Today I’m going to be teaching you how to do the bunny. So probably the number one request I get is for making an article on how to bunny hop.
So, the tips, like weren’t always fresh in my head and I don’t like to make an article but I can’t explain them like really well, but I’ve been teaching a lot of people recently had a bunny hop and all the tips are like super fresh in my head So, now’s the time to write the article.
If you’re searching how to bunny hop chances are. Too impatient to learn on your own, and if you are lazy you can’t get success.
So just bear with me, there’s going to be kind of a long article but I’m going to give you the most like detailed instructions, step-by-step tutorial.
And I promise you’re going to learn bunny hops or your money back. So rather than just tell you everything you need to do at once, I find it easier to tell you, like one thing to focus on at a time.
What we’re going to do is we’re going to combine all those things and then you should be doing. So one thing that people don’t really focus on that much, or the things that you just kind of need to know, like body position wise on your bike before you even get started.
If you’re trying to bunny hop and you’re like holding your wrists like this, it’s going to be nearly impossible to get all the right leverage in the ways that you need.
So, when you got an adult BMX bike its all are the same things you need to do and here you just need to keep your practice ongoing.
So, the first thing I want you guys to do is to just kind of ride with your wrist, angled downward a little bit. It’s going to give you more leverage and the ability to actually do what you need to do.
It’s also kind of self-explanatory, but your pedals should be level whenever you’re doing any trick on your bike, don’t have one up in one down, have your pedals level.
Step one is very simple here all we’re going to learn how to do is just pull the front end of your bike up. I want you to tell me to take your weight forward, shift it backward, and kind of hang off the back of the bike with your arms.
That’s going to pull your bike up and it’s going to give you the position where you’ll be ready to do the hop. If your arms are bent, you’re just going to be like pushing up and down.
It’s just not going to work very simply, not too scary. You shouldn’t get hurt doing this. Just like I said, focus on shifting your weight forward and then shifting it back and kind of yanking on the bike with very straight arms, arms locked and here you also have some biking safety tips.
You don’t need to be able to pull up your front end very high, but if you are comfortable with it, it’s going to make the bunny hop easier.
So, you figured out how to get the front wheel up. I bet you can guess that. Now we’re going to teach you guys how to get the back wheel up.
This is where that risk position that I told you guys about is going to be really, really important because now what we’re going to do is lift the back end of the bike up by taking our weight from the back and shifting it forward.
We’re not going to do it with the manual tool. We’re just going to lift the back wheel up. Don’t worry about the front wheel right now.
I’ve always told people to shift their weight back and then forward to lift the back end of the bike up. But one of my friends was actually teaching someone and he told them to kind of use their toes.
I think that’s a really good example. It can be really confusing at first, but I want you to kind of, when you’re doing it, angle your toes down a little bit.
Then when you’re shifting your weight back to forward, when you going to push, lift up with your toes and that’ll bring them back into the bike up.
Your arms are straight the whole time. You’re just kind of shifting your weight. Look at my big muscular arms. I promise that won’t happen. You’re not, that’s not going to happen to you.
You’re not, this is not going to happen. I promise. So now you’ve got step one master, which is lifting the front wheel up step two master, which is lifting the back wheel up.
You might be like lifting both wheels up at the same time, but whatever, like at this point, I’m just trying to teach you guys how to get your bike off the ground, because you probably need to be a Mexican.
It’s going to feel really good knowing that you can get air without a jump. When you’re getting in the phase where you’re more ready to do the bunny hop.
Then you need to take your weight once you’re lean back and then not really push forward or anything.
I like to describe it kind of like an Oleanna skateboard because there’s a good chance that most of you guys are failed with skateboarders.
You tried that it didn’t work and now you’re on and it is kind of like that motion where you’re leaning back and sliding forward and that’s what propels your motion.
But what people don’t really focus on is how important your legs are and it depends on how you use your foot and the focus point is also so important here.
Cause you’re going to kind of be leaning back. Your front wheel will be up, and then you just kind of want to spring, push forward and then use your toes.
Like I told you, you got to realize that like anything like it’s not going to come like that. It’s you’re going to need tons of practice where you can start bunny hoping high. So, here you need to be concerned about it.
You just need to keep working on it. Now I’m going to address another really common question, concern, whatever you might think that you’re too weak to do a bunny hop, or you might think that your is too. Good news for you.
Neither of those makes any difference. People have been doing super high bunny hops since bikes weighed 40 pounds, and you could take any other partner for riding.
Who’s extremely muscular and works out every single day, put them on a BMX bike and I guarantee you that you can bring up higher after like an hour of trying.
It’s really all technique and It doesn’t have anything to do with weight or anything. You’re just moving stuff around your BMX bike and it should be.
I’ve read some articles where they say, if you like, stand over the bike and kind of practice the motion of like picking your bike up and then pushing it forward, that it helps.
I never really did that when I was learning so I don’t know how necessary it is. You can also try using a curb or something as a helper to pop your front wheel up and get your back end up.
Some people say like giving a little pedal crank will help you lift your front wheel up. If you’re having trouble with that and you need to hit it.
it’s really just one of those things it’s going to take practice, be patient. I promise you to learn it. I’ve watched like every, how-to bunny hop.
I’ve tried to just include all the tips and advice just to make your life easier. So, this guy was how to bunny hop and I didn’t really give you a lot of tips for how to bunny hop.
