Cos the first press of the shutter has a higher chance of inducing shake. Common occurrence for burst shooting, shots subsequent to the first are almost always sharper.

Good idea.  Another one is if IS is enabled and you are not much of a back-button focuser or don't spend time just tracking and fire away the first shot ASAP.

However overall I think more details are needed from OP.  I would also avoid silent shutter modes.  I have taken sharp bursts before all the way through with good tracking.  I set both first and second shot to focus priority I believe.
