Re: When does your vertical start to drop?
It's pretty hard to put a definite year on it. I would say when you stop using it for what ever reason you will start noticing a decline. I know for myself I could jump higher in my early 20's but I was leaner and more active. I do from time to time work on increasing mine but it seems like as it gets higher the injuries come more often. In other words when I'm jumping higher its much harder to tolerate a bad landing so I end up rolling my ankle then I have to take it easy and my vert drops again.
