Mastering single leg rebounds

I have by no means mastered single leg rebounds, but it is one of my goals now.

this is somewhat like a pre-testing video... up until a couple of months ago though, i couldn't perform this drill like you see in the video. So, i have been improving.

any comments / or video of yourself performing these drills, feel free to post.

Well, you're definitely a lot better on your left leg, but you probably already knew that.

It looks to me like you are jumping more so than effortlessly rebounding.

Agreed. Lower the box if you can, try to fall 'down' from the box rather than jump 'up' onto it. also, don't break at the hip - you get more glute if the plant leg is straighter and the foot stays under the the hip.

ya i was trying to keep my leg straight, but my body wouldn't let me.. thats why ive started doing single leg stiff leg ankle hops (nice and light for now) to get used to that position..

in that video, on the few jumps where my leg was straighter, I can definitely see more rebound.

It is not enough to train hard, you must also train smart!
