Use the ">" and "<" buttons to step through frame by frame.

The power of the hips has to be accessible.

I keep being blown away by what power you can create with this hip shift. I've never thrown anywhere as strongly as I've been throwing in the last couple months. My x-step is almost zero mph.

As the hit shifts forward, nearly all my force is rotational.

That shot is my goal in terms of power and control.



So much of it has to do with that back foot being up on the toes. 1-step / stand-still / step - whatever, you gotta get that back foot up to change the angles to un-cork those hips.

"My x-step is almost zero mph." - Nice, would like to see an updated video of your form now. It's obvious most advanced/pro players use a very slow x-step with an incredible acceleration through the hit.

Tried to shoot some today.

That's about it. Add a little tiny bit of nose down and you get more turn and more distance when you increase the trajectory just 5' higher.

Yep, that looks like it'll work. My x-step is way slow now as well. It just makes sense. Now...I have seen Mr. McBeth do a sky anny shot in person and he does move pretty fast in the x-step for that type of shot.

Lead with your butt more. You are lifting your front foot/knee/leg too much which tilts you away from the target.

I agree, SW - I was taking heat off the disc because I had run outta field. More hip forward, more hammer forward - you add quite a bit of distance and start hitting the street.

If the damn volleyball people would leave the park to me, I could have gotten into it a bit harder.

I had a few that were near the last light post at 470' with not much more hip (more hammer) and a hyzer flip with a Daedalus that clipped a tree that I think might have been past 500'.

Hyzer's are so much easier to hold onto later for me.

It was warm today, everything felt really loose and like the angles were just clicking and I was throwing better than ever.

That dude's a beast. My biggest takeaway from some of these videos is how much core power you get from the abdominal muscles. Feels like funneling the power down a path. Super bizarre sensation today, where it felt like I was putting zero effort in and the timing was doing absolutely everything.
