In volleyball we mainly jump off two legs at a time, but it is critical that you train single leg jumping. You will find all volleyball players have a discrepancy in the strength/power between the left versus right leg. You will also notice an athletes stability and control will vary from left versus right. It is important to do single leg strength training and also single leg plyometrics to keep both legs strong, powerful, and stable.
