Before my ankle would twist or feel like I am jamming it but my lower body actually felt smooth. I was having trouble of early releases and throwing things anhzyer. I think the early release was from not gripping it hard enough during the acceleartion and the anhyzer is from not bringing the disc close enough to my body? Could this cause it? I feel like when I get it close I get a good throw on the line I intended. The only thing that is throwing a red flag at me now is on my plant leg the side of my leg that is facing the target is sore? Mostly the quad area. Is this normal? I thought it was since I am using more of these muscles for the first time in pivoting the hips. But maybe it means something else that others can pick up on. Thanks for all the help. I will be reading these things a bunch, hitting the practice field big time and hopefully next week after some practice I will post a video so I can get more feedback.

getting too far off the body on an anhyzer will weaken the throw by a drastic amount.
early release is generally caused by 1 of 3 things that are both related to one another.
1. your pull is starting too late.
2. your elbow isn't coming through early enough.
3. you aren't "clearing your hand" with the disc (read as: your body position and timing are off so that your wrist extension lags behind coming into the power zone).
the right pec drill is designed so that the disc is forward and you are in a position to rotate your upper body and hit it out in front of you.
to develop smoothness with this motion try starting at your left pec. i find that if the disc is at or forward of my left pec when my foot hits the ground on an x-step that i can hit the disc much better than if it's back past my body.
the key is that when your shoulders open up and you enter the power zone, your hand should be in front of the disc. if you are faced up and your hand is still curled around the disc, it's going to come out early (or you'll hit a massive grip lock).
If I want a reachback that is further back I will simply reach back more with the elbow keeping the disc about at the left pec. I will work on this and see if I can feel the hit better. Several weeks ago I was "feeling it" big time. For about a week maybe two I was throwing further with more accuracy than ever. But for some reason that feeling has left me. I think these things may help me out. Thanks again.
