Your foot/feet need to evert/roll/bank inward shifting back and forth, so the knee/s move/swivel ahead underneath to catch the hips/shoulders/spine/head.
You turn back too early, too far on rear leg, and your rear foot has no inward roll/eversion, so your spine tips over.
So is it a matter of getting my hips more targetward for the throw out? The trail elbow can be used as a queue rather than an impediment?
Clearly the further my hips go targetward and the more I bend my plant leg, the more the left leg bends and banks. Not sure if that's just positional manipulation rather than good form though.
Gravity pushes you down. You can't push yourself down. If you move/shift laterally correctly(Ride the Bull), the trailside should start dropping as your center moves further away from the foot. If you move/shift incorrectly by extending the rear leg, you will tip the trailside over top the frontside.I was just watching the PCS open, and it seems like Paul's leg bends and banks because his hips have rotated rather than moved linearly targetward. That leads me to think my previous message is not the correct thinking.
He seems to be pushing his left side downwards into the plant more than I. I think the only way to accomplish that would be to get my right hip lower in the backswing.
I'm still trying to translate this into feel. Moving in a mirror to match what looks right to how it feels seems to have been a little helpful with this lesson.
Additionally, I finally transitioned from understanding the posture discussion to feeling that power and lag in my back and shoulders. I thought Brychanus was being dramatic, but it is a pretty powerful feeling. Now that I'm doing that, leading with my butt makes a lot more sense.
I'm willing to be opinionated and say learning to improve Ride the Bull pays long run dividends, though you do need to learn to do it right.So you're saying that I should spend training ride the bull rather than something else?
I keep doing the swivel chair, but it doesn't seem that helpful to my throw right now because I'm on a backwardsish plane instead of having everything in front of me as with the chair.
I'm somewhere in a grey zone between hitting the brakes and swiveling in the chair; I'm pushing myself sideways with my toes/instep instead of around.
I'll try these things.I went back and read the recent posts. I'm wondering what will happen if you try to take what you are working on in the swivel chair drill, then try to throw with extreme stagger/diagonal shift. Need to get you comfortable with your body shifting toward the target coiling back into the rear side.
Heavy swings can help your legs and posture and weight shift learn and get more out of your head <3
