I’ve got a good standing vert. Any lower and I get lazy on the tuck part of the jump.
Did you see Mike post in Nick journal?
In my opinion, setting hurdles high, even for advanced athletes is really just for showing off. It doesn’t indicate how high you jump and in cases of women or less elastic athletes, it just leads to cockeyed squirming clearance techniques and / or hit-a-hurdle-and-fall-on-your-face injuries.
In fact, watching the box jumps on youtube where people set up boxes at 70 inches and then brag about it as if that’s there vertical is a pet peeve of mine because the ability to jump on to something high is just as much about what you do with your legs and posture to make clearance or land on the high object as it is about actually jumping high.
There’s certainly a time and a place for testing limits on those types of things and I don’t overlook the potential benefits of accomplishing the seemingly impossible but I think even with those things considered the risks outweigh any benefits.
