If you are 5'10" and can't touch rim you have a very low vertical. I could dunk when I was 13, but I was 5'11". I would recomend calf raises. All you need for these is a chair. You put 3-4 inches of the front of you foot on the chair, and pul up your body using the calves in that leg. Do it a lot with both legs every day, and your vertical will increase.

Not necessarily, you just need to avoid programmes with very high intensity or ones that include weights. Ask around to see if there are any that cater to younger ballers.
