Wait.... so I shouldn't be consciously rotating my hips? Just focusing on this lateral hip movement?

You have to shift to the hip before you can turn on it.

Your rear leg should push your front leg into the shot. When there's no space between the legs, the front leg clears allowing your rear leg's momentum to continue into the shot.

Yes, ish, there has been lots of talk recently on facebook about spinning the hips actively, this is wrong and got me angry and made me make this video. However actually focusing on the shift is again IMO not the best plan, focusing on everything Sidewinder films about balance and movement is a better option, by being in balance the shift will happen naturally.

I love all of Sidewinders movement drills, things like the elephant walk, the riding the bull, practising those sort of movements will make the shift happen naturally.

The hips spin because of the lateral shift. They will spin but don't try and make them spin.

Hopefully the last image of the four below should show why it's not an active attempt to spin the hips. 4th image shows the back leg completely deweighted - ie it's done everything it can do, they don't then push the spin around, the hips rotate in place because they've got nowhere else to take the stored up energy once they are fully braced against the front leg. The back legs energy is all lateral towards the target.





Note from frame one through to frame 4 the difference in angles of the hips shown in DrkEvans initial screenshot. If you look at a frame before this and a frame after you really see a marked difference in the angle.

Thanks for the insight guys!

rhatton1 yeah the form check group got me thinking I need to spin my hips.

gotta think about the throw differently now, and hopefully I can find a place I can safely throw a hammer.

Now that we've stopped it, it is released through the swing.
So what is happening to the ball through the hit? Is the balance board shoving it forward? Or just keeping it from rolling off the front?

The hips have pretty much done what they need to at this point. Once they rock forward to brace, the rest kind of happens naturally. The right hip moves out of the way (to the right) and allows everything else to come through.
