You can either think of moving the left foot to the right side of the tee pad or the right foot to the left side of the tee pad.

I think of the left foot moving to the right as easier to do in an x-step, but in a 1-step move you only move the right foot.

Its easier to say just move the right foot leftward. also keep in mind its a drill to feel where the leverage happens and where the momentum can be resisted to redirect it forward.

Thanks for the clarification HUB!

...unlocked some of that sauce tonight!

Outdrove a few holes I dont even get close to usually!! Exaggerating the rightward / kick the can really helped, although it felt like I was going wayyyy right I was infact only straight..

I think exaggerated movements are great to find the middle ground. Thats what Im finding the more things I understand/unlock

So this pelvic tilt is a crazy feeling. I’m not sure im doing it right as it feels kind of tense around my butt haha but all the movements feel more “springy”.

Am I meant to maintain this throughout the x step or just on the stride into plant?

Springy like running or horse gallop.

But this tilt is started before the drive at set up and then remains throughout to after the hit?

Not following the question.

Tilt should shift moving from one leg to the other leg.

Is that what you're getting at?

Also this weird video to show it in motion. Sorry, I haven't been able to figure out how to embed a gif on my phone! https://youtu.be/xmXFIP0EoCQ

Just trying to get this thing right before I go practice the wrong thing.

My bad, I was referring to pelvic tilt. Feels like I have to engage many muscles just to get the right feeling, looked up many videos on the correct way.

I think I figured it out tonight anyway, I couldnt manage to keep the pelvic tilt throughout the sequence but I just focused on a more upright / not leaning/swaying posture and the disc was popping out wayyy faster and cleaner.

Ive been playing around with the pendulum again after noticing that my posture was the reason that the pendulum wasnt working (swing would be outside-inside-inside) that great before. And wow! I was blown away that when I stood more upright throughout the drive and now moving straight/slightly right down the teepad - I got that great heavy leverage feeling again and the timing just worked first go. This was in steel toes too so Im excited to get out to the field in some proper footwear.



Still spinning too much instead of getting the shoulder forward and leveraging the disc More - but it will get fixed soon as my footwork/posture becomes better engrained.

Try pumping so disc and rear foot are as far away from each other as possible.

Try doing standstills (like 60% effort) with your front foot pointed like 30 degrees towards target. Like a Brodie Smith form throw pretty much. Turn your rear foot back enough so your hips have room to turn back and then everything moves together targetward and still turned back until the front foot plants. The rotation just has to happen on its own. That should help feel that forward leverage instead of spinning because if you are trying to spin you will be releasing too far right. If you are releasing right, adjust by changing your rear foot stance position until you are releasing straight. The front shoulder will also needs to stay closed long enough and I struggle big time with that one still. It's too hard to fix by thinking about just delaying them, I think the thought has to be targetward ejection and the shoulders will do what they are supposed to.
