In the spring after a squat focused training program I was up to 32. Fell back to 27 after months of limited weight training.

Agreed. Makes sense too. I wish I could get some carryover for mine. I guess it's just a matter of time. Just need to patient and keep on practicing.

All the best,
Arden

Mine is 28" from a standstill and 33" from a 3 step run up. I'm 5'11 270 and 34 years old. Years of competing in strongman and just generally being athletic have basically kept it where it was as a 220 lb senior in highschool.

You've got me curious now. I never tested it in high school, but I could dunk pretty easily from a standstill and hurdled a 66" high jump bar, but I had really good hurdling technique and flexibility, which probably mattered a lot more than jumping ability. I jumped onto a roughly 60" concrete wall at a local park for fun a few times last winter, but then stopped that kind of training when I slipped and split open both shins to the bone. But again, I think that's more flexibility than jumping ability. I know I can't dunk any more.

Anyway, I might test it over the weekend now. You notice with basketball players that the transition to the 30s is when they seem to lose their explosive jumping ability. I turned 29 a few days ago. It would be interesting to see if I could ever get it back. I never touched a weight in high school. All I did was run.
