Default Re: Help in making the transition from a 1-legged jumper to a 2-legged jumper.

I used to be the same way. Had incredible 1 legged jumping ability and could barely barely tip dunk off 2 feet. After wearing down my left knee and getting tendinitis in it, I decided to switch to jumping off of 2 feet. I started to stretch more, hop on the treadbike more, and just kept jumping off my 2 feet for everything. Now I can smash off of 2 feet easily. Bottom line is force yourself to jump off of 2 feet for a while and eventually you will get up there and it will become second nature. Make sure to keep your tendons and joints loose too.
