Too much manual elbow bending back and forth. Pretend you arm/disc unit is a heavy wet towel hanging your shoulder socket.

I don't think you are gripping the hammer correctly. Your thumb should have total control the weight on the back of the handle, so if you push your thumb forward it should extend the hammer head like pounding through a nail. There shouldn't be any wrist flexion or extension with a hammer, only very slight ulnar flexion like karate chop to push it so your wrist/thumb should be in most powerful position to deliver a hit.

Once you get that thumb leveraged grip, since you have a mallet - swing all the way until you hit yourself(or almost) on shoulder blades both ways, so your elbow and wrist will need to hinge back and forth at the top.

Cool, you're getting to the plant before any forward motion which is what I wanted to be sure of. And I like that your torso and hips seem to be more together when doing that, than in some of your standstill shots where it looks like you try to fire the hips on their own rather than keeping everything firm.

Hmm, how is your radius and ulna stacked when holding a disc? Hammer grip would suggest they are sideways and not on top of each other?

Can I get a timeout here?

Watching in regular speed it looks like your striding right to left on hyzer flip line but are simultaneously doing a ninja move to the target. Slowing it down, frame by frame, it looks like you start right to left then after you send your rear foot targetward it appears to change your stride direction a little (more targetward) and you seem to finish almost left to right with your final step.

I don't know what I'm asking, I guess if you just have any comment on your plan of attack or thought process and if this is how you always do it, etc. Please

Rotated about 90 degrees of supination. You have to grip the handle of the tool you are using properly to leverage it, like the difference between gripping a football vs baseball, but same throwing motion.
