That's why, in this article, I want to show you several examples of exercises that can make you taller.
To begin with, let me quickly explain why the correct exercises and workouts can make you taller.
Not only can they lengthen your limbs - namely your spinal column and your legs - they can also stimulate your body to release more growth hormones.
- The bone discs in your spinal column may not be properly aligned.
Plus, the spinal column may not be as flexible as it could.
Through the right exercises, the bone discs' alignment can be enhanced and the spine's flexibility can be increased, thus making you taller - usually by several inches.
- Our leg bones have spaces in between.
The right exercises can make use of these spaces to literally lengthen your legs, thus increasing your height, as well.
- Lastly, certain intensities of workouts can stimulate your body to release more height growth hormones.
Tests have been conducted where it was clearly measurable that this is the case.
In this exercise, you simply try to touch the floor with your hands.
However, your knees have to be locked so that you have completely straight legs.
The goal is to place the hands flat on the floor, which usually takes time and practice to do.
The reason why it's my favorite exercise example is that it's also a good way to test your spine's flexibility: as a general rule, the further down you can bend, the more flexible is your spinal column.
And a flexible spinal column, in return, is more susceptible to being lengthened.
Here are two more really great exercise examples that can make you taller: swimming and biking.
- When in water, the pressure that gravity places on your spinal column is removed, thus allowing it to decompress.
Moreover, with every stroke your body receives a good stretch - that's why doing breast strokes is the recommended swimming style for our purposes.
- When you go biking, raise the seat a little bit.
This way, you have to extend your legs every time you push the pedal, which consequently lengthens your legs over time.
Not only the type of exercise is important; the intensity and execution of any given exercise are crucial factors, as well.
Moreover, you need to follow a very sound and healthy diet to provide your body with all the necessary nutrients to build, grow and regenerate along the way.
Exercising is a crucial part but without the right diet and even sleep, you can't make significant height gains.
I hope these exercise examples have shown you that a little bit.
