    Do I need someone with a measuring tape next to me to tell me how high I jump?

    set up a measuring tape (a real peice of tape preferred) with the numbers on there. with your arm extended, get the measurement. record the measurement. from there, take a leap and touch the tape on the wall and see where it lands, record the measurement. then take the vertical leap measurement and subtract it by the arm extended measurement!
