What the others said. If you want to see how high you can be jumping right now, stop lifting weights.

The next 2 weeks should consist of jumping every day (doesn't have to be heaps, just high intensity) for the first week. Then on the second week, jump every other day. Then rest for 2 days. THEN test your vertical.
RVJ: 32", only 18" to go!
RVJ: 35", only 15" to go!

What really helped me IMMEDIATELY turn my squat strength into a higher vertical was jumping againt band resistance.

Upped my squat, both low bar and high bar over a couple of years. Vertical stayed at 23". Jumped with that gimmicky looking Power Jumper and got to 25" that very day. Got as high as 28" over the next few weeks.

I'm sure you could get the same effect from using minibands.

Ok i def wanna try this at some stage. But i only have a single pair of bands at a given thickness but i'll get a pair and see.
Making a new strength setpoint of 75/100/150 on OHP/BP/BS.
