robizm wrote:going to a soccer field (where I recommend) and just standing and throwing discs from one end to the other i a great way as well to work on your releases. I would take 2 soccer cones with me (since i coached and play) and put them in 2 spots as my 'targets' and throw back and forth to them.
Now that I can drive the whole field i just use the soccer goals as my target

A. After each throw, the thrown disc must be left where it came to rest until the lie is established by the placing of a marker. This can be done by placing a mini marker disc on the playing surface between the hole and the disc, directly in line with the hole, on the line of play, touching the thrown disc. A player may instead choose, without touching or repositioning the thrown disc, to use the thrown disc as the marker. The marker may not be moved until the throw is released. A marker inadvertently moved prior to the throw shall be returned to its correct location.

A. When the disc is released, a player must:
(1) Have at least one supporting point that is in contact with the playing surface on the line of play and within 30 centimeters directly behind the marker disc (except as specified in 803.04 E); and,
(2) have no supporting point contact with the marker disc or any object closer to the hole than the rear edge of the marker disc; and,
(3) have all of his or her supporting points in-bounds.
B. Stepping past the marker disc is permitted after the disc is released, except when putting within 10 meters.
C. Any throw from within 10 meters or less, as measured from the rear of the marker disc to the base of the hole, is considered a putt. A follow-through after a putt that causes the thrower to make any supporting point contact closer to the hole than the rear edge of the marker disc constitutes a falling putt and is considered a stance violation. The player must demonstrate full control of balance before advancing toward the hole.
D. A player must choose the stance that will result in the least movement of any part of any obstacle that is a permanent or integral part of the course.

Right now when I've been throwing, I've just been trying to get a good reach back, and transfering my weight from my back foot to the front on the release,
Very good approach... The X Step will just mess up your release. You shouldn't have to wait long, but wait a little while til you can at least hit 100-150 w/ a consistent, controllable stand-n-deliver... Once you've figured out the basics of the throw, then you can work on the X step on the side & bring it in slowly to your game.
and I 2nd that motion - GO PLAY! It's FRIDAY!
