Hey Guys,

Got a couple videos of a handful of my drives. Sorry I didn't compile them into one video (I'll do that next time), but I'd love to hear any feedback you have. I can consistently hit 375'-400' throwing about 10-12' off the ground. I know one of the things I need to work on is aiming higher. None of these drives are for pure distance, but if one of them was, the first is typically the style of how I throw for distance.

Drive with Pro Destroyer, not sure of specific distance, but the drive was exactly where it needed to be (10' from basket).

Drive with Roc, not a long hole, but I did park it again. Specifically an accuracy drive.

Less sole to ground contact for faster pivots, closer pull to the chest, slightly later turning of the torso from 90 degrees right of the target to less, more reach back and faster steps plus a run up will give distance if you manage to maintain good form. Aiming higher is easier if you aim visually. Your accuracy form is quite good and the lack of a long reach back does help in keeping the eyes on the target. Try to pick up a real and if not possible an imaginary aiming point for both height and sideways aiming.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Thanks JR! For the most part I'm already on only the balls of my feet for, I believe, all of those drives. Are you talking about the plant? I think that's the only time my whole foot makes contact with the ground. Otherwise I'm just bouncing on the balls of my feet (it's a bit hard to see with the resolution on these vids).

I'll start working on the right pec drill (left for me) again. I had started but it was difficult to implement into my rounds, as I've only recently been really comfortable throwing again (married and a few kids meant reduced play time, and while I could still throw the disc well enough, I lost the driving feel from when I used to really play a lot, which I finally just got back). I know the right pec drill will help with closer pulls to the chest, what about with the later turning of my torso to less? Logically it seems like it, as you can't really turn your body a full 90 degrees from the target at a standstill (or at least it's difficult).

I've tried picking targets and keeping my eye on them, or re-obtaining them asap after my head turns back to where I'm driving. It's helped my accuracy driving, and my upshots, but I can't quite get the hang of it when I'm driving for power. I'll keep working on it.

Driving visual aiming accuracy is more difficult at higher speeds and unsteady bumping up and down during stepping. Yes you would pivot faster with even higher stance on the balls of the feet when x stepping with each step. That higher stance uses more of your ankle as a shock absorber and facilitates faster stepping with better balance until you go to too much toes when it becomes very unstable. I learned that right pec at chest 90 degrees away from target by standing still flat footed just moving my arm not ever moving a degree with the torso. That means no leg motions and frozen hips and shoulders as well. Just a direct arm pull from back to front of the tee.
