fist follow through

Postby Toney » Thu Oct 12, 2006 10:36 pm

What can be said about the angle that the wrist should follow the instant the disc leaves it in a drive? If my disc is angled down 10 degrees for a throw with hyzer, it seems that the wrist should continue along this line, that is up 10 degrees until it can no longer do this because of the arm socket joint.

Now, if I want to throw anhyzer, it seems that the fist should travel down immediately after the throw along the same line as the disc.

Similarly, a flat throw with a roc would cause the wrist to travel parallel to the ground immediately after the throw before it is forced a bit downward as it swings around my body.

the angle of the wrist should stay constant the entire time.

the forearm and shoulder orientations are what should vary.

Also, it is possible to maintain your arms plane of orientation (unless you're throwing with ungodly hyzer, and even then it can be done but flexability in hips and knees is needed) you need to have a clean plant foot though, that is on the ball of your foot so you will continue rotating, otherwise one's shoulder will be injured very quickly.
