I don't even know exactly how high the jump in the video is, but i'm basing it on my best jump two weeks ago when i touched rim.

The title of the video is "Legit 36-37'' SVJ"???

It's easy to trick yourself into thinking you're a lot faster or better jumper than x many months ago thanks to this new training or whatever it may be, but unless you measure performance properly you can't make those claims. For example, you say you're faster - go run a 100m at a comp or a film a 40yd dash and see what you get. Then you can say if you're fast or not. Shorter guys always look fast at the start because of high leg turnover but it doesn't necessarily mean quick times. Again, the jump 'looks' good and you 'look' fast but we need numbers, preferably of tests that are widely performed. That SL broad jump off a box might be excellent but I wouldn't know because I've never seen anyone else do it.

I typically don't record myself on basketball courts because I'm never really on them lol.

I fixed the second link for the 7'6 single leg standing broad. I also got a 10'2 bilateral standing broad jump a few days ago in testing. I shall record myself doing a bilateral broad tonight or tomorrow. For the basketball court SVJ recording, should I buy a tripod for my phone or something? How do you guys normally do it?

Also, last I checked, I ran a 4.55-4.60 40 yard dash according to my Freelap timing system. No one else who tested with me was able to get sub 5.0.

And the reason I improved so much is that my ankle fully healed and that I went from 22% on a DEXA scan to possibly ~13% now (4 months later).

Nice work. You look heaps better in the 2nd photo!

4.55 40 yard is quick. I agree with acole though. The way to get the most objective measurements is to go out and jump at a ring or go to an open athletics day and run a 60m or 100m. For reference of how quick a 4.5 40 yard is this. 40 yards is 36m. Most people are at or near their top speed after 36m so assuming you had decent top speed you'd be running 60m in around 7 seconds. If you can run the 60m in <7 seconds you should be able to run 100m in <11 seconds- not many people can. Also with sprinting just losing the body fat makes a huge difference!

I basically sprinted every other day (20 sets of 40 yards) for two months. I followed the protocol in this study:
https://www.researchgate.net/publication/230902161_The_effect_of_40_m_repeated_sprint_training_on_physical_performance_in_young_elite_male_soccer_players

It yielded insane improvements in speed, so I decided to follow it lol. Sprinting also made me really lean.



I also did a TON of hip flexor work (cable knee drives) and got much stronger at them.

So I messed up my ankle in early December hence the absence. I just started working out again and my numbers are wayy down. SVJ is down to 32"...I was just benching, lat pulling, and rowing and got really fucking strong at those. 215 bench at 140 right now.

How does one improve the single leg running vert? I tried it the other day and was around the 33" mark. Since my shin splints are gone it went up i guess.

Got my SVJ up to 39"!!! Ankle is fully healed and muscle memory kicked in like CRAZY. I grabbed rim from standing today!!

The jump mat said 37.4" on this jump with dumbbells, but according to hang time it was 36.5".

How many times does it need to be said: just film the freaking rim touch! The jump looks high but you're swinging dumbbells for some bizarre reason and I have no idea how many inches that adds. You look like you have a good SVJ but you're obscuring it with all the weirdness.

They don't add any inches. Maybe subtract like an inch or two...Try it yourself. I would have to get someone else to record me the few times I'm on a basketball court. I don't play ball at my medical school because everyone thinks I'm 5'8-5'9 in my elevator shoes lol (and you gotta wear normal shoes while balling).

You can just prop your phone up with a water bottle or something, you don't need someone to record it. Anyway if you really want to track your progress you should put a little more effort into getting an exact measurement.

Super impressive jump though, I wonder what effect jumping with dumbbells actually has. I remember seeing an exercise where someone swung dumbbells down, dropped them, and did an SVJ. They were able to get a higher jump because of the more powerful stretch reflex.

Haven't done anything in the last 4 months, but my ankle and back are feeling perfect now!! Just did a trial jump last night and felt really high.
