Run up relating to weight forward.

Postby cschwab » Tue Aug 01, 2006 8:29 pm

I have been trying to change my style to get a more weight forward throw. When watching myself drive I've noticed that I bring my shoulders back during the 1st step of the x-step rather than letting my cross step rotate them. While going through my motion slowly I noticed that it seemed to cause a more weight forward finish by waiting a step to bring my shoulders back. I haven't gotten to test this in the field yet, but do you think this will produce the results I am looking for?

it's more about HOW you reach back then when you reach back.

it's doubtful that changing the when part will have any effect unless your timing was mad borked beforehand.

depends on the type of throw. generally you want one that will prime your shoulders to fire on the plane.

hyzer throw = sweep in from underneath.

anhyzer throw = drop in from above.

Sounds like a shoulder fold/dip/right shoulder lower than left would be a good thing to focus on. I definitely used to do the opposite of a shoulder dip, and recently have been able ot make the majority of my throws without my weight being back and my shoulders doing the wrong thing. From my experience of trying to correct that matter, I realized that all the small things are related. The way you reach back, the way you step, if your twist your arm clockwise or counterclockwise at different parts of the throw.
Today seems like a good day to toss a disc or two.
The one for hyzer-flipping, turning over right on que.
I try to throw just like that, but sometimes I really suck.
Some say I need to get the axing, chalk it up to bad luck.
