Alan Barch Jr. Breaks Vertical Jump World Record

September 6, 2009

Vertical Jump

Alan Barch Jr. is a 5’9″ athletic trainer who recently recorded the world’s first OFFICIAL
50 inch vertical jump.

This has to be the highest vertical jump ever recorded.

Many athletes have been RUMORED to have a 50 inch vertical leap, but they have never bothered to get tested.

Alan is the first who has OFFICIALLY been tested and measured.

It’s amazing to see how high he gets off the ground.

Here are the official results of his test:

Height: 5’9″

Standing reach: 7 feet 5.5 inches

Standing vertical jump: 50 inches

Running vertical jump: 54.5 inches

If this doesn’t inspire you to train harder, nothing will!

So if you want to take your vertical to the next level, read my review of the
best vertical jump programs right now.

Pick the one that best suits you, and follow it to the T (my favorite vertical jump program is the Jump Manual).

Challenge yourself to see how close you can get to Alan’s incredible feat.

        nate robinson doesnt really jump that high, he has great timing! look at the dunk videos! his head isnt that close to the rim on any dunks ever! alan birch jr puts his head at the rim at only 2 inches taller then robinson.

      Josh,

      Never say a group can’t do something when huge evidence points to the contrary From all the youtube videos of white leapers and dunkers, not to mention that 3 white men won – Gold, Silver, Bronze – at the 2004 Olympics, it would seem that that white men can, indeed, jump…the highest.

      Dats a lie that guy from france I known all around the world for havin a 60+ inch and so is wayne clark a ex globetrotter (my uncle so I witnessed it myself)the flash (R.I.P) etc so don’t get me wrong that’s impressive but I can name at least 20 more 60 inch leapers.

        But that has not been official. Some guy on here said it was on Guinness book of records, but he didn’t leave a reference and I haven’t seen anything like that.

        You’ll have to show me that list of 20 people who can jump over 60 inches. I know the golden child has maybe over a 50 inch vertical, but you and I both know the hype that goes into telling everyone how high you can jump. It’s easy to get overemotional about it and over estimate. the vertec usually doesn’t lie.

        that globetrotter who dunked like 12 feet was also like 6 foot 7 so it wasnt that impressive on a scale of vertical leap! he may have had a 47 inch vert but not even close to even 60 inch vert

    These are still pictures,not video. I find that extremely fishy(to say the least).And this guy has a body builders physique. You rarely see that type of vertical on people with that build. Im real skeptical right now…

      no… check out NFL’s overall average vertical… it’s around 35 or so… which is freakin high… because they are all big.. but do tons of squat for thigh muscles for running and physique stuff.. obviously…

      muscle = vertical…

      That’s an myth. Powerlifters/Olympic weighlifters typically have fairly decent verticals. A few years back on the NBA “Celebrity” Dunk contest there was a poewlefiter who had a 40+” vert. Granted hw was only 5’9″ and could do nothing but a 2 hand power dunk, it is still impressive as he was also around 245. It comes with all the squats, deadlifts and powercleans they do. The coninuous motion of “throwing”weight back up.

      He’s got other videos that actually show him jumping and his head is just about as high as these pics. Here’s the link. Just look at how far his feet are off the ground.

    We need to see video of Alan Barch jump… i’ve never “seen” anyone go over 48″ …

    on the basketball court, i punched 48″ vertical jump while running back and forth doing figure 8′s frm basketball goal to goal when 24 yrs old, I’m now 63. i’l like to begin working your exercises to max out once again. I’m 5’7″ 180 lbs

    If you dropped me off of a platform above I could also appear to jump 4 feet. Lets see the video of him actually jumping or I call it a hoax.

    I think that it is good to see what is achievable, but what was his starting vertical leap before it grew to 50″? How long did it take him to get to 50″? Overall this is inspiring.

    Nate Robinson can’t jump that high, he has good timing on dunks! I’m never seen Nate Robinson even come close to putting his elbow over the run! Nate is overrated! Nate is an amazing athlete!! A freak if nature!! But definitly doesn’t have a 50 inch vertical!!
