I want to incorparate ploymetrics into my work out because I need to improve my vertical jump. What are some good plyometric routines to do? I don’t really know enough to make my own routine

i don’t know a ton about increasing vertical jump but i can give you one pointer. For at least a portion of your plyometric training, say box jumps, loop a band through your belt and put a foot into each end. When you stand up there should be a good amount of tension pulling you forward. Perform your jumps like this. It will really develop your glutes and hams much better.

platform jumps, increaseing height of the platform with each jump

Joe Defranco has an article on increasing vertical jumping ability i think. search it
