I don't believe having "rounded" shoulders has anything to do with it. It's always been medically accepted that the throwing motion is not a "natural" movement of the shoulder or arm joints. It puts undue stress on those joints/muscles/ligaments when making a throwing motion. How many sports that involve throwing do you see anyone over 40 playing and how many young pros have you seen throw their arms out young in a sport like baseball? While a hard BH is not exactly a "natural" movement either, it is a LOT less stressful on joints and other tissues than the FH. Won't even touch on the aspects of overhand/tomahawk throwing. Good luck keeping your rotator cuff in working order if you want to use those throwing styles a lot.

google rounded shoulders and impingement, or bad posture and rotator cuff, or any permutation of those terms and you'll find a ton of info linking the two things.

Thanks for finding the time to post this in between the frequent bathroom visits you probably have to take due to all the dumb veggies you probably eat.

But I don't quite understand the part about Eagle's rear leg recoiling away though, that seems like a completely separate thing? His BH form also has that type of rear leg recoil, and he is basically the longest BH and FH thrower ever so is this a negative thing at all?

Correct on first part.

Eagle's BH doesn't recoil the rear leg like that, it everts forward like 6-12" before it might ever recoil back. His back foot on his FH basically stays in place and then actually backs away.

Stephen Strasburg is/was also one of the best pitchers in the MLB, doesn't mean his mechanics are good. Same with Tiger Woods.
