Damn that final look at the path of his hips from above was really telling. It's all lateral as opposed to that inch or two shift forward. Really helps visualize some of the things I've been fixing.

Would a stagger that's too big essentially be a diagonal line from that view? As if you're moving forward off the wall while making the lateral shift forward?

Not sure I'm following the 1st part regarding lateral vs forward. Are you talking about the first AMG "clearing the hips" vid in this thread?

The more you stagger/close off your stance, then the wall/buttwipe should be relatively diagonal with the stance. Most people struggle with this when staggering/closing off too much and hump the goat with the rear leg and get jammed behind the front hip.

I was talking about Brodie Smith and the software tracking his hip motion while he was working on butt wipe. His movement was forward and then targetward on the bad example and completely lateral in the good example.

I could see the stagger being a diagonal shift off the wall and it sort of perfectly explains why it’s bad to me.

I was playing around with a straight stride the other day. Like, directly down the target line from my rear foot. Feels waaay easier to turn into the backswing via the hip/pelvis, and the door frame position comes a lot more naturally.

I recently had a bit of a revelation, or so I hope, regarding the hips. I have for so long tried to find ways to generate power using my legs and hips, and I have struggled with consistency.

After watching a bunch of Shawn Clement videos, his mantra of: “Go get the ground, get the body out of the way” suddenly clicked with me. I tried to incorporate this in my throw by doing the following:

1. Weight on rear instep, push body out of the way so I can get into my back swing

2. Weight on front instep, push body out of the way so I can swing towards the target

At no point did I try to throw it hard or generate power, instead I simply try to give myself space to properly swing. I could comfortably throw around 90% of my previous max distance with little effort, and I was hitting my lines much better than I normally do. It felt clean and efficient.

After closer examination, I realize that this is more or less the elephant walk drill, and probably butt wipe drill, as well as most of SW22’s other drills. Some of us need to hear the same thing many times and in many different ways before it gets through.

Anyway, just wanted to share this aha-moment. Does it sound like a step in the right direction?

What do you mean by get the body out of the way?

"Clearing the Hip/s" out of the way to allow the arm to swing freely.
