you're pulling your elbow across your chest and past your target while you still have the disc. You want your elbow pointed sorta towards the target when you stop it to force your elbow to chop.
Weight neutral made it easy (obviously too easy) to make a good strong kick with my back leg and not mess with my timing. When I started with weight way back like Climo shows I was having a lot of trouble timing my weight shift with the rest of my throw. I got all caught up in Climo's weight shift video where to my eyes he is spinning on his pivot foot much more than he is pushing toward his target. Of course in the end I had neutral weight to start AND I was just spinning so two strikes for me.
Somehow in all of this I have completely missed that a shoulder pause is supposed to initiate the elbow chop. I thought it was just supposed to be trying to stop the elbow, but the elbow pause needs to be the initiator.

basically, if your back foot is facing sideways at the start, rotate it somewhat forwards before you push off.
