Ok I did what you said. Surprisingly hard to just do three steps, those first two little ones were my comfort steps.

The second one looks and felt the best but I can’t figure out why. Also, seems like maybe I still need to shorten the x step? I thought I was doing a little one but watching it back it still looks kinda longer than necessary.

Yeah, your x-step is too far ahead of your CoG, note how Marc's CoG is ahead of the x-step and his knees don't even crossover. He hops everything forward.

Your rear arm is different between the first two, first one is reaching too far forward.

awesome thanks SW. I'll see if a little more hop gets me ahead of the plant more. How does he plant open like that and still look so good?

I think it looks a bit deceiving due to camera angle parallax.

His foot is turned/flared more open than most mortals at the plant, but also a lot more flexible and finishes more staggered closed than most. He still "shifts from behind" and doesn't "twist the rear foot and drop the knee" - it everts forward behind front leg.
