A little better. Need to exaggerate the opposite motion, walk from back right to front left tee and throw some extreme left to right hyzers, and kick the rear foot behind front foot. Off arm looks fine. You do not want a firmer core, it needs to coil and uncoil.

Cheers! Hard to see on this short video but I shrugged in the forward swing which led to collapsed frame.

Kick rear foot behind as in ”bowling style” you mean?

Whenever I'm too anterior it's much more likely that I "spin out" with the rear foot like you are there and I can't "bounce" as easily into the plant stride. It's also really hard to get proper core engagement and tilt without a posterior chain loading & posture.



My current favorite short vid on the topic:


I'd do that a bit and try to really feel the difference between the anterior vs. posterior load. Bounce around a bit and shuffle like Sidewinder22 shows in his Battering Ram vid. The more comfortable you get with the posterior posture & load, the easier it gets to do the weight shift and onboard other mechanics.

Looks pigeon toed. Your rear femur/knee never really turns back away or circles/figure 8.

Well spotted! That issue seems to be a new one. Tighten one screw and another one loosens. Could be a side-effect of me trying to get the CoM to the left of my CoP in x-step and then pushing off right foot.

Here are three throws. Felt the circle the most in the first and last. I have always subconsiously circled in standstill but haven’t been able to transfer it to x-step. Finally it felt like it clicked a bit. Got the same feeling as in standstill. Thanks for that. Does it look better though?

Somewhat better with rear leg. Looks like your front foot/hip is spinning out before planting/crushing the can. Note how you finish over to the right instead of pivoting centered on front foot.

Thanks! You mean the unbalance in the first throw? Remained on front foot on the other two shots. Or did you mean something else?

I noticed too I spin out. I think partly because chronic pain in hip and lower back on the left side. Especially when I am not warmed up.

I’ll continue to focus on the circle/figure 8 motion with rear hip. What else, continue to work on crushing the can to reduce the striding-right issue?
