Here's a cool angle. Delay the pull until the weight gets forward.

Or you could think about it that your "reachback" happens when you shift forward from behind leaving the shoulder/arm/disc lagging behind like door frame drills.

Think of it like a spring, it will compress inward as you start to rotate and lag the arm/disc and then extend out to the release when you stop rotating. Then followthru. The tighter the spring, the more force it can load and unload. You want to resist the compression to load the spring.

Awesome, thank you. I don't know why that GIF gave me the "aha" moment, but it did. Thanks for your constant feedback SW!

Should this "from behind" shift feel almost like you are falling backwards?

More like you are just about to sit down. ‘Riding the bull.’ But that sensation goes away once your muscle memory realizes it is part of a larger motion.

imo it is a very natural feeling and 100% you have done it at some point in time.

I think the elephant walk drill is a much better way to get a feel for shifting from behind. The problem with thinking about “falling backwards” is that it’s a pretty foreign motion. We don’t spend our days just falling backwards and catching ourselves. We do spend our days walking around.

If you just pick up something heavy like a dumbbell, kettlebell, etc, and just go toss it backhand. Just like tossing a horseshoe but backhand- You’re brain will naturally shift from behind to help you do this.

You can also just hop/shuffle laterally like your trying to stay in front of someone you are guarding in basketball - that type of shift is much more natural than falling backwards.

Default baseball swing

This guy wants the front leg loaded but the rotation axis behind it, I think.
