Jumping, Plyometrics, Return to Sport, single leg

In Part 1 we covered double leg jumping and progressions and explained how to progress jumping with athletes.  In part 2 we’ll focus on single leg jumping and progressions.  I generally start single leg jump variations once double leg jumping looks symmetrical and an athlete has adequate strength to perform several single leg squats and deadlifts with strong technique.  Before we move on, here are the rest of the installments:

Part 1 – Double Leg Jumping

Part 3 – Advanced Double Leg Jumping

Part 4 – Advanced Single Leg Jumping

In the video below you’ll find my favorite single leg jumping progressions to start with.  In the next 2 installments we’ll look at more advanced variations.

Have Fun,
