--a video of my drive. I throw about 310 or so, sometimes further. What can I change to improve?

Here's a photo of my run up/x step as I'm about to plant my front foot.

Define followthrough. I don't exactly stop dead after I release, that is, that I do continue my arms path.

looks like you need to get your weight forward, then you wont have any choice but to follow through (or fall over). also, not so much in the video, but in the photo, right before you plant your foot, you should be fully reached back. try it in slomo and really exagerate the reachback, then plant, then throw all your weight over your plant foot, starting from your hips and up to your shoulders. thats how you get that whip, and one of these days ill figure it out myself :shock: ....

Edit: i know im my 'follow through' my arm ends up completely behind my back, and my back is about 45* to the target. not saying its right, but thats what follow though means to me.

i guess i should have gone more in depth. your follow through is not strong, which implies you aren't getting full acceleration into and through the rip.

where you are slowing down, the bigger throwers are hitting max arm speed (this is after the disc is out of the hand).

Hey, that's Flip City! I was just playing there tuesday. Sorry, I don't want to derail your critique thread, but I haven't seen any others on these forums playing in western Michigan. That course sure is a blast isn't it?

Keep your left arm tighter to your body, rotate around the disc, concentrate on pulling the disc through the hit.

other than that ummmmmm, think silky smooth thoughts and light footwork.


Watch more videos in the throw analysis page and see what I mean, look at Nikko Locostra, Brinster, Boro these people will get you on the track you want to be on.
