    They definitely combine footwork with medicine ball training. Jez Green, who is most recently Murray's new fitness coach, likes having his people work with medicine balls with handles combined with first step footwork. Pros work on active recovery when they hit.

    the absolute best way to better ur acceleration is heavy lifting in the weight room....olympics lifts etc.
