I like the commentary.

1. You could probably work on your grip some, looks weak to me. Try getting a feel of controlling the disc with a 2 finger grip.

2. You are starting in too wide a stance. That causes you to fold your upper body over the rear hip/leg in the backswing instead of shifting your weight upright back and forth. Think about how a pitcher/batter starts with feet closer together and then strides forward.



3. You are sissoring your upper arm/elbow back and forth and up and down a lot relative to your shoulder. You want to keep the upper arm pendulum more quiet and swing the lower arm/disc pendulum more from the elbow and maintain plane.

Also your focus should be at your target. It΄s very hard to get your body to comply if you don΄t even take a glance where you are throwing.

Thank you! Cant wait to get to the field!

Just sitting here with a disc in my hand I'm still having trouble with the grip. Particularly disc orientation. My hands are small but fat. So it feels like my wrist has to be super strained in order to maintain the parallel line with my forearm. Also kinda curious as to how much of the base of my thumb needs to be on top of the flight plate.

Shouldn't be straining. Might need to change how the disc is angled in your hand/fingers more slanted. Hold the disc out of the palm like Robbie shows with just the two fingers, no need for the base of the thumb to be pressured on the disc - mine isn't.

Very quickly before work this morning I threw a few throws. Much better. Wasn't powering up and threw my buzzz maybe 250'! 2 finger grip feels good better in my tiny hand! Lol thanks for the help and I will keep coming back to the well for suggestions to improve!

Default Critique my form?

I'd really appreciate if you guys would critique my form. I went from driving 250' in June to about 350' regularly now with your help! Almost broke 400' once and I'm looking to do that regularly by the end of fall! Any tips appreciated.
3 finger grip. Just trying to smash them flat in the vid. Thanks!

You are leaning/tipping your upper body back and forth outside your posture/feet instead of rotating inside your posture/feet. You also keep everything tight and static setting up and looking down. Loosen up and let your arm swing and shuffle your feet a little to setup more dynamic and free flowing.

Shuffle and let my arm swing prethrow, create a preshow routine, keep my weight centered. Is it almost like you approach, brace, and spin in place with weight shift?

Shift weight forward balanced to front foot, then swing forward. Rotation will happen.
