Move your weight back diagonally toward the right in the backswing to the left foot like walking backwards and parallel to target, then walk back forward onto plant and swing. There should be a little lateral weightshift of an inch or two, just like walking normally. That should allow you to turn much further back behind the plant leg.

A little more step back onto the left leg. Some of these felt pretty good.

Yeah you are actually stepping onto the left leg and completely weighting it...your right heel is lifting off the ground. Your head is aligned with your left leg and then you continue to push over the top of your right hip off your left leg.

You can see this from your head being tilted forward/overtop as you are landing on the right leg, rather than lagging. Your rear toes are also weighted too long/late because you are using the left leg to push your weight forward and overtop.

Essentially, you are not doing one leg drill and aligning your spine and head on the front leg. You are doing a standstill throw and pushing over the top.

Yea, these kinda felt like my normal stand still more than the one leg drill.

Can you describe this more? Not sure I completely understand where I am pushing over the top of my right hip. Thanks for the feedback! It is always appreciated!

So you can see you are set up on the rear leg, not on the front leg.

This is why your back leg spins out, and you can also see your torso tips "over top" of your right hip, rather than standing upright on it as if you walked forward onto your right leg.

Basically the rear foot/instep should move your weight/spine/balance laterally to the front leg...so it should slide you sideways and move closer to the target. Then once you land on the front leg, you can start to rotate. Instead you are rotating on the axis of the rear leg, so the rear foot is spinning in place and the heel actually moves farther away from the target.

I was just playing with some timing and balance stuff inside and I think I felt how to change this. It is a pretty fundamental change though, and I think it's going to feel weird at first.

Yeah, your backswing and spine tilt is also telegraphing your arm swing plane and throw downward into the ground with a "high" reachback. If you were in dynamic balance to the front leg you have a "low" or level reachback with the spine tilted back / upright to front leg.

Any better? Still feel like I'm tipping over.

The third throw went pretty far.
