Is it partially about this? https://www.dgcoursereview.com/forum...d.php?t=134329

Not that there would not be other things as well, but I think I try to build the momentum by spinning the hips, what is partially creating the problem you described.

Another question, are there specific drills for me that include throwing disc (or some other object)? I have done these "indoors" drills (door frame, swivel stairs etc.) but keep having difficulties incorporating them to the actual throwing motion.

OK, I had a session, where I tried to pay the attention to not lean back and stay at the front of my rear foot during the backswing. Also, I did try out the pendulum backswing. Here are the three last shot of the session:



OK, there are certainly a million things to work on, including the lousy plant of the front foot, bent elbow during the pendulum swing etc., etc., but now I think I sort of understood the concept of the posture here. I could kinda feel the potential energy of the spring building in the rear hip area in pendulum backswing and then releasing that energy during the front foot plant and the throw itself.

The shots themselves were pretty much all around the soccer field, but I will keep working on that.

I don't think there's anything wrong with your brace. The problem is your rear leg is pushing too late and pushing you over the front leg or thru it. Need to fall/squat more into rear leg leaving the rear foot before or as you are landing on front foot.

So it is a timing issue? The pressure is shifting from the rear foot onto the front too late?

I did some one-leg drills on the field. A couple of shots from both side and back.





What do you think? The follow-through felt somewhat violent on the shoulder. Most of the shots left on quite a steep hyzer angle.

You are taking it too literal. There should be a slight shift or walk back to the right tee side in the backswing. Note how your body moves toward the left tee side in backswing while I'm moving back toward the right tee side. Your weight pressure is staying on your rear toes and increasing, while I'm moving the pressure and rolling back to heel/targetward and then back to toes.

Pretty clear now that you say it.

It was too windy to throw discs today, so I bought a hammer. However, it was too windy for my tripod to stand, but serious hammer throwing footage available on my channel soon, stay tuned.

OK, a couple of hammer throwing sessions behind. Here is video footage from the most recent:



I think this is helping me to envision what the throwing motion is like, though these first sessions did not do miracles on my actual disc throws, but that's expected. The timing with the plant seems to be late no matter what I am throwing, though I did not even try to pay that much attention to that with the hammer throws.

I might have overdone the playing and drills a bit, I guess throwing a heavier object suddenly will take some time for the body to adapt. I threw the hammer maybe fifteen times on Saturday, went to play an eighteen hole round on Sunday, threw twenty hammer throws on Monday and played a twenty hole round on top of that. Now the right deltoid and part of trapezius or whatever are a bit sore.

I even did the elephant walk with the hammer, but on the retrospective, it might not have been the best idea. The momentum of the hammer might be too much for the rotator cuff (I do not really know, please advice if you know).

You are only using your arm and shoulder muscles and trying to throw too hard. Should just be an effortless toss, distance is not the goal here, just feel the release. Your shoulders/torso aren't turning to move the arm/hammer unit using the body/core/shift.

You need to drop your right shoulder down under left shoulder, so chest is downward more over top the hammer and spine flexed and the upper arm hangs from the shoulder extended and can swing freely with the body out of the way, and arm/hammer only moves if your body moves. The arm/shoulder muscles only need to be used to maintain structure/power pocket with elbow out/leading. Your elbow is fully extended before it gets to your front foot, need to keep the elbow bent/leading wrist/hammer and shoulder leading everything forward over foot like battering ramming a door with the back of your shoulder.
