This”GIMMIC” at the leg lift peak forces and angles the knee and lower leg from the ground up to the knee prematurely forward and forces the upper leg from tke knee up to angle back towards 2nd base imagine/visualize the lower leg being angled forward and the upper leg backwards and in opposite directions at the same time during the leg lift, then as the body moves forward into weight shift the angles increase, imagine the lower leg up to the knee only out there forward with no support and the upper leg being angled back towards 2nd base instead of up over the knee,visualize the negative position the force vector and all other movements are forced into.
I am sitting here viewing 3,sequenced photo,s of those positions and I say “OUCH”
The bottom line here is, that drive foot needs to be planted on flat ground and tucked back up against that rubber which is sometimes very difficult due to the lousy care of many mounds, “Grounds Keepers” “Please keep those mounds in nice condition for your pitchers.”

Although the power drive is a useless gimmic’ I will reiterate my above comment a bit and mention that one’s drive foot does not absolutely have to be planted on flat ground, some teachers prefer to teach that the drive foot can be as some state , curled over the rubber or placed parallel, splitting the rubber which automatically sets, forces the front hip out to the leading position which at the same sets the upper torso in a counter balance position.
