To accentuate hip twisting you could lock your right leg immediately after planting. Really bulging your calf and especially thigh. When your right leg is immobile or allowing you to bend weight forward the momentum and left leg push combined with the hip twist will force the right leg to pivot on the ground. Because the momentum has to go somewhere and when it isn't dissipated by moving your right leg it increases the leg pivot. But the power of momentum also goes to any place where it can. Here the hip twist really benefits because locking the right leg forces the momentum to go into twisting your hips at great initial speed even without using the muscles around the hips. Add hip twist to that and you're _really_ talking of hip explosion.

Remember to rotate over the ball of your foot if you want to maintain any knee joint for the years to come!
I think you would definitely gain from bending more forward from the waist. That's much more important than keeping the right shoulder lower. Although the right shoulder should make a widened U shape in the throw for a hyzer.
For usage of hips push yourself away from a wall as fast as you can by starting from leaning to the wall just touching it with your both shoulder blades. Then try a late acceleration. See how far you can go by twisting faster and faster. When you can't go any faster try to memorize that feeling. You probably won't get that while throwing without perfect form and great body control. I can't get as good execution mid throw as I do with practicing parts of form like this. This exercise should be done with the hips alone not turning the shoulders to maintain constant power generation. Once you fly away from the wall you're well on your way to better hip utilization. Power, timing of the acceleration and controlling your body.
One of things that I think help accomplish this is bending the knees more and throwing with a lower stance.
I cant remember for this specific shot, but as I said I was throwing slight hyzers in a slight cross tailwind, so the distance is not really indicative of real world performance. I had a couple of throws that went a US footballfield + 20-30 paces.Looks good, how far you throwing?
Not sure I quite understand what you mean?Also, how do you get your body to follow thru like that!?
Im sorry, but I dont understand this at all, could you please clarify? Why would I try to turn the front side of right knee into the side of my left knee?You're pivoting around your plant leg. Turn the front of your right knee into the side of your left knee. Then see if you can slowly start with the left knee and turn it into the side/back of the right knee.
The disc looks like it starts our mega hyzer and slowly works it's way to almost flat as your throw progresses...you should work on preserving the angle it's at, from the point of your reachback through when it leaves your hand.

Then see if you can slowly start with the left knee and turn it into the side/back of the right knee. You'll end up pivoting the right toes to your right. You should feel some of the power those hips could generate if you do it slowly.
Now, after doing it a few times, pivot the hips in, then pivot your shoulders around. You should be facing away from a would be target. Crank those hips around and try and sync up your torso/shoulders to pick up right where your hips start to stop. That's the kind of rotational speed and power you want to put right ahead of your right pec arm acceleration.
