Really been experimenting the last week, here are some towel drill videos since I can't get outside.
I have been working on wrist extension, so I indicated in the bottom corner whether I got bad, better, or good towel snap. The first portion of the video is a set of bad to good snap videos with slow late acceleration. The second portion of the video is set of bad to good snap videos where I'm focusing on getting better late acceleration. The final portion of the video is recorded from the front. Most of these throws are 100% power with a low pull and some hyzer, I haven't figured out how to integrate some of my changes into a flat or anny throw yet, or into an 80% power throw.
I went out Friday and threw looong and finally got the feel of slinging the disc (it's been what, 3 years of work to finally get that feeling?) I was excited, especially because I was getting serious distance and because it was such a new feeling. I had a much harder time translating it to the course the next day, I was really having a hard time throwing flat, I suspect that my wrist is not staying nose down during extension.
Any comments would be welcome, I feel like my form is in limbo right now with all of the expirementation I'm doing trying to get better extension and late acceleration. Some of my questions:
I'm not really sure why I get snap sometimes and not others, and the same goes for late acceleration. I have my suspicions...
I would really love to gain accuracy, not necessarily distance. How do the pros aim?
Is it reasonable to expect to be able to aim at full power?
Are you supposed to aim with the 1-inch punch during the uncoiling of the wrist? It all happens so fast...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4cjmbjq83M
