25 Best Exercises To Increase Height

FEATURED View Slideshow

Who wouldn’t want to be tall and beautiful? Well, we all want to!

Height plays an important role in enhancing the persona of an individual. No doubt, people are always desperate to increase their height in any way possible. Nowadays, a number of medicines and acupressure treatments are available which claim height gain. But, these are quite expensive and have associated side effects. Moreover, there is no 100% guarantee of success for these methods.

Thus, the best possible way to increase height is naturally combining an exercise routine with the right diet. Proper exercise helps in toning and strengthening your muscles, releasing the growth hormones which are responsible for height gain. Proper diet keeps these hormones fresh and active and helps in rebuilding themselves.

In this article, we shall look at some of the exercises that help in increasing height.

Though it is a well-known fact that the vertical body height is determined by genetic factors, it can be even influenced to an extent by physical factors like diet and exercise. Mostly, growth stops after the onset of puberty when the growth plates in the long bones in our body get fused. However, growth still continues for some people even at the age of 22-25 and so, it is possible to add a few inches to your height even after this stage by resorting to exercise to increase height.

These exercises should be adopted and practiced regularly 2-3 times a week for best results. Over exercising should be avoided as it can cause injury and will hamper the recovering capacity of the body.

  • sanghi

    i’m 5.4″ my age is 19 cn i increase my ht to 5.6″ plz hpl me by ur suggestions

    • BP

      Yes! But you need great amount of dedication and a constant motivation. I think you shouldn’t wait and start these exercise. Make sure, you do all these exercises: skipping, jogging, sprints, neck exercises at least for 1 hour a day and take a sleep of 8 hours daily, drink milk and take proteins. You are surely going to add 2-3 inches after 6 months.

  • Tushar

  • kumar

    i am kumar my height 5.4 but my girlfriend have 5.6 she have lot of love with me…………so i want to increase my height….at present my age is 22 any possibilities are here to increase my height………….

    • BP

      You can add 1 or 2 inches to your height by doing these exercises. Start taking a healthy diet. Fruits, Milk, Eggs, Proteins. You’re 22 so you have to try harder. You must do: sprints(3 or more sprints of 100 meters), skipping (~a set of 100 X 3 times), Hanging(2-3 minutes X 5 times), Neck lengthening exercises, go to bed early and take a sleep of 8 hours a day. And Most important thing people will laugh at you or whatever they do, that doesn’t matter, you stick to your routine and you can easily grow up to 2 inches after 6 months. It takes time and patience. I have grown 5’7″ to 5’8″ in 3 months. I am still doing these exercises. All the best

      Go for Limb lengthening Surgery! That’s the only way to gain 6 inches. It’s painful, long 3-4 months, costly process
