I am trying to use the dm59 method of backwards progression (I think that’s what he calls it) to evaluate my mechanics.
Today I recorded myself and noticed that my ball release is way too high. I am releasing the ball at about my head instead of the NPA way, which says to release past the front foot. Is the ball supposed to be released so far out? It just feels weird. If so, is this what the towel drill (without the stride) tries to teach?
I also noticed that in the stretch delivery my hands are moving up past my chin as my stride knee comes up. Is this extra motion wasteful and or have consequences on my delivery?
The rmain eason why I am working on the backwards progression is because I have 2 issues I am trying to fix. 1. I am having a really tough time stopping my lead shoulder from flying out. It’s flying out before foot plant. I know… I know it’s bad but I have tried everything and I can’t stop doing it. 2. I also noticed that at foot plant, my posting foot is still on the rubber and not rotated to laces down. Can anyone give me some pointers on these issues. I am out of ideas and trying to figure out how to fix all this stuff from the end to the start (instead of the other way around)
