And I know you'll hate it, but iron crosses. Lots and lots of iron crosses. Start in the middle of the circle, do crossovers straight left to the edge, stop, then back to center. Strong start to the top, stop, backwards crossover start to the center. Crossovers right, back to center. Backwards crossover start to the bottom, stop, start to center, stop.

Lots of those, and don't skimp. Go hard to the edges and put on a full, hard stop. One of the most hated drills, but you will get much more explosive starts in all directions.
Ugh we did this in my adult clinic... they hurt so much... definitely extremely helpful though. I've taken some nasty spills doing those things.

I never knew they were called "iron crosses" though. Interesting.
