Getting Your Arms Vs Your Body Stuck

Good players often complain about feeling stuck. If you use early extension to help shallow the club and hit a draw, then your body ends up getting in the way of the ideal arm path. When your trail arm gets blocked by your rib cage, this typically has the effect of hitting blocks and snap hooks and the sensation of being stuck and/or flippy.

What is happening here is that you have early extended and your rib cage is in the way, but, you have figured out a good way of knowing where the bottom of the swing is when you do this. A lot of golfers first feel very steep as they work out of early extension. If you feel stuck, don't forget to work on your arm motion through the ball so that you don't get steep from a better body position.
