Progress on swing ¶

I’ve been working on your suggestions (not straightening trail arm as quickly) and was hoping you could take a look.
I’ve noticed to get to the ball with a more bent trail arm I’ve got to rotate more into impact. I’m kind of letting my arms fall in a relaxed manner as I think tension is an issue for me too. I don’t feel I have to actively rotate my arms as hard, things seem to square up more naturally, and the release/follow through look better too.
I’ve been using a training aid to help get in a better position at the top of the backswing and to “feel” that I’m keeping that trail arm bent longer, seems to help. Only hitting this six iron maybe 70 yards, and very low but on target.
The thing I’m noticing is maybe i need to get my hips more forward at impact, I think the hard thing is when I try to do that I tend to get out of posture.
If you have thoughts on how I can keep better posture at impact and be able to dial up the speed to start taking larger swings that would be great. Any other observations would be really appreciated, hopefully I’m on the right track.
