Topher starts his throw with a few leading steps but his final 3 steps are a traditional X-step. This is at the beginning of his X-step and his footwork is very light as he gets his momentum moving forward.
Topher keeps his momentum moving forward through the cross-step as his hips and shoulders rotate closed.
At Topher's point of maximum reach back, his hips are rotated closed and his back is facing the target. His weight is over his back foot and he is ready to push off into his plant/pivot.
Topher 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 and his off arm is near his body.
At the hit, Topher's hips and shoulders have opened and his elbow is in the process of extending. His off arm is still close to his body and he has started his pivot. Topher is leaned back slightly in order to get over on an overstable disc.
Immediately after the hit, Topher's elbow has fully extended and his hips and shoulders are totally open as he enters his follow-through.
Topher has a strong follow-through as he continues his pivot and his off arm is now away from his body to slow his rotation.
Topher has stepped through the pivot as his upper body completes its rotation.
