Right, please rip into me.
Drives below - it's the first time I've filmed any in 3 years and have hardly played at all for over a year due to babyitis.
I knew my form had got bad (the distance and accuracy had been telling me this) but i hadn't realised quite how bad until I saw these played back.
First lot are standing drives with Rocs and a Stratus to around 60 - 75 meters. The next ones are with Bosses which once upon a time I could throw 110 - 120 meters in a straight line but nowadays the longest here was around 95 (the orange one), there had been a couple of longer ones in the set before but i managed to not turn the camera on.
For me I am getting no shoulder pause ( i could feel the lack of it as I was throwing yet couldn't work out how to get it in so any tips would be greatfully accepted.) I seem to be rotating and spinning the shoulder around instead of lateral movement across the body, meaning there is little to no elbow stop/elbow chop and lower arm whip. My xstep is weird to say the least, more sort of a dancey hop, the last step which felt big whilst I was doing it is tiny, i'm getting hardly any weight shift and i'm pretty sure i'm starting the pull way too early, the hips are spinning rather than pulling. I feel like I'm bouncing/hopping through at the end too much as well and not letting the shot flow. At the end of this I pulled a muscle in my back as well which is killing me now as I sit here typing!! Bad day all round!
I still haven't even begun to manage to link up the good work I've done with Brad Walkers closed shoulder snap drill and the right pec drill into a proper throw, i can't even properly work these into a standing throw. Doing both of those without any other movements works well - putters out to 60 meters on dead straight lines with little to no reachback. then I add other movement and this monstrosity occurs. I meant to film those two bits as well but then pulled the muscle and called it a day. I'm afraid only being able to get out to practise once a month probably doesn't help, it's just so frustrating as I have been there before and i know when i was throwing (relatively) big it was easy and effortless, I just wish I could find it again. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFlfIV9QAekhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjaJQfhh ... e=youtu.be

Thoughts? aside from start from scratch all over again :9( - i'm getting too old and inflexible to do that many more times!
