I can barely touch rim with my jump right now and would really like to increase my vertical jump. I regularly run, do squats, and do toe raises with weights. Do you have testimonials of exercises that significantly improve your vertical?

Look into Box drills and concentric box jumps. This help greatly with vertical jumps. If you want to really increase power try adding a weighted vest to this routine. This some of the exercises I use with good results. Be carefule though, you want to have a good core strength foundation to prevent injury. These exercises put a lot of stress on the joints so try to take it easy especially with the wieghts. A good start is 10% of your body wieght is what you want to start off with on the vest. (when you get their of course.)
Plyometrics consist of several different exercises. But should not be overlooked for increasing your vertical jump.0
build up your squats, lunges and deadlifts. focus in increasing weight, this builds your strength. do box jumps or just jumping on platforms. this practices your explosiveness so you can use the strength to its potential.0
