You can achieve your height goals naturally and safely through exercise and following a routine. You gain height naturally when you exercise which increases growth hormone levels in your body. At the same time, proper nutrition maintains the balance of hormones in your body and repairs muscle tears.
Cosmetic stores and medical stores are full of products that claim to make you grow taller very quickly. It is best to seek advice from a doctor before consuming any medications or supplements that claim to increase your height. These supplements are expensive and can also have irreversible side effects. Here are some exercises you can do at home. Remember that it will take some time before you see results.
1. Hanging bar
Hanging from a bar is the most common and easiest exercise for increasing height. It strengthens upper body muscles while stretching lower body muscles. For this exercise, you will need a sturdy barbell 7 feet above the ground. Grasp it firmly and hold on for 20 seconds. You will need to stand up straight with your elbows turned outward. It is best to repeat this process 2-3 times a day for best results.
2. Forward spine stretch
This easy exercise involves sitting straight on your mat with your legs extended and your spine straight. Hold your arms straight up in the air and stretch your spine vertically for a good stretch. Once you’ve stretched to your maximum capacity, lean forward and touch your palms to your toes. Hold this position for 15-20 seconds and repeat it 2-3 times.
3. Point jump
Raise your hands, stand on your tiptoes and jump for 2 minutes
4. Bow with your head
Start by placing your hands behind your head. Standing, lean forward as much as possible. Keep your knees straight. Perform this exercise for 8-10 seconds.
5. Standing Vertical Stretch
This exercise will benefit your calf muscles. In this exercise, keep in mind that when you stretch your legs up, your weight should be on your toes.
6. Super Stretch
This exercise is the complete opposite of prostrating. First, place your hands on the back of your head/neck and lean back, arching your spine as much as possible. Do this for 10-15 seconds.
7. Wall stretch
Try to stretch your hands up as much as you can. You can stand on your tiptoes if you like to push yourself harder. Make sure to keep your spine flat and hold this position for 5-6 seconds. Repeat 3-4 times.
The exercise listed above will not only help you grow taller, but also get in shape and build an athletic body.
