Thanks, guys. I'll be sure and check the plant step. I'd had it a great length for a few weeks, wasn't causing me any pain to throw and I was getting good distance. Maybe I slipped backwards into my old step. Will check holding it longer, too (into right pec).
As for hips & stuff. They're doing great, so I'm going 100% until I have a problem. Yeah, I'm still using Dan's above the seam grip.
I'm playing later, so gives me something to work on
