What I see is the biggest issue is in your arm action (like many others here).
You “push” the ball.
Where I slow down the clip, you have about 3 frames where your arm get’s up too early, and you loose any scapular loading that you may have built up. This energy “leak” causes the beginning of the whip action (kinetic sequencing or kinetic chain) to break down. This leaves you with about 3 frames where your arm is just basically coasting along waiting for you to push it through release.
Your lower half you could use a little better loading of the rear hip as you move out. You need to “sit” deeper into footplant and ultimately get that momentum to transfer up through your core into your arm.[/quote]
That’s cool how you got the frames next to eachother. What would you suggest I do to work on this? Is this a result from breaking my hands too early, or not taking the ball out correctly? Thanks for the help man[/quote]
It could be as simple as you breaking your hands a little later. Timing and rhythm problems (that cause other problems) aren’t as easy to correct as you might think.
After looking at the clip more I will clarify my last analysis by saying your pushing the ball is more what I would call a “pie thrower”, because the pushing is when your arm is up so high and it occurs later in the throw (in the last few frames before release).
You want to do some drills that isolate your arm action. Something where you only throw with your arm (from various points in your delivery).
Do one where your hands are apart (in an athletic position standing sideways to your target), then take a small “slide step” and throw. Then progress to something where you end up with your hands together as when your are in a set position.
Break it up into 3 or 4 sections (from release all the way back to hand break from a set position). You’ll need to check yourself on video as you work on this to see if you are moving in the right direction.
Don’t expect this to correct itself very quickly. It may take 5 or 10,000 quality reps before you see any improvement.[/quote]
Yea I would def like to work on my arm action. Could you possibly provide more detail for the drills above and maybe any clips you know of with backwards chaining? I’ve been trying to find them on here.
