Bad *** jump! I saw Kevin--he was a roommate of mine in college--post something about 60 inches on facebook, but didn't investigate. Very cool! He's a strong guy with great strength to weight ratio and quite explosive.

That was a great jump!

Just to clarify, jumping has little to do with absolute strength. It has much more to do with rate of force production.

Re: 60" Standing Box Jump....

I love seeing jumps like that. Makes me almost want to try it till I remember what falling backwards on a 54" one felt like in college
