Throw slightly upward nose down to the apex and let the disc glide out. If you throw downward nose up you are creating a lot of lift and drag to the apex and won't get any nose down glide out from apex.

But not during the reachback. There is normally a backwards tilt to the spine during reachback, aligning it with the front leg/foot as SW has said. Then the spine becomes more upright as you plant/begin the throw.
During your one leg drills this will most likely be less exaggerated than you'd see in a full throw.
I don't push the spine vertical or change tilt, although it may appear that way. I simply turn everything from the pelvis maintaining the same forward athletic tilt. Forward tilt in backswing appears / as chest is facing away, while forward tilt in late forward swing appears \ with chest facing more forward, and inbetween it appears vertical like l looked at from side view, but if looked at from behind tee you would see the forward tilt chest toward knees.

After you land on the plant leg the butt is cleared away from the target, so the torso swings/pivots around and is now facing forward and downward slightly.

It's pretty weird...it's not just your spine turning on axis, but also your butt is counterweighting your torso swinging.

These explanations were really helpful. I had some success today reaching back like this and it definitely feels stronger.

Not sure why I never got this before but it makes a lot of sense, and feels much better too.

The timing change to throw when my weight is already on my plant foot is proving to be very difficult. Any ideas for how to work on this? You can see from my throws yesterday mostly what is happening with the right leg pump thing I'm doing. I've been throwing with this timing for so long it is pretty ingrained.

It's all about starting and finishing in balance.

Good point, and it is easier to remember if you think of their shift + counterpart < and >.
