And if you're just standing still with a wide stance, then the push and go is the most natural. Getting set up for some different type of start is never worth it, just go with whatever position your feet are already in.
It seems like no matter which type of start you go with, the first 3 steps are really more like running than skating anyways.
Is that correct or am I missing something?
