I do not have any real good pictures of jamming (since most of the pros do not so this). Jamming is throwing the upper body into the right hip and leg. This leads to the right hip falling back and the leg straightening at an angle back away from the line of the throw. Look at Steve Rico.
In this position he is very close to being jammed.
Now compare the right hip "leading" lower body motion of Ken Climo.
Klimo moves his upper body through and past the right hip (while the right hip appears almost to fixed in space).
So, his right leg does not collapse and his hips do not fall back (which can lead to your right butt cheek being sore). He also has to come up off his trailing foot more in the "weight forward" position.
Mind you, Rico does "recover" from his jammed position. He moves his upper body around to the left and forward, keeping his upper body rotation "offset" to his lower body rotation with his waist bend. The final position is very "athletic", and although impressive, appears very difficult.
