Analyze my throw?

Postby plshrk » Sun Sep 24, 2006 9:00 pm

Alright I was playing in a tournament today and had the gf video tape me on a couple holes throwing. Oh yeh it was my first tourny by the way and I got 2nd! WOO HOO. Just won some discs and clothing. Anyways tell me what Im doing wrong. I noticed that I am not reaching the disc back very far.

Don't be afraid to take your eyes off the hole, let your head rotate with the trunk of your body and you will inevitably reach back further. When I'm going for full distance, at my full reach my back faces the hole.

As far as putting, I would reccomend you bend your knees further and maintaining a stronger base--maybe experiment with a wider stance. Get your body into the shot more. Over the last month I went through a putting revolution when I started really bending my knees and getting better body movement.

Check out the vids and pics on this site in the "throw analysis" section--the driving form I try to emulate is Barry Schultz. And read all the articles of course.

You seem to have good form, focus more on acceleration into follow through. You seen to be fluid, and the drive you showed seems to be a controlled drive (70% power) video can't show snap very well either so im not able to critique on that either.

Yeh I really realized from the video that I need to bring the disc back farther and closer to my body. I really want to go out and practice today but from the 2 day tourny my arm is burnt. haha

remember that you accelerate through your throw too. you can start your pull nice n slow then rip up to top speed as you pull across ur chest. if you combine that with ur graceful form you will get more d. imho

Work on endurance, two days playing two rounds a day should not burn you up.

Play more golf, try to get as many rounds a day as you can even if it means glow sticks and sweat pants... play play play then go home and putt putt putt then go down the street to the park and practice practice practice... put a brick in the bottom of your golf bag, cross training is great too, jogging paintball, ping pong, tennis tennis tennis... just really get active!

Oh I am VERY active. Camping, Racquetball, Paint Ball, etc.. If I have a day off work. I am outside. Cardio 3 days a week and lift 4 days a week. My right shoulder I have just always had problems with because I used to play a lot of racquetball.
