Default Rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic

This is from a few weeks ago and I'm trying "stuff". I'm not sure if it's much better or worse than my normal form.

I'm throwing about 75% and trying not to round (unsuccessful) and go slow (sorta successful).


I know there's a laundry list of atrocities here but I can probably only work on one thing at a time. Where should I start?




Edit: forgot to mention I added the pump forward a couple of weeks back but haven't had a chance to film it yet. Seems to have helped a bit.

I'd work on One Leg Drill. Your rear arm and leg are just going around your front side through the shot, instead of countering back behind you to fully release/deploy the arm/disc away from you. I'd suspect your throwing hand is finishing low due to grip/nose issue, and also hugging yourself some/rounding.

Note how Doss's arms are in equal and opposite "swan dive" and proud chest out, with the throwing hand finishing up high, and his rear knee/foot countered back over to the right tee side behind the front leg.




Highly recommend watch the two SC vids to help setup on One Leg, I have only seen a couple people ever setup properly. Record yourself setting up and compare it to me or post it. It will feel really weird being that upright on the front leg.

One leg drill has definitely felt very awkward. I'll watch those videos and try again

Found a vid of my normal form from before I even attempted not to round. Terrible rounding. I can't really tell if it's any better or worse than the first vid.


(Not 400. Guy taking the video was busting balls)

Your rear arm and leg look better in that vid.

I'm trying to do like five different things I think I'm supposed to in the first video. I think it ended up compounding my already existing issues.

I'm assuming I should still focus on the one leg drill, correct?

I spent some field time this weekend throwing off one leg.

I couldn't get a vid (will try soon) but it felt like I was using all arm. Obviously not correct.

Also getting very high throws.

Next field session, focus on using no arm at all. Seriously. Get upright on your front leg, turn back, slow down, and just let the elbow bend (allow it to bend, Don’t force it closed). Swinging something heavy should help.

You’ll eventually feel when you’re able to give the arm/disc some gas. Hint: it’s waaay later than you think. Your arm should be a lever, not a piston.

That makes sense. Not saying I'll be able to do it but I definitely felt the opposite.

More work

Really really hard to get myself to go slow. I think something heavy may be where I need to start.

I just keep going fast bcbit feels like I have no power.

Tossed a hammer around.

I guess it feels like I should start accelerating when my had is in the middle of my chest, not the right peck.

Y/N?

But it also feels pretty natural to go fast the entire time, so I'm still not feeling something I should be.
