Default Has anyone drastically improved their vert in their 20s?

im 24 now, feel like im losing a step and declining in vert.

Im barely 5'9, but very short wingspan. My standing reach probably 7'2 or 7'3.
Still I used to be able to nick rim. I could easily touch board layup, could even do it with both hands.

Now I can even barely touch the board. My peak vert was probably when I was 18 or 19.

That said never seen anyone drastically improve their vert in their 20s. Ive heard westbrook couldnt dunk until he was 17. (Still that was in his teens). Never heard of anyone not being able to dunk in their 20s and then finally be able to do so later...

Im thinking of combining explosive running and lifting weights with my legs to improve my vert. See how it goes in 3 months time...
