As for acceleration - I've worked on throwing right from my right pec before, but not on an extended basis. When practicing that, do you accelerate from a stand still to as fast as you can? Or is it an increasing acceleration? From a reach back I'd say slow to fast, but right up at the right pec, I was wondering if you still begin slower... well... as slower than as fast as you can.
Also, I'm assuming that you still pivot, dip the shoulder, etc. when throwing from the right pec? Still neutral wrist?
I accelerate as fast as I can, because essentially, that's how fast you should be going from that point on, on your regular reach back.
If your just starting this out and want to learn faster, don't worry about the pivot, shoulders, or wrist action, just focus on the feeling of the acceleration. But after a while yes, try pivoting and dipping your shoulder. my wrist is still neutral in this position. I do everything as I would in my regular throw as I would in this drill.
As you do this after a week or two, or just play a round after practicing this a couple times in the field, you will automatically start incorporating this into your throw. Which means all you have to do is practice your butt off in the fields, and take a couple days off, and go to the course and play a round and forget about what you were doing the previous days. That's what I did, and it worked for me. I was throwing farther without even knowing it, and then Blake kinda worked the crap outa me to get that extra shove that I needed.
By kicking your back leg up clears your hip and gets weight forward, I'll just say it right there.
The hardest thing to grasp was learning to clear my hip. I just did not understand it at all. I would kick my back foot up, but still not clearing my hip or I would clear my hip but I would lung forward and not pivot. So I made clear of this and worked extra hard for a long time before I finally got it.

Any chance of posting a video of the different stages we should be practicing? I look forward to more advice about this topic and am ready to hit the practice field hard.
Yeah, I'm trying to visualize throwing from the right pec but it almost seems counterintuitive.MrTasses wrote:
I'll second that. I have always struggled with the "Starting at the Right Pec" idea. I can never seem to figure out what that is supposed to look and feel like. I end up throwing with just my arm when I try that drill which strikes me as being the opposite of what that drill is supposed to teach.
