So the other day I tried to shoot some instructional videos. Wind was super loud so only 20% or so of the footage was useable. I put that content into some stupid little starter video you can see here
just so I had something to go from. Obviously it's all jittery from the editing and isn't comprehensive at all but it was a learning experience and will help me with what not to do for the more in-depth BH video.
Here's what I'm thinking of including in the video. Anything you think I should add or leave out?
1. Defining OAT, showing what it does and discussing how to eliminate it.
2. Discussing late acceleration / snap / the hit
3. Pulling in a straight line not around the body, keeping the disc on the same plane while pulling through.
4. Rotating the entire body to generate power and discussing leading with the legs, hips and shoulders.
5. Footwork. X-step examples, follow through etc.
6. Grip and proper wrist alignment.
7. Keeping disc close to chest on the pull through.
8. Weight forward
9. Follow through in general. Discussing why it's important to avoid injury and how to follow through on the same plane of the throw.
10. Some random little tips like keeping your off hand off the disc.
11. How to power down your throwing form. Using less body rotation, throwing from a standstill etc.
12. Mention something about how other forms like the Swedish style of throwing will have some variations in the technique but generally the fundamentals are all the same.
13. Aiming with your body.
14. Working from the HIT back to develop your throw, recommending starting at a standstill and focusing on feeling the snap etc.
15. Possibly include a section on how to throw hyzer and anhyzer...maybe save this for another video.
I'm wondering a couple of things. First if there is any specific way you think would be best to organize these topics. I have my own ideas but I wanted to hear from others too. Second, I was talking with a friend through DGCR and he mentioned he finds instructional videos much easier to follow if they give a sort of step-by-step series of exercises for you to try out. If you have any thoughts on that let me know.
I will also be linking to additional resources such as other videos like Dan's HIT videos, the incomplete secret thread and other such things, but I'm hoping to incorporate a lot of these ideas into an easy to digest video to give people an accessible starting point for refining form.
