Default Another Critic This

Working on pushing the hips before the throw. I hate that i can't see my feet and the vid is upside down, but I'll post another after I get some thoughts. This one is mainly for my hips engagement. The "whoosh" sound is real, btw.

Looks like your front knee is going past your ankle, so it's not braced. Also your rear foot should end up moving forward/behind the front foot and tangled/squeezed, to counter the action of the arm/disc swing.

I watched a video where Paul communicated in a clinic to point your rear foot heel towards the target after the x–step. I'll disregard that for now. He said it helped to turn your hips away from the target more, but it seems to do more harm. Thoughts?

If it's completely backwards, you have no leverage from your instep to make a forward athletic move toward the target.

Yep, there's lots of good stuff out there. Usually no harm in trying different things, see if it works or clicks, if not try something else. Just stay away from expert village and beware anything causing joint pain(new muscle soreness is typically ok just make sure it doesn't get worse) even it improved distance.

Yeah. I'm having some confusion on the back leg after bracing. I get much better hip rotation [I]after[I] planting if I just drag my rear foot through, but I don't get as much rotation if I lift up the rear leg between planting and throwing. Which one to use, and does it matter?

The rear foot should not really be dragged through or lifted up. The rear foot will evert as the heel gets pulled forward from the weight/pressure leaving while maintaining torque.
