30"-32" at just shy of 5'6" and 165lbs. If I'm not mistaken I've jumped onto a 50" box from a standstill too, and broad jumped just short of 10'.

Haven't tested in years. Used to be 30" and 10' broad jump. Neither is there now. I was a two-foot jumper, though. I couldn't high jump (6' if I ran straight and dove over it) or long jump worth a crap.

It's pretty amazing to see all these numbers around 30 inches, when most of you don't specifically train to jump.

I'm convinced that weightlifting is god's gift to two footed jumpers.

Selection bias. People who are drawn to weightlifting tend to have physical attributes that also lend themselves to high vert jump.

I got 33" with three steps off one foot. I'm just starting to clean and snatch, so it'll be interesting to see if if improves much from weightlifting or if it's just natural. I could always jump pretty decently.

Hahaha

I'm pretty curious what mine is but no way to measure it currently.

Last time I tested was 24". I stand just over 5'. Squat 350+. DL 400+.

Some years ago, I used to be around 30. I'm just glad it's back to 2 feet.

It's fairly easy once you know your standing vertical reach....Just go out and touch something high from a standstill, a basketball rim is 120inches, the backboard a few inches lower, etc. Then subtract.

I always test mine on a basketball hoop, my reach is about 90 inches, so its 30 inches for me to touch the rim. I can't wait to get my palm on that rim from a standstill!
