Side-by-side comparison of shooting

It's a little difficult to compare because we're trying different types of shots (I'm trying to land on my kicking foot, Eric isn't) but it's interesting to see how much further back I plant my foot and how much more rotation Eric gets.

    Awesome. Like a scientific report!

    Why are you trying to land on your kicking foot, is there some technical advantage to doing so?

    Eric used to be a kicker in American Football and apparently that's what they do -- it's a good way to get extra power in a straight line.

    Looks like he's a wee bit more flexible than you, eh?
  • Dunstan Orchard PRO 7y

    Yeah, you can see my short hamstrings refusing to extend in the follow through.
  • Bronwyn Jones PRO 7y

    But you land so much more casually. Like you're all "Yeah, that happened. So what?"

    I would say look at where your hand is and where the other players hand is. Much different setup position. His foot is much further ahead like you said.
    It is cool to compare. Sometimes the best form doesn't get the best results.
    We are all a bit different in style.

    Very cool comparison. I also notice you leaning forward over the ball a lot more as you approach. Then you both end up more or less vertical as the ball is struck. Wonder if it translates to more power? Would be neat to track the motion of the hips.
