Default Plant leg straighten/lock out

I saw the video of Simon learning to throw lefty. One thing he points out is that his plant leg straightened out on his RHBH. Drew Gibson even hyperextend his plant leg.

Is this better for a brace and how does one achieve this?

I don't recommend locking out into hyperextension. It's a centripetal pump of the swing.

Do I try to push my leading hips back or do I try to push my plant leg into the ground?
When I push my leading hips away. My legs straighten out

How do you push the hip without pushing into the ground?

More about the feel on what I should do. Focus on pushing into the ground with my feet or pushing my hips back. These are totally different feel for me

Then you must not be pushing into the ground in the correct direction.

I thought this did... parallel force to the swing.

The other explanation might be you are trying to throw on a flat swing plane that doesn't exist.

I think it would help to swing something really heavy and feel how you must counter the swing action all the way around.

I think my hips are too tight from years of sitting all day for work. Starting some hips exercises to see if it helps.
