Not sure I'm understanding what you are saying or the difference in instruction. I can have my fingers on knees in different configurations and people have different arm lengths. Not everyone knows how to squat properly and I think that might imply bending from the knees too much instead of the hips and also the knees should be doing opposite things in the swing, one knee bending while the other knee is extending. I often see people setup with their knees too bent and so then plantar flexion does nothing to the pelvis or swing. If you just stand upright and relaxed with the glutes engaged, then plantar flexion really moves the pelvis.

If you swing something heavy enough people rarely screw up the motion. What people often do is try to swing the hammer like they try to throw the disc, instead of the opposite and swinging the disc like you swing a hammer.

If you are balanced and athletic (weight on the ball of the feet and slightly squatting) with the top of your fingers on your knees then your body will be in pretty good stance (nose over toes, butt back, calf pointing straight-ish up). Longer arms often means longer thighs. It's not bullet proof for sure, but our bodies tend to be somewhat balanced in it's configuration so it will work for most people. The previous gif you posted that I referred to in the last post shows how the knees can be both bending and extending but still keep the same length to the shoulders. When one leg is straight it's also leaning away from the CoG more. The angle shifts but the distance knee to shoulder doesn't change much. If it does then one is off balance and perhaps sliding into brace.



Throwing the disc like a hammer and throwing heavy weights is key to a good form.

I think if you swing something heavy this balance and counter balance and clockwise windmill energy flow of the swing will feel much more obvious although maybe weird at first.

Need to aggressively PUMP the swing up/forward, which should start tilting your head/spine back away and rear side down and forward underneath into x-step in one fluid motion.
https://www.dgcoursereview.com/forum...d.php?t=138601

When you try to take a step with something heavy, you need to really pump it to help carry you into the next step or allow you to take the next step and that step needs to be in sync to the levitation at the top of the pump.

In last frame, you would be pulling the door frame with your upper body, instead of door frame pulling your upper body back away as the hips/butt lead forward.

For the hammer/heavy item swing drill to be effective, I have to actually throw it don't I?

Careful with the wrist at the end, don't try to snap it. I would lock the wrist and let the arm roll to release it.

Your rear knee/hip are extended/locked out and pushing your upper body over, instead of pushing or pulling upper body further back with rear knee/hip flexed underneath with ankle extended. If your front leg gave out all the sudden you would fall over on your head. If Eagle's front leg gave out he would fall on his butt, head would fall back slightly.

Video some door frame drill.

Seems like I'm locking my rear leg and using that to "lock" into the ground and leverage my tilting weight into the doorframe.
