This is fundamental and if you learn compensating methods you'll need to unlearn them before learning a pure form. Wish I had known that earlier.
This is an interesting comment. Is it directed to the OP or in general? The reason I ask is that when watching a lot of videos I tend to see this. For instance in that Discraft long distance video some throw that way but I thought it was because they were doing more s-curvish throws. Even in the Cale Leviska video he plants left of his general x-step.
In general. Standing in front of a mirror you can easily see what moving the plant step landing area does to your posture. Check out Robbie Bratten for an extreme example of planting way left for an anny release in the Discraft distance throw clinic.
It is possible to contort oneself a lot but you lose power to my knowledge by getting the muscles all knotted up and risk spasms, tears etc. There's a reason why in the articles on the main page presenting correctly is favored. You can learn to compensate almost anything but you'll pick up a lot of inefficient and sometimes detrimental habits that are hard to break once your form improves. Think of hanging from a tree upside down holding a horizontal limb with one hand and the opposite leg and try throwing far from there. That's essentially what happens when you throw with legs and torso tilted for an anny and arm swinging on a hyzer plane.
In the video the guys do different things. Some hyzer flip some release anny some tilt legs and body for an anny and release hyzer that flips to anny because of the speed they generate on discs that are designed to fly slower and not be that high speed stable.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.
