Adam 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.

Adam steps through with a very light cross-step that keeps his momentum moving forward as his hips and shoulders rotate closed.

At Adam'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.

Adam has planted his foot ~45 degrees from the target onto a bent knee and his hips are beginning to rotate open. This is as the beginning of his pull.

Right at the hit, Adam's hips and shoulders have rotated open. He has begun his pivot and his elbow is in the process of extending. Adam's off arm is still close to his body to maximize speed of rotation. Adam is throwing a hyzer and his weight is slightly behind his pivot foot with his upper body leaned slightly to the left.

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

Adam has a strong follow-through and he continues to rotate on his pivot foot.
