Default Form check

I've been playing a little more than a year and it's definitely time to work on that form! Here's a low quality video facing my target. Sorry I couldn't get more angles but the weather outside was not ideal.

Your head came up a little early, and on it's own... The left shoulder ideally would use the momentum of the swing to push the head back around towards the target. You're lined up well. Trust the line up and close your eyes at practice if needed. (outside practice, of course)

To be fair though, you are throwing hard indoors, so it may just be that you're making sure you don't put a disc sized hole in the drywall

Looks good though... fluid, and not too tense

First I always recommend shoes. Secondly you are drifting leftward instead of wiping your butt down the wall/target line. Thirdly as mentioned ^ your head is looking at the target rather early, I look at my disc and hand the entire swing to make sure they are doing what they are supposed to do and leave the majority of the aiming to the body/stance.

Default Back at it

Well I've been out of the game for a while. To get back in I thought I'd start with some simple one-step throws. First four are from the side, last three are down the line. Thanks guys!

Not getting totally balanced on your front leg/foot. Your front foot is spinning out during the throw as your balance is off. If you rotate upright around a braced front leg, your momentum should carry your finish over around to the left side(lefty) of the tee instead of the right. Looks like you are starting your backswing with a lean back - head/shoulder into wall Hershyzer 2.

Note how Simon walks out the finish to the right side(righty).

Good stuff Sidewinder, thank you. But I'm afraid I know something you do not know: I am not left handed! Haha didn't even notice the camera was in mirror mode. Here's some one legs. Sorry the camera angles suck. Left the tripod at home.

Weird.

1. You are swinging/pulling downward and setup over the top. Note how I'm getting ready to swing/pull through my center of mass, and turned further back with center of mass slightly behind front foot. It is ok for some of your weight to go to the rear foot, but it should feel like it mostly stays forward. Play around in Door Frame Drills especially part 2 where I talk about loading down into the arm.


2. Your elbow is extending on the right side of your toes instead of the left side/closed. This effectively shortens your extension and end up pull/hooking hyzer to the right(where your power release is being aimed). Your disc and mass are basically on the same side of lever or squished together instead of being on opposite sides. Note how my elbow is left of the toes so my extension is widening the arc outward away from my body and also note how my rear foot is further to the right, so I've cleared out more space for my swing and have more countering the disc on the opposite side, if you image a lever between the disc and butt/rear foot, my lever is longer and increases the effectiveness of the counterweight.
