JR wrote:The straighter the torso is the faster you spin. Think of a figure skater doing a pirouette. Arms wide means slow arms in fast. If you both tighten the core muscles so that you don't tilt at the hips you'll spin a little faster. You may not notice it in feel but it should help with consistency. Your friend uses the Feldy kick but the left leg could go faster forward to counter the hips and shoulders turning the other way and the arm straightening. He should emphasize the hips and shoulders turning right more. Faster and farther right. Your left leg lifts off of the ground before the disc leaves so Newton's third law is working against you. So either leave the leg on the ground or switch to the Feldy kick.
JR wrote:That putting form is good for outside the circle putts but you can generate more power if you turn the left foot to face left instead of almost at the basket. See how your wrist points to the right of neutral in the follow through? If your release comes late the disc will miss right each time so i'd add more late acceleration to make sure that the disc leaves before the elbow straightens out. I cannot see the grip is it a power grip, a fan or something else? Power grip tightens up the forearm muscles slowing down the arm and the acceleration costing distance, accuracy and consistency.
JR wrote:On the drives i would brace the right leg muscles harder once the right heel touches the ground in the plant step and if you already are at maximum i'd extend the time the right leg is stopped in place. That would twist the hips faster and allow the elbow to get more forward for a faster acceleration=more powerful snap. Bracing the right leg means that the foot direction does not change until the disc gets to the right pec position +- whatever to yield the best distance for you. At which point you loosen up the muscles in the right leg and allow the heel pivot to begin.
JR wrote:The reach back is longish for accuracy shots and short for maximum golf distance. For longer reach backs you need to change the foot pointing direction of the x and the plant steps to face more back up to 180 degrees away from the target. Your running direction is mostly fine for an accuracy shot with some plant steps landing a little too far to the left tilting your body right unless you wanted anhyzers. For distance it is a matter of choice and philosophy and need for D whether you run in a straight line or curve pivoting in the x and plant steps.
