Default PM members, what is your vertical leap?

I'm curious how high all the o-lifters on this site can jump from a standstill (vertical jump).

Post your vertical leap!

I'll start - 31 inches
bodyweight= 165lbs @ 5 feet 10 inches height
max back squat= 350lbs

my o-lift numbers suck because of technique at the moment, snach= 145lbs c@j=205lbs

very nice!

anything over 30 inches puts you in pretty elite company, im impressed with everyone. here's hoping we can all get to 40 inches one day!

after seeing this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UBkR...eature=related (wfs) it seems like anything is possible if we train hard enough.

I shock some people with this one.

I'm 39 - barely 5'10" at 250 pounds and can still dunk a volley ball.

best I've ever tested out is 35" and that was a few years ago but my ability to jump hasn't lessened any. I do a lot of leaping and bounding in training for my silly hobby/sport. I can easily bound onto 40"+ boxes.

Best back squat = don't know. Likely about 250 to 275 kilos with only my Rehbands on. But I'm not gonna try it.

Best olympic lifts = power snatched 105 kilos. Squat clean about 150kgs. Technique sucks on full movements, but I'm getting better with time and effort.

All the best,
Lifting heavy stuff is fun and relative......
