Just like you tilt to the angle of your hyzer/anhyzer, your reach back/pull through relative to your lower body rotates. For hyzers, its a clockwise rotation, for anhyzers, its counterclockwise, looking top down.
I am not sure I am understanding this. Some visual explanation would be awesome! lol
Let me try again. I'll try to describe the way I throw a hyzer with height, RHBH. I'm going to refer to the directions of the tee pad in reference to a clock, front being 12, back is 6, left is 9 (the side the disc passes your body on), right is 3.
If you are throwing a flat, your shoulders and disc all stay in, approximately the same plane (or parallel planes depending on how low your pull through is). This should stay consistent at all times. Now if I'm throwing hyzer, that plane rotates so that it is lower at 9 o'clock and higher at 3 o'clock. 12 and 6 should still be approximately the same height and the axis your torso rotates on (i.e. your spine) is perpendicular to this plane. To add height to my hyzer, I am rotating my torso on this tilted axis so that, at my full reach back, instead of being at 6 with the disc, its back to around 6:30 or 7.
Now if you are keeping in the same plane, this moved the disc both towards the left side of the tee pad and down, so that if your pull through is the same, the disc is coming slightly up and slightly to the right. If you were to look at the relationship between just the disc and your torso, it is 100% the same as throwing flat.
Maybe this makes more sense? Anhyzer works very similar. If it doesn't, I'll see if I can get something visual. And yes, I know this seems like a very... technical... explanation. Best I know how.
Like zj said too though, throwing far isn't about aiming really high. You are still aiming more out than up. The way I throw with this is the same way I throw steeper hyzers and anhyzers too.
