I had a foot injury that kept me out for a bit.
Was able to play a round Monday and felt great. Shot my best round yet at one of my local courses; the same score was rated a 1030 in a recent tournament, so I feel good about it!
I am continuing to make sure my weight is moving towards that final plant step. My right hip is dipping down a little more than before.
My distance is back up a little bit, and I was able to get out to the 425' mark with this throw:
I am going to work for a couple of sessions, hopefully this week, just on getting my left elbow tucked in. I thought it might slowly improve as I worked on more important things, but I need to go ahead and spend the dedicated time on it.
So the off arm is overcooked because I'm rotating around too far during the backswing? Does the motion look ok otherwise?Yeah, your rear arm is over cooked. You are too eager to rotate back and forth, need more patience. Your head turns about 180 degrees during the throw while most pros only turn the head about 90 degrees total - 45 back and forth. Try to swing your shoulder back more underneath your chin(or with chin) instead of turning your chin back away from your shoulder in backswing. Or try not to let your head turn further back than your rear foot angle.
No doubt! Simon is doing it much better than I. I'm sure it is one of many levers that Simon is using more effectively.From my perspective, your shoulders is too ahead of your arm.
English isn't my first language, so I apologize if this doesn't makes sense.
Your arm is still at a 90 degree angle (ish), head forward and you unravel from there and I would assume missing out on quite some power.
Simons arm is already getting the "out" with tons of leverage in that last hinge.
If you were to get the right hinge of the elbow in that shot, you would yeet it right.
Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, this is just what I see with my noob eyes.
I have done some with a small rubber mallet. I would like to try with a heavier hammer, but I don't really want to purchase one.Have you ever done hammer drills? Back when I worked on my form, I had the exact same issue as you, mine was much worse though. Hammer drills really taught me a thing a too and when that occasionally translated into my disc throw, I hit 450 without breaking a sweet. (Adding more speed and mass were a problem for the timing though).
