Hey all
Powerzine here.
I'm 6 ft tall and almost 19 years of age with a reach of 95". I haven't hit the gym in two years.
Back then, I could get my wrist to the rim. I squatted 95-100 kg for 1RM and deadlifted around 115kg.

I hit the gym few days ago and could do 35kg for 15 reps easily. At present I can just about get touch the rim from under it just standing. Don't know what  my running vert is.

My aim is to jump high and run fast. Looking to you guys for advice. Where do I start?

Get your squat up!- is my advice, increasing my weight in this lift has helped me improve a lot. Try and get to 1.5x bodyweight.
Also, because you're just starting again, a good idea (IMO) is to go out to the courts/track and spend 10-15mins once or twice a week just practicing your SVJ and 1 and 2foot RVJs. I found that when I decided to get back into it, my technique was gone and just getting out and practicing the entire jump - run-up, plant, arm swing - helps a lot. Look around the site for more advanced stuff like plyo workouts etc. for speed/reactivity.
Good luck!
