Clearing the hip is where your hip strikes forward, just like your foot does when it pivots at the release point.
Notice when you watch Timmy Gill's foot (for example) it strikes forward, rather then just slowly rotating to the forward position.
Clearing or opening up your hips
Hips, shoulders, arm. Hips start it all. You want to make sure that you don't max out your shoulder rotation before your hips are cleared.
I thought I saw somewhere something about kicking your back foot out. When does that happen? Is it at the same time you're hitting max acceleration (is that the "power zone") where the disc has passed the right pec?Blake_T wrote:hitting a baseball is weight back.Hips, shoulders, arm.

the hips don't clear until you are going through the power zone.
Don't worry, that's what I'm going to do. I just wanted to get a few fun rounds in before I get to the serious technique repair so I thought I'd ask some questions in advance.Blake_T wrote:seriously... learn with stationary form and work backwards.
Thanks for sharing!
Could we be the lucky recipients of another video or 2 of your throwing form from different angles?
I enjoy what appears to be a very efficient and Blake approved throwing motion and would like to emulate it closely
Perhaps a little video of somone doing this might help out. It would be nice to see each step of the process of building your throw from the end backwards.Blake_T wrote:2. pace back your footwork from the end of the throw. hence, start at the throw and work backwards... this way every step cnotributes to your finish position. it's easy to have footwork that prevents good finish positioning.... if you work backwards the footwork you develop will have to work with good finish positioning because it was built upon establishing that finish position.
