back of the shoulder ram down a door. You spin your shoulder around too much which collapses the upper arm.

Thanks! You're probably right about the hips lol. Haven't done much stretching/mobility in a while. I tried the battering ram drill but can't get the same feeling with a disc. Maybe I'm focusing too much on bringing the disc to chest instead of keeping the elbow out? Typing this I tried to forget the lower arm and did some swings and felt a little better have to experiment this more

Feels like my form has only gone worse lately and idk what to do. Took a video today and noticed my warmup swing looks decent but when I actually try to throw everything gets messed up lol. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1FBr...ew?usp=sharing

Your rear foot looks to be spinning down, instead of loading and driving into the plant. You then drive too late after planting front heel and fall back away from target/front foot.

Note how you finish with left foot behind right foot and your shoulders square to target, instead of being pulled thru shoulders inline to target and left foot stepping forward.

Tried to keep left foot from spinning and focused on pushing like in swivel chair drill. Feels very different so just wondering if I should continue like that or if I should do something different. Arm collapses even more now but could be because I was only focusing on the left foot.
