Off wall, outside cut with explosive movement

Off wall, outside cut with explosive movement

Set up 4 cones in a rectangle about 5 yards from the wall to act as 2 gates. Standing in the center, pass into the wall and fake before you receive. Receive on your back foot and immediately do an outside cut and explode through the gates. An alternative is to receive through one gate, outside cut and explode through the other.
