I've learned a couple of things in this thread to try out tonight while playing. I have great powerstrides and lack a little in foot speed when trying to do very quick starts. I do quick starts but i would like them to be on a higher level.
A couple of you guys gave me some good ideas in this thread.
I found this one the most interesting as I have not thought of it this way but it makes a lot of sense.
You want to start with short, choppy strides for the first 3 or 4 steps, like you're running on land. I've heard it described as "falling forward" sufficiently with your upper body that you must move your legs quickly or otherwise you would literally fall on your face.
