Myth Busters On Footwork: The Cross Over Step

Lateral Slide - Trey Burke Draft Combine

Oh, this goodie comes to us via Brian McCormick of The Crossover Movement. It’s a video overlay of footwork skills used in a lateral slide with what the author calls a “trail leg as the power leg” (think: a traditional push-step-slide) contrasted with the “lead leg as the power leg” (…or what I’d call a cross over step).

See for yourself which is faster…

Just because we’ve always taught it a certain way, doesn’t make it right.
