What is meant to be doing the work to move the hammer? The weight shift starts it correct? If I remember rightly I was moving my hips to start the forward swing/backswing and felt a good connection .

Swinging a hammer at work. Confirmed I was just losing the taut feeling! Hopefully get back on track now.

2 steps forward, 1 step back. Sometimes it's more like 2 steps back (for me at least). Glad you got the feeling again.

Had a great session yesterday. Felt that connection again which was really nice. My timing is still off but I was mainly getting used to making sure my rear heel stays down when I’m moving to the back leg. I’m not really sure if I’m on top of the hip or not still... it felt good.

A few takeaways;

Striding Right to left, not good!

Still going back to a non efficient swing plane from time to time.


Upper arm angle too small, usually good when I go real slow, but those shots are like barely 200.

I think my inside out-ness is getting better and it looks like my left shoulder is turning further back now.

Taught my buddy a lot of things I’ve learned here as he is often in pain with his wonky form. He was throwing further and easier within an hour! The hammer was essential in showing him the way!





These were both around 200ft. On the course I was throwing rivers and leo3’s around 320’ at 60% which was nice, they had great stability and carry. And I know I’m not quite there yet either!

I'm pretty sure that you're still being stiff. Especially as the throwing arm just stops suddenly in the follow through.

One thing I noticed: try supinating rather than pronating your wrist in the backswing.

For outside, inside, outside swing: watch this at around 3:30:

Could you elaborate a little on this? These were very low power shots, I’m finding as soon as I start to put any kind of quickness trying to shift between the feet quicker things get pretty messy.

Thanks deyo I’ll give it a re watch. I did try to supinate but it felt forced and un-natural
