Think throwing a basketball underhand or tossing water from a bucket into the target. Should gain more width in to your release and follow thru. With a disc there is just a tad more bend in your elbow unless you go full feldburger. Something to look for when trying these out is how your levers open outwards and not inwards

That looked better on getting it closer.

Need to work on better posture/engaging core muscles to post up on front leg and hinge into the thigh.

Hey Randy thanks for joining the party. I think Sidewinder is pulling his hair out by now trying to fix my mess on his own. I think I understand your analogies of throwing heavier things. Not sure i get what you mean by “how your levers open outwards and not inwards.” If you don’t mind elaborating.

SW, the side by side is extremely helpful. I had been watching myself unable to put my finger on what was wrong, other than “why does it look like i’m sticking my butt out?”


Here’s a couple slow ones just focused on trying to match McB’s lines for spine curve and pelvis tilt:

And since my off arm was ticking me off the way it opens and swings, I stuffed it in my pocket for a few:

So I get I’m trying to activate my core to improve my posture, but what does “post up on front leg and hinge into thigh” mean? Also, what is the significance of the purple circles at the intersections of the thigh lines?

Thanks guys.

I don't have any hair to pull out. Your hinge, Purple circle, is more in your calf/knee instead of the thigh/hip as Aimee demo's...

The first one, your front heel is airborne going into the hit, so all your pressure is jamming into the front toes instead of pivoting on the heel or more flat footed with more stable ankle on the ground. The second one you got a heel pivot, but the hinge is still in your calf instead of the thigh so your hips kind of go around each other instead of creating a more solid post on the upper front leg. I don't particularly recommend the hand in the pocket, it's a bit too restrictive and your rear elbow is still able to go behind your back. Really want to get the elbow in tight/front of the body to squeeze/anchor the body forward into the front leg.

Here’s a few from today trying to keep plant heel down and hinge into thigh. I can’t tell if i’m doing it or not. Maybe it would be clearer if I filmed from the side. Couldn’t throw many because my back and shoulder are killin me.

Need to rest for a while.... and slow down.

Rear arm move is no bueno on the back from my own experience, probably shoulder as well because it affects your follow thru/deceleration as you drift over leftward outside your posture/center and slow down. Body needs to stay centered inside wall/posture all the way thru, and not drift over to the swing side. Rear hand stays in tight to center to leverage the rest of the body forward of it.

Left shoulder finish forward inside front toes.

Turn body back from the feet/hips, not the rear arm.

Ok i gave it 48 hours and decided i need to stretch properly and throw softer. Worked on coming through more narrow and balanced and trying not to swing the left arm. I don’t have it coming in early enough to swim yet - have not felt the leverage from it - but hoping i’m working in that direction. Was also trying to shift weight in such a way as to eliminate the plant knee “snap” lockout moment that I had been seeing right after release. Everything feels real awkward and robotic. So much thinking. Hoping the drills will build some muscle memory as time goes on.

Looking better. Your shoulder is not swinging back and forth very much, need to elongate the shoulder swing and let go of the arm/disc.

Door Frame Drill, your rear foot is too close to door frame, walk forward from door frame and feel your right shoulder pulled back behind the rear shoulder like sling shot to the rear leg.
