Single Leg Hopping Assessment

What is running other than thousands of single leg hops or lunges? This is a progression of the functional test, single leg squat.

You should be able to perform this as much as needed with relative stability of your hip, knee, and ankle. A quick way to tell if you have the requisite stability is if you knee tracks over your second toe with each hop. If not, it is likely there are

  • hip/ankle mobility deficits
  • hip weakness
  • motor control issues
  • balance issues
  • any combination of the above
Seek out a qualified Physical Therapist if that is the case, or if you cannot complete this without pain.
