This was what I needed to read. Still having a very hard time (transitioning from ultimate) getting my weight on to my heel to pivot but will have this in mind for next field session.

I don't feel I'm expressing this right.
One more try.
In the past, with my all-arm throw, I think my pivot was just follow-through.
But now, by waiting for the heel to hit the ground, I'm actually using my body turn to "lead" the throw to increase the whip at release.
I still have a long way to go, but this added 25-50' to my throw on my most recent field work.
Very exciting for me.

Ezra is so fun to watch, but he makes me feel bad about myself. I half expect his next video to be "How luscious hair, a crisp sense of style, and general badassery contribute to drive distance".

Yeah he is going to be a superstar if he dedicates himself to DG, although I bet he could make many factors more as a fitness model lol. I also think it was a bold move to choose to not fix his speech impediment. He could be the Disc Golf Schwarzenegger.

Sounds more like Barry Kripke or Elmer Fudd.

Starting your throw with the heel plant is also covered here:

As always he’s pretty convincing.

But.

I have a relative who plays with us occasionally. She doesn’t get onto the front leg, her upper arm flaps independently of the torso, rounds hugely. She is a bit erratic but throws nearly as far as me.

I think it’s because she releases correctly. She gets some kind of wrist snap that powers the disc. ??

I’ve tried to get a video and see what she does but never succeeded.
