What Would Happen if You Bunnyhop in Real Life?

In games, you do a whole host of crazy things, but what if, hypothetically you want to do game things in real life?

Games allow you to break the narrative is some interesting ways, or just do some interesting things in some questionable ways. Generally games allow you to perform superhuman feats, without even breaking a sweat. Like bunnyhopping, admirably demonstrated below. But is this even possible in real life?

What is Bunny Hopping?

I'm sure most of you know what bunny hopping is, but to give a quick explanation of it, bunny hopping is when you essentially jump in a specific way to skate across the floor giving you the ability to move much faster than the game initially intended.

Is it even possible in real life?

Well no, hopping will only slow you down, because when you jump you have to, at the very least, use double the force needed for standing. You have to push against gravity to get air born, when you land all your body weight in now on your legs, even rabbits need to land then load their muscles to spring off again. This means that every time you land you have lost all the upward momentum because you just went down. But if you did try to bunny hop, you would just look like a person trying to be a Rabbit.

Rabbits can hop because their legs and muscles are built to be able to constantly, and quickly, repeat that action, but human legs are can't.

    It's not twice the force. Any force in excess of your weight will cause you to accelerate upward (i.e. any force over your usual standig force). However, the more your force is directed to make you go up, the less you are using to go forward. The optimum angle will depend on the force of friction between your foot and the surface. Ideally, you want to go at the steepest possible angle without actually slippng, i.e. you want to be as far from bunny hopping as possible.

    But to overcome the standing force you need create an opposite force equal to the standing force. Which would give the result of doubling your standing force or have I just understood it wrong?
