Default Sidearm form help

Hi,

here's my RHFH form, I've always thrown from a stand still with a small step forward (last two throws) but I tried to add a run-up today(first two throws). I guess I get a bit more extension with a run up, as well as I get a bit lower with more compression on the ground when I run up, but I'm not getting a lot more distance (yet). I'd like to be able to get closer to 400' max distance with a run up. I max out at around 320-340' now.
Any drills/tips to work on this winter? Appreciate any input.

What disc are you throwing? Looks like you are throwing with some anhyzer as well.

more FH power is generated by twisting/rotating hips more in the "run up"

some people do an x-step, but that was throwing off my aim, so I do a little hop step and that seems to work

175g star teebirds this video. Might need to adjust my angles a bit. Might also be some OAT or wrist roll, but I've never really had issues with that. I'll look into it.

Turn your rear foot backward past perpendicular slightly and plant the front foot slightly open. Turn more centered and stacked back and forth braced inside your posture.

Behind the tee, you can see how your body is drifting right and your rear foot comes around, while I move my body forward and rotate completely centered and stacked.

Side tee, you can see during the stride that your rear knee and shoulder are already forward with the hip, while I'm leading my hips forward as my shoulder is still stacked over the rear knee and foot. The finish pic shows I've mirrored it on the front side and braced my front knee and hip with the shoulder now stacked over the front foot. Your body is starting forward and finishing forward over the top so it's not mirrored and your swing is not centered between your feet and inside your posture.

Is that your main driver, or what else do you use? My only ace was FH with an Echo Star TeeBird but I haven't found a TeeBird that will put up with a bit of OAT.

Thanks Sidewinder, appreciate the grid you made. I guess the Fencing vids and weight shift from Shawn Clement is as relevant for side arm as for backhand?

I use thunderbird, firebird and destroyers mainly. Slight hyzer release for the more beat in. Teebirds are just for practise but they might return to my bag in the future.

Any improvement from OP?, I've been throwing more understable discs on hyzer and my distance and accuracy have improved this year. How's the form.

I'm hitting 350 pretty consistently with my understable destroyers, my longest throws maxes out at 375-380 with a full hyzer flip flight.

Yeah, looks smoother and much better front side bracing. Your swing is still really short, hardly any backswing/hip/shoulder turning back because of the rear foot facing forward. So you are accelerating the disc forward well before you plant the front foot. Rear foot should be more sideways like a pitcher.
