Single Leg Deadlift with Lifeline Power Jumper

Best Use For Improving Vertical Jump

Single leg deadlifts are great for building strength in the glutes, hamstrings, and core, as well as building balance and stability of the joints. Like most single leg exercises the balance component and the unilateral nature of the movement transfers over pretty well to running and jumping. The addition of the power jumper further enhances this exercise by adding in an accommodating resistance component as well as increasing the challenge to your balance and stability.

Technique Tips

To perform this exercise you do it exactly as you would without the Power Jumper. Balance on one leg, then bending at the knee and hips descend down before exploding back up using a forceful contraction from the quads, hamstrings and glutes. By adding a brief pause at the bottom you can also improve your RFD as you overcome the resistance from a static position.
