Exercises to Grow Taller and Reach Maximum Height Potential

Gaining height and looking attractive is a common wish amongst all. It is true that height plays a major role in boosting the persona of a person. You will find people always desperate to gain some height. Some exercise, some eat nutritious foods, and some even wear shoes with big heels and soles in order to look tall. If you take a look at the market, you will notice that there are several medicines and multiple acupressure treatment options that promise to help you gain some height. However, most of the time these fail to give you desired results and are also quite expensive. Height increasing medicines also come with possible side effects, which may weaken your overall health.

Useful Exercises That Can Help You Grow Tall

TheHealthReview says the best and safest way to gain height is to exercise regularly and have a well-balanced and healthy diet. The right set of exercises will help boost blood flow in your body, stretch your muscles and bones, as well as make your bones stronger. Couple it with a healthy diet and there is nothing that can stop you from getting tall. However, most of you may wonder which exercises to do in order to gain height. Here are some useful workout programs that can help add some height to your existing body height.

Bar Hanging

The gravity of the earth can have an adverse effect on your overall height. It can compress your joints and spines, due to which the cartilages get squeezed. As a result of this, you get a shorter height. However, if you hang your body on a vertical bar in a very simple manner, you can easily overcome this natural problem. If you hang on a vertical bar, the weight of your body will automatically stretch your spine and also decrease the pull on your vertebras.

Dry Land Swim

Also called “alternate kick,” this exercise normally involves your lower back. All you need to do is lay down on your stomach keeping your body fully stretched. Your arms should be placed in front with both the palms facing down. Slowly raise your left arm higher than your right arm and ensure that your legs are straight. Gradually raise your right leg from the ground in the air. Stay in this position for almost four seconds and then repeat the same posture with the other arm and leg.

Pelvic Shift

This workout is pretty simple and helps to stretch your body up and down from your hips and spine. Simply lay down on your back and place your arms and shoulders firmly on the ground. Slowly fold your knees and bring your feet as close to your butt as possible. Arch your back in order to thrust your pelvis in the upward direction. Hold onto this position for almost 20 to 30 seconds. This exercise will make your front hips more flexible and also help you stretch further.

Cobra Stretch

This is basically a yoga posture. The sole purpose of performing this yoga pose is to stretch your spinal cord and make it flexible and supple, at the same time. This yoga stretch is very useful and beneficial for the overall growth of your cartilage located between your vertebrae. As a result of this, your vertical height will increase. Lie on the ground with your face facing down and your palms touching the ground under your shoulders. Slowly arch your spine up starting from your chin to make an elevated angle. Make sure to arch back as much as possible. Try and do this yoga stretch three or four times with each lasting from 5 seconds to 30 seconds.
