💡I don't teach players to get their feet "shoulder width" apart 💡.
🤔 But I do teach that same distance apart. What am I talking about? I teach players to get their feet "hip width" apart.
🙄 It's a small detail but an important one. Players can see their shoulders, so they don't really know how wide their shoulders are. When players looks down at their feet, they can see their hips, and their hips are about as wide as their shoulders.
✅ In a perfect world I would want players to be wide enough with their feet that they can fit their hips in between the insides of their feet. Are you always going to be this wide in games? No, but you should be comfortable with it so when you need that extra balance you've got it.
