Here's the link to my video describing my theory about how to train to improve vertical leap, and exactly how I do it in my small apartment.

If you do heavy dead lifts at home that has a yard, you can use my technique and drop the barbell at the top of the lift on the grass/ground/sand. It would be nice if some younger guy's on this forum to try my technique for a few months and see what happens.

solid presentation on that video.

the exercise itself looks decent but awkward -> same leg/same arm seems awkward to me. i feel like using opposite arm/leg might feel a bit more stable and allow you to get a "better" angle on the "single leg squat" while holding the db right underneath you. have you tried that? if so: like or dislike it?

if i didn't have barbells/rack etc, i imagine that exercise would have some effectiveness. i'd personally do other stuff as well, not just that exercise.

i did single arm db exercises and found them effective (sl db squat, sl db rdl, sl db bench), but I never did those variations "concentric only" with a drop.

hope your knee is ok.

pc!

Concentric only is similar to sled dragging

But I think without eccentric training, your muscles are not going get much bigger for strength gains that transfer over to non related tasks
And jumping off a run requires ability to absorb very large eccentric forces on the plant and landing

Hi Cool. Thank you for your comment.
Last time I played basketball. 1995. Got to relearn all skills over again. If you're aging, don't quit BB. It may help keep you feeling younger.
