the early stages of this drill are to work with just upper body rotation.
rotate away, push off with your left foot and rotate forwards. if you are relaxed you should feel when you want to start tugging hard. you'll be surprised how faced up to the target you will be and how the disc actually leaves from in front of your body.
I am a RHBH thrower and whenever I play, even when a using full runup and X-Step and focusing on pushing with my legs, the only thing that is consistently and very sore on my body the next day is my right pectoral muscle. It feels like it did when I was lifting heavy weights in the gym on a regular basis...the muscle is torn (in a good way) and is sore.
The weeks spent throwing from a standstill and focusing on acceleration are making me wince in pain already. Does anyone else get sore in the right pectoral region when they play/throw? Is this normal? (I'm guessing no).
