Gotcha. Hmm. Something to ponder. How do you keep your wrist stiff without keeping your forearm and upper arm too stiff and therefore slowing down and missing the whole timing thing?

When it gets to the point to where I can't hold it back(my arm is nearly extended) I try to do the Bruce Lee style one inch punch except the wrist movement is horizontal and not vertical. Or, open my box cutter. In order to open my knife you must have active wrist extension. This is the feeling I shoot for in my throw.
Do you do this with a standstill throw, a full run up or both? This seems REALLY difficult to time and feels really unnatural. Is this something that you started to practice while doing the right pec drill? Or, can you even do it then? Just tried it in my back yard and felt a little with my putters, but will have to try it more on the practice field to tell more.

I can throw with half hitting snap all day on demand now, but the active wrist extension is actually tiring to my forearm and hand at this point. I need to build up those muscles! Where are my weights?
Me too. I can get 425' pretty regularly, but can't get much past it.
I noticed that I can get much more snap on a towel when I lift my elbow up from its "normal" position at my stomach to closer to my chest. Hmm. Yet another thing I must try...
Powerball! Just dooooo eeeet! (Think Arnold).
