Brian starts his throw with a couple of leading steps but his final 3 steps are a traditional X-step. Brian's first step is pointed a little away from the target and he begins his hip and shoulder rotation away from the target as he enters his X-step.
As Brian enters his cross-step, his shoulders and hips are already rotated away from the target. His cross-step is quick to continue his momentum moving forward.
At Brian's point of maximum reach back his weight is over his back foot and his hips and shoulders are still rotated away. His off arm is close to his body with his hand resting on his thigh. Here his grip has the disc oriented in the nose down position.
Brian has planted his pivot foot ~70 degrees from the target and he is beginning his weight shift forward. His hips and shoulders are rotating open. The disc is close to his chest on the pull line and his off arm is still tight at his side.
At the hit, Brian's shoulders and hips have fully opened. His foot is well into his pivot and his elbow is in the process of extending. Brian's weight is slightly behind his pivot foot and he utilizes the slight upward vectors to aid his launch trajectory.
Immediately after the hit, Brian's elbow has fully extended as he enters his follow-through. He is now well into his pivot and his body is fully open.
Brian gets a strong follow-through and his momentum continues forward after the release.
Brian has stepped through the pivot at the end of his follow-through.
