Yes, the DF videos are in slo motion.
I’ve been watching your “Drill” playlist videos on YouTube. This one was a little eye opening:
I think I may have been way too aggressive with trying to sit or fall. This guy makes it seem like a really small fall. When you fall or sit down, does it feel you are moving around your trail side (like around your back) towards the target? And the weight immediately goes into your front foot heel?
I think I have been trying to do this movement from my front (as in chest). Which is causing me to get closer to the “ball” and over-extend early. It kind of seems natural to “roll your butt” towards the target after doing the movement I described before.
Here’s my video (in normal speed):
I know my side bend is inadequate, and I’m probably a little too far over my toes still. But I wanted to see what the “move around my back towards the target” looked like and get your thoughts.
The plant leg/hip alignment was trending better a bit after the start of the video.
In front of tee view, your head is waay too far out over your toes- inside swing drill. If you dropped off the frame to swing/throw your balance would stagger off toward the side of the tee.
I think you should try to keep your upper body more upright and preserve the side bend, but more Inside posture.
I think doing Inside Swing and DFD drills together in the same session is very valuable in general.
