Tony Rangel Tony Rangel Tony Rangel
Tony starts his throw with a leading step and his final 3 steps are a traditional X-step. This is at the beginning of his X-step as he gets his momentum moving forward.

Tony Rangel Tony Rangel Tony Rangel
Tony keeps his momentum moving forward with a light step through the cross-step as his hips and shoulders rotate closed.

At Tony's point of maximum reach back, his hips are rotated closed and he uses his off arm to help rotate his shoulders until his back is facing the target. His weight is over his back foot and he is ready to push off into his plant/pivot.

Tony has planted his foot ~90 degrees from the target onto a bent knee and his hips are beginning to rotate open. This is as the beginning of his pull and the disc is close to his chest on the pull line.

This is right before the hit. Tony's hips have exploded open and rotated his shoulders, whipping his arm through. His weight is over his plant foot and his elbow is in the process of extending as his right foot begins its pivot.

Immediately after the hit, Tony's hips and shoulders are now fully open. His elbow is fully extended and his arm is entering the follow-through.

Tony's follow-through is strong and his upper body is still moving. His back leg has lifted off the ground and his off arm is now far off his body to aid in slowing down his rotation.

Tony's left leg steps forward a little as he completes his pivot.
