Portuguese translation:giro ou rotação (do corpo)
Explanation:
The third step in throwing a forehand is the windup. The force enacted on the frisbee comes from the whole body, not just the arm. To build this force, twist your body, with your throwing shoulder going toward your back, away from your target. This twisting should extend all the way from your ankles up to your shoulders; it is not just something that comes out of the waist. Additionally, you should cock your arm back: your throwing elbow should come back a little, and you should rotate your arm until your forearm is close to parallel with your hips. Because the twist goes through your whole body, it does not require a lot of rotation at any given point; you should not have to twist in a manner that you find uncomfortable
