One-Legged Deadlift Hop
Step 1: Stand on one leg with the other leg lifted in the air. The up leg knee is at hip height. The arms are up at 90 degree angles the entire movement.
Step 2: Keeping the back slightly arched and the core tight, hinge forward at the hips. As the upper body moves towards being parallel to the floor the up leg extends and swings out backwards. In the fully extended position, the upper body and up leg will be parallel to the floor.
Step 3: While returning back to upright position upright, swing the up leg back to bent position and through the vertical body line. Leading with this knee, jump up from the down leg.
Step 4: Land in bent knee position. with up leg returning to starting position.
Step 5: Use the momentum of the leg swing to continue to next rep.
Tips: Ensure that the deadlift is done with a slow, controlled pace. Keep the neck relaxed and extend that heel back with a strong down leg. Maintain a constant speed while pushing the leg through. Focus on landing softly and balance. Stick each landing by lowering your hips into the landing.
