This is potentially setting you up for a ton of unlearning bad habits. I'd set you up with neutral putters and have you throwing slight hyzers.

To flex an OS disc to 300', you're introducing the wrong posture.


One-step movement.


To put this is perspective, I'm 45 - a few years older than Joe. I also parked the first hole that he throws. And on a wide open hole I was just as far down the fairway as he was. I'm not bragging, but I would caution against saying "I'm this old, probably done throwing far..." - If you continue to work on flexibility, good form and overall body strength, I believe that most guys can throw high power shots consistently.

First, the importance of hip power vs. Arm power. I will post another on my perception of the weight transfer point and the relationship of the hip, torso and shoulders.

I see what you did there. You’re trying to inject some satire into this thread. It worked, it certainly was good for a laugh.

Yeah, strange how much power one can generate just from their hips. Amazing!

Question about the brace:
When the brace leg juices the throw, is it a "bump" or a press and hold?
In other words, imagine that there's a pressure sensor under my brace foot. Should the pressure spike as I shift weight to it and then decrease sharply before the upper body comes through the throw, or does the pressure rise as I settle onto the front foot and stay high until I've completed my follow through? Or something else?

When I think about whipping my tennis forehand, the pressure is more of a bump in my lead foot. On my disc golf backhand, should I be going for the same bump and whip feeling as the tennis forehand, but the feeling is that I'm swinging lefty and hitting a ball that's slightly behind me (due to use of lead shoulder instead of trailing shoulder)? I know that the throw would probably correlate better to my tennis backhand, but I've never felt the ground up power quite as well on my tennis backhand.

There’s that satire again.

I didn’t see any power, that’s why it’s so funny, lol.

IMHO, The person in this video is opening the hips way too soon!



YMMV

Whelp, I have been scouring videos, read hundreds of pages of this forum over the past month, and...

this is the one that did it for me. I'm sure its a culmination of a lot of info, but thanks man! Fundamental shift in the entire feel of what I am doing!

No sooner than Calvin Heimburg. Do you think he opens his hips too early?
