Oh man. I've worked on much more muscle memory since that last post of mine on this thread. I think the muscle I was using was actualy a tricep muscle when I was doing that snap thing. Now, I think I've finally taught myself how to relax my entire arm alot more (including my grip which was giving me tons of trouble). Now, I'm focusing on getting distance for a fluid motion kinda... Like, one thing I worked on was making my x-step balanced and not choppy. I think it also turns out that I was never keeping my wrist locked down when when i was throwing before, which I think would account for unpredicatability of nose angles as well as a loss in distance. When I keep my wrist locked down now, I think I really understand the whipping of my wrist better. I'm holding my hand higher on the reach back and trying to keep my elbow up, but not use it to throw, and trying to throw forward more than throw out. I have constently thrown around the 300ft mark since like I first started, but I know there have always been parts of my throw that have changed. Right now I think I'm starting to put less effort into my throw which is something I was always amazed with before when I saw long throws, how little effort it looked like people were putting into the throw. I'd say that when i posted that last post I didn't have any Idea of how my body was supposed to power the disc and I think I have a better idea now. Thats probably due to practicing and trying to correct various things, and just getting a better feeling for the throw over time. I was throwing reach back before that post, then getting into bent elbow during it, and now I'm back to reach back, but just to learn essential parts of fluidity and cleanliness of the throw. Once I feel like my throw has been cleaned up, I'll try to chop my elbow more and try to achieve some extra snap and distance that way. Right now, my reach back is like... reach back with disc level about shoulder height with wrist locked in the down position, then checking to make sure my elbow is as high as comfortably possible, then concentrating on pulling the disc through with the wrist locked down and somehow keeping it close to my chest still, its kinda an akward thing to do, I just have to learn how to bend my elbow correctly and not bend the wrist anymore. Also when I first started doing the reach back again for the first time, I definitely did notice that the farther back my arm reached, the more distance the disc got, even if it didn't seem like I was pulling any harder. (I am posting this having been playing for around...5 months) I'm going to have alot more discs next summer, so I'm hoping I will be able to have much more productive learning sessions for driving and putting.
Today seems like a good day to toss a disc or two.
The one for hyzer-flipping, turning over right on que.
I try to throw just like that, but sometimes I really suck.
Some say I need to get the axing, chalk it up to bad luck.
