Just found this article on vertical leap and here is the age related vertical leap levels.
The link is here:   http://www.homeexerciseequipmenthq.com/average-vertical-jump/


Vertical Leap by Age

When it comes to the human body, one thing that everyone goes through is aging. With age, things change, including how our muscles perform. During our younger years, they are still developing all the way until we get to our 20’s and until just past 30 years old.

After that, the development stops and starts to go the other way.

The changes in our bodies muscles also show in average leaping ability as we age. During the younger years we develop and then start slowing down.

The chart below shows the average vertical leap by age for men.
        Age   Average Vertical       
      18 to 20 years old   19.5 inches      
      20 to 29 years old   20 inches      
      30 to 39 years old   17 inches      
      40 to 49 years old   14 inches      
      50 to 59 years old   11 inches
Last time I played basketball. 1995. Got to relearn all skills over again. If you're aging, don't quit BB. It may help keep you feeling younger.

In my newly posted video, stop it at :57. The blurry blue container with the pillow on top contains my workout equipment. Everything inside it can be purchased at Walmart.

Just tried a jump on my measure board. The landing was painful. I need to stop doing that until I can drop another 20 lbs.

I mixed some mustard with pancake mix to make it a paste and see how that works next time.

Duh moment on the leap board. Put some blank, white paper on it, and the mustard will show up better.
