I have read that thread as well as a bunch of other threads and for the most parr it just doesn't make sense to me. "Wrist extension", "stopping the elbow", wtf. I just don't grasp it. I'll read again and see if something clicks.
Without throwing take an FH stance and bend the wrist back (left of neutral). That is where your wrist will be during the throw once you'll accelerate with the arm. From there you should snap the wrist forward at least to neutral. In BH it is sometimes recommended to extend the wrist to beyond neutral so for a lefty FH that would mean right of neutral. I have never tried it and don't know if anyone throws like that and if it is beneficial or detrimental so you need to find out for yourself. Mirror image for the BH shot.
I suck some in stopping the elbow if the exact definition ain't getting the elbow forward in a BH shot with the disc by the left pec LHBH or even closer to the target than that and then not swooping the arm to the left but keeping the elbow in place _while_ you straighten the elbow _relative_ to the body. Naturally the x step has you moving forward so the elbow is moving forward relative to the tee but don't mind that it is how it's supposed to be.
Sometimes wording things differently helps to click because everyone is different so please don't hesitate to ask if you're unclear about some terms or ideas.
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.
