We use these ‘tennis ball reaction drills’ to promote proper footwork, acceleration, deceleration, pivoting, and landing. These can be used as a warm-up or as part of the actual workout! Thanks for watching! .

    firs steps are one step back then he starts to run his first steps should

    I respectfully disagree. That step back, called a plyo step, is a natural,
    quicker and more powerful movement. Scroll down to see my more thorough
    explanation in some previous replies.

    Jesus I agree with coach its not a step the hips have to travel
    forward or backward to be a step.The plyo is a natural repositioning of the
    feet to gain more power.Test it for your self and line athletes up in an
    athletic stance don't tell them what to do just say get out as fast as you
    can or use ball drop and watch what they all do.

    If you have your momentum forward, on your toes, and you don't take that
    step back, which is called a false step, you get out much more quickly
    because you don't waste those split second(s). Watch this guy, and in any
    NFL game. They always go right forward no disrespect though. The link is

    If you have momentum forward, then the ONLY direction you can go is
    forward... thus you are off-balance. Basketball is a multidirectional sport
    so leaning forward limits your options, thus is not ideal. And I
    respectfully disagree about the 'false step.' Stepping forward may be
    slightly quicker, but it is definitely NOT more powerful, thus, the player
    that takes the 'false step' will actually get to the spot faster.
