Default maxing out vasco's bh (standstill)

hi there!

im 47, playing for 1 year now several times a week and maxing out arround 280300 ft with a standstill bh. i would like to maximize my disctance and any feedback is highly appreciated: i already know im throwing with the wrong hand please tell me what else do you see im doing wrong, how to fix it and what i'm already doing right. primarily i want to improve my standstill form before i will ever consider incorporating an x-step. so this is my goal.

finally i managed to get me on camera and start this project. im planning on posting further videos in future to document my progress (hopefully). here is my first video with 3 throws incl slow-mo:



first thing i noticed by myself: kind of awkward to see me closing my eyes and facial expression in every throw. lol

Two biggest issues are your balance and are too tight in your arm in the backswing. Keep your head balanced, loosen up your arm/shoulder, and let your shoulder rotate under your chin back and forth. You burry your head into your shoulder which restricts your backswing and also causes you move/turn your head too far forward in the forward swing and not allow you to fully release your arm/disc to the target.

Also to simply point out, your back foot is pointed straight back and it is rotating in place. You have to load into the instep of your rear foot, and push forward off of it.

ok, thanks for the feedback. so i will work on positioning my head, pushing more with my rear foot and pivoting on my front heel. biggest issues so far, right?
@ sw: do you mean by balance just my head or the whole body?
also i wonder if technically seen this is still a standstill or a one-step throw.

Balance is the whole body stacking to your head dynamically. Put your body between the earth trying to crush your head.
