In the spring I was playing a lot and I was throwing very well, no OAT, consistent and easy/powerful throw. I ended the spring winning two Am1 tourneys and really felt I *got it*. Since then work has been very busy and I have only been able to play once a month or less.
Next weekend is a big tournament, so I have been going to the field to practice and try to get back my old throw. To my disappointment, my throw has taken 10 steps backwords since the spring. I have been going to the field every day to work on drills and get my throw back...
Anyway to the question... as I was practicing in the field. I decided to do some throws with my *eyes looking at the disc as it passed my chest*. My goal was to see/make sure my pull was close to my chest. The result was instant power, tons of snap. The sensation was my old great throw, I was thrilled!
Here is the current problem:
If I *don't* keep my head looking straight (looking 90 degrees to the left of where I want to throw), my timing/power/snap disappears.
If I *do* keep my head looking straight, I throw beautifully, it's just my aim is inconsistent.
I believe if I keep my head looking straight, it makes my arm pull into my body before my whole body accelerates to the hit (probably the masterbeato stuff).
I also believe, if I consciously have to think about keep my eyes/focus on keeping my head looking straight, it is at the expence of mentally concentrating on aiming.
Geeze, does that make sense
Anyway, I'm hoping some tech gurious can speculate why keeping my head straight gives my timeing and power back. And maybe suggest a drill or suggestion to work through this?
Sorry for the long post, thanks in advance to anyone that helps!
