for backhand throwing you have to throw it as if the head of the hammer is in the spot where i drew it, while there obviously isn't a hammer head or counterweight there. brad walker and i talked about this quite a bit and have both come to the agreement that the hammerhead out in free space is the correct idea.
or you could think about it as a hammer with an elongated and curved "back end". either way, you would throw it as if the hammer head is where i drew it in.
the hammer head at the opposite edge of the disc is true for sidearm and overhand throwing, but it is not correct for backhand throwing.

Don't the shoulders pretty much have to stay still, or at least not be moving the arm until the angle between the upper and lower arm is 90 degrees or more? It just seems like otherwise they would just be fighting the extension of the lower arm. This is something I have been thinking about a lot lately, and I'd love to get some insight on it, whether it's correct or not.
