Excercises are about one of the most effective ways to add to your height. Even if you swallow HGH (Human Growth Hormone) pills every day, eat balanced diet, sleep and rest well, the resultant effects as it relates with your height may not be as noticeable as when you complement it with body stretching exercises, particularly when you are way past your teen years.
The bones of the body actually determine our heights and it has been proven that these can stretch up till our late 20’s. Prove abound that about 35% of the human height is resting in the spinal cord.
There are many sports that can add 2 to 3 inches to your height. Top of the list is swimming, volleyball, basketball, etc. These sports encourage the stretching of the spine considerably, particularly because they involve using the arms and stretching the spinal cord regularly during training and in actual games.
In-as-much as you don’t participate in such sports, daily exercises can suffice Some of the best, yet very simple exercises that can enhance height include:
Touch Toes: Stand erect with the hands straight above the head, bend over and try to touch your toe but keep the knees straight.. The first few attempts might feel difficult, but with constant trial, you will master it.
Hanging: Because of our unique nature of standing erect, gravity keeps pressing up down constricting the backbone and joints, compacting the gristle and making us less tall. To counter the effects of gravity, make it a habit to carry your whole weight on your hands with hanging to swings.
Pull Ups: These exercises are good for the back, neck, shoulders and biceps, it helps in gently massaging the bones on the upper part of the body thereby stretching them. To promote HGH, combine hanging and pull ups on a daily basis.
Bow Down: Try stretching by placing the back firmly against the wall after a brief warm up on the bed, raise the hands and just stretch. Be sure not to pull too hard but keep the back stuck to the wall the whole time.
Pelvic Shift: The effect of this exercise is awesome, it relaxes the pelvic and stretches it too Lay flat on your back with the shoulders and arms securely planted on the floor and bend the knees drawing both feet toward the bum and curve your back; this will push up the pelvic forward
