I've just started learning properly. After practicing for just a few days i can already see improvements in how high i can hop. There's no 'strength' involved, per se, seeing as i've seen children ride. If you can lift your own body weight, you can bunny hop as high as you need to. Afterall, it's basically just a jump with a bike attached to you. Everybody else after you've got the hop down is just body movement.

Yeah, that happens when i try and manual.. You've just got to get the balance right.

Honestly, i was asking these kinds of questions when i first started, and it was annoying that all i heard was "Just practice". But it really is the way to go. Practice practice practice. Watch some "how to" videos if you need to, to help you with technique, and then just get out there and try it over and over and over until you've got it down.

If you're going to ride, you're going to have to no worry about falling off. You'll fall off a lot. You'll even hurt yourself. But if you're scared of that, you won't do as well as you can.

not really theres a bunch of young small kids who I doubt are very strong but can hop high. if you are worried about strength one of the best ways to get stronger for bunny hopping is to... bunnyhop. if you ride enough you will eventually build all the strength you need to do whatever it is you want with some very special exceptions for advanced riders
