Too much snow on the ground to actually throw

Looking better.

You are tipped over and pulling the door frame into the plant with your shoulders instead of your hips/butt.

Will "hershysering" with the hips instead of the shoulder help keep my front leg from bending so much when I brace onto it? Or is it really that much of a problem?

Compact shift - perpetual motion drills back and forth over. More breaking on front foot - reverse back away from hit.

So my front leg should initially bend a bit but then straighten out as the right hip clears right.

And the mechanisms that drive this are ???

Not sure I'm following. How do you reverse direction quickly back and forth?

You flex your knees a bit and then push back into the ground.
But how much flex is too much? It looks like my right thigh almost bends 130 relative to my calf and in the GIF Paige is much straigher, maybe 150 to 160?

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I'd say that you should focus on the angle between torso and thigh instead of calf to thigh. Watch any video of a pro throwing. You'll see that the angle thigh-calf differs quite a bit. The angle torso-thigh however is very close to 90 degrees first in the back leg during backswing, then when compressing for brace on the front leg while swinging through. You might have to watch it from different angles. Can be a bit hard to see in a side view.
The calf-thigh angle is more individual and has more to do with where your balance is and how you are built. Same concept as in weightlifting deadlifts and/or squats.

A good way your balance through the swing:
Put your middle fingers on your knee (right on right, left on left). Now stride laterally. Find your athletic balance (relaxed and powerful). You shouldn't fall over. Nobody should be able to push you over easily from any side of the body.
That's how much you should lean over, how deep your hips need to be, how to feel a better connection legs to torso and shoulders, it makes it harder to tilt, easier to feel the balance and the weight shift. It's a pretty good drill for balance in my opinion. If you want to try the whole throwing motion then just let the front fingers leave the front knee in backswing and let the back fingers leave the back leg when you brace and throw.
