    I'm about 5'7 to 5'8, and weight currently at 161 lbs. In high school, my vertical was about 22 inches (no running, just from standing to jumping), but i was also much lighter then (close to 140 lbs). Haven't tested it lately but it hasn't seemed to decrease that much. I'm not that old though, still in last year of college, so here's hoping the hops last!

    You're giving me the shivers, now!! Psychics always do that...

    But on a (relatively) serious note,
    Most pro players seem to have 4 legs and 4 arms, so you're not that far off, in any case...

    It's lucky you're not afraid of worms, what with where you live and all that. If you want to be as quick as the pro's you need to up your spice (melange) dosage...are we off topic yet?

    Nah, that'd be illegal substances etc...
    It's WATER that really gives me the shivers!
    On topic however, how high can I jump? Oh around 18". Do I win anything?

    This seems like a very trivial thing that you want to improve on. Are you having problems with your jump smash? Is it not steep enough? Does it go out or into the net too often? Surely there are more elvated things you can work on in your badminton game than this!?

    Cheers

Size:  3.3 KB. Looked up at what height a bball backboard hangs and that should put me at 36-37" range in the good ole days (well I wasn't even training then at the end of high school years).

    This thread is 6 years old, so I'm not sure you're likely to get a reply .

    It was dead and buried until for some totally unknown reason a 15 year old female football fan joined the forum and decided to bump it with her first and only post. Yep, makes no sense to me either .

    Vertical jump is used as a physical test for many different sports (soccer, football, hockey etc) these sports don't necesserely involve alot of jumping but the vertical jump is a very good indicator of lower body explosive strenght and power so having a low/poor vertical jump indicates that not only you can't jump high, but most likely you can't run/move fast either. The vertical jump also has the advantage of being very easy to measure so it's a very useful tool of comparison.

    The thread is obviously pretty old but I prefer to see this instead of new threads being started about old questions like "how can I improve my smash???"

    Some interesting statistics that can be used as a comparison:
    Poul-Eric Hoyer Larsen had a vertical jump of 21 inches in 1988 when he started his special training for the olympics. In 1991, at the end of his training program, his vertical jump was 25.4 inches.

    The malaysian team did a study on their elite male players (ranked between 2-11 in the world for either MD or MS) and their average VJ was 16.9 inches WITHOUT using their hands which would translate to about 19.5 inches with their hands. The highest score on the elite squad was 19.7 inches (w/out the hands once again) which would convert to about 22.7 inches when using the hands.

    Hope it helps
