Then I have been told to keep the disc level... and keeping the disc level without throwing it in the backswing requires keeping the arm externally rotated and palm pointing up to the sky. That's probably where it has crept to my actual throwing form from. Also, one of my friends noted that my wrist does something strange at the end of the motion when I was wondering out loud my bad throws at the course.
Backswing should read follow-through - but you probably figured that out.

Any better now?



That's funny you talk during the whole video about that correct movement, but I missed it nonetheless. I have always thrown standstill so that I move the weight to the rear foot with the disc, so it is hard to change

I did quite a bunch of upshots to 150' trying to do the weightshift and balancing as I understood it should be done. At least it felt better. Here is one.

Kind of looks better. Your stance is open. Try doing the elephant walk.

Should my feet be parallel to each other?

Stagger rear toes about inline to front heel. See Battering Ram.

Yeah, I was thinking about my stance being open and if that means that the feet angle is too open, right?

So, should my feet be like | | instead of slightly \ | or even \ / ? If that makes any sense to you.

Btw, do you think my approach to start from standstill throws to very casual distance is reasonable?

I really had got the whole timing and weightshifting wrong. I thought that (in standstill throws) the weight would go alongside the disc; in the backswing the weight would be on the rear foot and transfer onto the front food when throwing. But it is somewhat hard at least now in the standstills, when I should do the backswing and weightshift at the same time and still hold the balance/brace on the front foot when throwing. What I mean is that it feels like a long time to be on my front foot.

Yeah, I can see Seppo has an open stance here, but of course he is not doing actual driving drills

Seppo's stance is more closed than yours, his is just like I described with rear toes inline front heel.

Try walking perpendicular to target and swinging. This should help make your leg action and weightshift more natural.

OK. Even at the risk of sounding stupid, but I want to make sure:

An open stance:


Not an open stance:

I took a couple of days break, because I played and did fieldwork quite much in the last week.

Today I did one session. Mainly shot to 100' - 200'. I briefly did the elephant walk drill, but next time with more thought and time.

Nothing drastically changed, here are two clips anyway:





I can't remember how those shots ended up, but the process is same nonetheless. Short upshots went better at least resultwise, but "longer" to 200'-250' leaked here and there. Those two videos do not reveal it completely, but I tend to do nose-up release every time.
