Default BH Form help

Hello,

I have been playing this awesome game for amost 2 yeas now. This summer i decided i want to greatly improve my form. This is where i ended up. I still feel like my throw is pretty bad. Maximum distance i can reach is about 325 feet with a beat in tresspass.

Here are 3 of my throws i recorded douring some field work.

Biggest things I see:

1) A little late off the rear foot. The rear heel should be coming up as the front heel is coming down.

2) Hand not staying on the outside of the disc. Fixing this will probably give you the biggest power improvement.

But your offhand position is good along with some other good things you are doing.

Thanks for the pointers. Do you know any drills I could do to improve these things?

The biggest thing to me is that you're "shifting in front". Meaning that if you had a camera behind the teepad, once you plant your right foot then all of your body would swing around to the left side or "in front of your body"...there isn't any counterweight and leverage through the shot.

Going along with that, you really load back and lean back past your rear foot, rather than being centered and then getting to the front foot in balance.

This thread has some discussion to hopefully help that shift from behind concept click https://www.dgcoursereview.com/forum...d.php?t=127477

Also as for disc choice, I would focus on throwing discs that have a -1 or more turn to them a lot of the time when practicing. I just find if I try to release flat or with at least a bit of hyzer it's easier to try to get over the plant foot and stay closed. Right now some of those swing planes are pretty high and I'm not sure if you're throwing some intentional flex shots on some of them. Which is a useful shot but I just find that when working on form a more true flying or finicky disc is more useful.
