Now that its been some months,
Interested in results with regards to the backstep change that was made.
Start with one foot off or stepping back.

Did your instructor start applying teaching this?

I've found that farther isn't better. Too far back and it's too difficult to drive into the front edge of the rubber. Maybe 1-5 inches give or take. I still like pitchers to start with their toe against, or near the back edge of the rubber and have the freedom for the foot to move back as needed.
