The drill consists of standing with both feet facing back and the disc at my chest with the rim opposite of my hand actually touching my body. The foot placement is last part of x-step. I turned facing back with my torso cranked so to speak. I then started the throwing motion. Slowly turning on my right foot and pressing off the back, and right after pushing off the back foot, turned my upper body and around (throwing motion).
You ought to think about recording what it looks like. I have an extra camera I'm willing to lend if need be.
Does the foot go from toe-heel-toe during the pivot in the 180 degrees plant? Where does the plant foot end after it's done pivoting? 90 or 45 degrees?
To help me get the timing right, Brad held a dog leash that I pulled on while starting the drill. With that, it prevented me from going further than my right pectoral. I could REALLY feel the timing as it forced everything to follow in the correct order at the right time. I could REALLY feel pressing off that back foot and transferring power into the throw. With the leash lifted, I was hitting the time right and it was stretching muscles that haven't really been stretched before when I've thrown. If I would have been throwing those discs, I know I would have killed them.
That's a good idea for a drill.
All I have to do is convince my wife to hold a dog leash while I act like a moron throwing an invisible disc. She'll do it. I just have her believe that I'm a dog and she's the pack leader. har har har
it's basically utilizing the martial arts concepts of using foot rotation to trigger insanely powerful uncoiling motions.
Great, now I'm going to have to learn kung fu.
