The Best Grow Taller Stretching Exercises

Updated on July 10, 2010

To help a person grow taller, there are various different products and techniques they could try.  There is even the option of surgery however this is an excruciatingly painful and costly process which may involve several procedures.  There are different ways to get taller including having the limb lengthening surgery, but for some people this just isn’t an option.  Nothing is guaranteed with surgery and there are other ways to add to your height, including practicing a couple effective grow taller stretching exercises.

 One of the best exercises is the lunge.  This helps to tone the glutes and thighs, improving posture at the same time so you’re instantly taller.  To perform a proper lunge you need to start in a standing position and then step forward with your right leg, bending down with it until your right thigh is parallel with the floor.  Hold this position for a count of five and then return to your starting position and repeat with the opposite leg.

 You can always tell if you’re doing lunges correctly because you should feel a slight but not painful burning sensation in the thighs of your legs.  Remember that doing ten lunges properly is going to offer you much better results than doing one hundred improperly so it’s important to focus and make sure your body alignment is correct when exercising.  Another of the best grow taller stretching exercises is the toe touching exercise.  This is an exercise that most people remember from their days in high school.

 Well it still works just as well and you should start in a sitting position on the floor with your legs spread apart.  Then you take both your hands and reach down towards your toe, keeping your arms straight as you go.  Especially if you’re a bit older in age you may not be so flexible anymore and the last thing you want to do is sprain a muscle.  Over time as you continue to practice and grow taller, you’ll find yourself becoming more flexible.

 Don’t expect any miracles though, because even the most effective grow taller exercises will take time to show results.  Eating a nutritious diet will help you get the results you want faster.  Keep track of your growth with a height chart.  This way you can see your progress as you go along and can stay motivated and dedicated to your workout plan.
