pretty much what I was thinking.

Right, inside and outside terms are reversed for RHBH, if your rear foot is angled 90 to target line with rear toes on the line, then the front foot strides forward more like the blue or green curve arc line or pendulum if you are creating internal torque in the body and winding up like a pitcher or speed skater or even just normal walking. The ball/can is kicked straight down target if the if the foot/leg lags back hanging from the hip and toes whip through it.

Obviously these angles aren't the greatest, but I've never noticed the kind of "drop step" in how far back some of these left foot plants are. I don't think I can easily swing outside in because that left foot is in the way. Here's a really awful collage I made to try and illustrate.

their hips are turned away more thus giving more room for their legs. Your hips are almost inline.

Might be a chicken and egg scenario there, I'll have to mess around with it. I've got a feeling about something

To hijack this thread even more. So is it plantar flexion that you are doing when you are pressing the gas SW?

There is some for sure. It seems like it will happen if you stay weight over toes and get good hip rotation. Though I'm clearly no expert.



My question is what kind of motion Lizotte's foot movement would be classified, it's outside in, but then he kind of flares it back out at the end. Noticed it in the crush the can Lizotte video and then while watching Canadian nationals some of the CCDG slow motion, he has less of a drop step than my previous stills, but his foot has some wavy motion.

Internal hip torque(cocking the hips) that makes the foot circle inward counter clockwise.

Trying out what I'm calling the left drop step for the first time. With some bonus forehand action!
It's so cold, so very cold (20 degrees)
I like how that step feels, but obviously there's some timing adjustments I gotta make with it still, these are literally my first throws trying it.
