We have to accept that tall people have many advantages compared to shorter people. But if you are worried about your height, this is not the time to despair because exercises that can help you grow taller at any age already exist! Yes, this must be the one that you have been missing and these exercises are here now to help you increase inches to your height.
The secret here is to work out the key muscles that can help in increasing the height of a person. The ‘grow taller’ exercise programs are somehow developed to strengthen these key muscles which help in improving the posture and the quality of blood flow and growth hormones in the body. Growth hormone production can be intensified by intense anaerobic exercises such as swimming and cycling. Another set of routines which we believe and we have proven to increase height are the stretching exercises. Stretching exercise programs for growing taller are specially developed to take effect on the back and abdominal muscles. In this article, learn more about the different routines that are included in the ‘grow taller’ exercise program.
First, we have to learn about in-vertebral discs. The in-vertebral discs are located in the spinal column and they are attached together by means of cartilages. When we perform these exercises, the compression of these discs is reduced because the cartilages are thickened. So in order to achieve this effect, it is necessary to perform stretching exercises especially those that will require your body to become flexible.
Now, here are some of the most effective exercises that will help you increase inches in height:
The reason why it is easier to fall down that to stretch up is because of a natural downward force called gravity. Gravity pulls us towards the ground and somehow, this has an effect in human growth because it has the effect of keeping our spine compressed. Without work-out, our spines will not be stretched but rather squeezed by the effects of the consistent downward pull.
With the two-arm hang, let the obstacle itself help you grow taller! In this exercise, you are like counteracting the effect of gravity on your spines. By being elevated and anchored from above, the force will be focused on your lower torso instead of your back bone. Therefore, the weight on your torso pulled by gravity will stretch your spines and reduce the tension between the discs in it. By doing this exercise regularly, a person can reach to up to 2 inches added height.
To do this exercise, a person has to find something overhead where he or she can hang. It can be a horizontal metal bar, pipe, or anything that is strong enough to support your weight. If the bar to which want to hang to is not that high, you can slightly bend you knees not to touch the ground. Grasp the bar tightly and make sure that the back of your hands are facing you.
By relaxing your body while hanging, the more you can feel the effect of gravity pulling you down. This will give the force a better pull. Hanging for about 15 to 30 seconds is advisable especially to beginners. You can do repetitions if possible but you must do it at least 3 times. As a variation, you can also use ankle weights to add more downward pull.
Others refer to this as Dry Land Swim because you are to imitate a swimmer minus the water. This stretching exercise targets your back muscles. Just like a real swimmer, you can do this exercise in either front stroke (lying on your stomach) or backstroke (lying on your back).
First, lie down straight on your stomach and then stretch your arms in front of you. Now, stretch your left arm farther than your right arm and your right leg lifted above the ground while straightly stretched. Hold onto this position for about 4 seconds or more. When you lower them, do it slowly. After doing it on the left arm and right leg, do the same with the other arm and leg. Do this routine repeatedly for 3 times. After doing the front stroke swimmer, do the reverse by lying on your back.
In this exercise, your body will look like a bridge sliding downward. But more than how it looks, it can give you quick effects of stretch as it will manifest by the way you feel after the routine. The effect will be felt specifically in the spine and hips.
You can start by lying comfortably on your back in a straight manner. The next move is to bend your knees slowly moving your feet towards your body and raising your hips until feet are directly under your knees or buttock. Once you achieve that position, the next thing to do is to create an arch with your back and pelvis thrusting upward. Stay in this manner for about 30 seconds and do repetitions to at least 3 times. When executing this stretching exercise, make sure that you are of healthy condition and free from stress.
