What's your vert?
 
Post what your vert is here.



You can also add your age to see how the vert compares to your age.

What has everybody done to increase their vertical leap (programs, types of training, etc.) and how much did you gain from each?

Just a hair over 40" with an approach.

About 36" straight up.

34' (run up, standstill was bout 30') was my peak when playing competively and training everyday of the week. The best dunk I could do was a windmill.

Never able to do between the legs, 360 windmills and I didn't have many variation off of alleys.

Jamal, when your 7'0", you dont exactly need alot of vertical and in fact I would advise against getting alot of air just to prevent wear and tear on your body. Kenny George is 7'8", doesnt need to jump to dunk and does just fine for hisself.

I'd say I'm about the same right now, still down from my prime, but getting back up there. I can dunk a 12lb 10inch diameter medicine ball off 1 step, 2 feet or 1. I dunked the 16lb one easily too off 1 foot, but that one was one of the sand ones that is smaller than a volleyball but obviously weighs far more. I do it to increase motor unit recruitment, before I start dunking a regular basketball
