Use this MyFitness calculator to accurately find your personalized Vertical Jump. Calculate how strong your squat needs to be to be able to reach a desired standing vertical by entering your desired Vertical Jump! You can also find out how high you should be able to jump given your current maximum strength level in the barbell squat (olympic style squat) by entering your 1RM squat.

Select "Calculate Vertical" in Step 3 to calculate your expected standing vertical jump number.

See if you can jump high enough to slam-dunk on an NBA regulation basketball hoop using our proprietary MyFitness Dunk Calculator.

**Note**: This vertical jump calculator is most accurate for heights that are around average.

- If you are shorter than 5'7" (173 cm) your maximum olympic squat may need to be slightly higher to reach the same vertical jump.
- If you are taller than 6'2" (188 cm) your maximum olympic squat may not need to be as high to reach the same vertical jump.
- Use your maximum below parallel squat (preferably full olympic squat) as your one repetition max squat number. This ensures movement efficiency is up to par with the calculations.
- If your vertical jump is lower than what the calculator displays for your current squat, plyometrics need to be incorporated into your workout routine to improve jumping ability.
- If your vertical jump is higher than what the calculator displays for your current squat, focus on strength building to increase your vertical.

Note: The standing vertical jump height is not the same as a run-up or step-up jump. A standing vertical jump is performed from a stand-still. Use this Vertical Jump Calculator to estimate your standing vertical jump. Your run-up or step-up vertical jump height may be higher than your standing vertical jump depending on your jumping efficiency.
