Default 900 rated and around 350-370

Hi,

Been playing about 3 years and have been around the 320-330 range for a while and this year I added som more distance. However as everyone else I am looking for some more

As far as I can see, I am a bit early on the reachback compared to when my plant foot hits the ground.

I have also had a problem that my power pocket is a bit too high (almost at my chin), is it better now or does it need to be lower down?

Biggest problem is that you are not really shifting your weight from the rear foot to front foot. When your front foot plants, your rear foot is still on ground. You want to shift earlier and more suddenly like how a running back would change directions to juke out a defender. At some point both heels should be off the ground at the same time. Your questions are about upper body mechanics, but you need to focus on footwork and lower body mechanics if you want to add power to your throw.

Yeah, need to stride hips straighter/deeper. You lost all hip depth/leverage on your rear leg going into the plant and get stuck in too staggered/wide/flat footed stance.

Thanks for the answers! Will be out doing some field work soon and working on the weight shift and footwork.

Should I maybe do a 1 step to get a better feel for it or is it better to do a slow run up like my throw?

Throwing is the more fun way to practice, obviously, but I recommend learning the weight shift/maintaining hip depth by doing the crush the can and butt wipe (and other weight shift drills such as Hershyzer, kick the can/ball, riding the bull, turbo encabulator etc.) without throwing. Chances are, if you're like me, you've probably thrown so many times that even if you try to make corrections to your weight shift and footwork during a throw you will naturally revert to old habits. IMO the best way to beat that tendency is to perform the weight shift correctly in the drills, and do the drills more often than you actually throw.

It takes a ton of patience, but I believe it yields better results than trying to make the corrections while throwing, even from a stand still. You should definitely get out and throw obviously to test out what you're working on. But again I emphasize the importance of learning good habits through doing drills without throwing.
