Healthy Ways to Increase Your Height

Updated on March 15, 2012

Healthy Ways to Increase Your Height

My nephew was not satisfied with his height a year ago. He was 25 years old. Then with the help of a health professional, he followed the following tips on how to grow taller, some growing taller exercises, which seem to work well on him. After keeping practice for one year or so he is now about 3 inches taller than before, which he thought impossible since he is beyond normal physiological developmental phase.

Here I’d like to share his experience with those who want to increase their height. You must always keep in mind that my nephew had put so much effort into those growing taller exercises before he reaped the benefits.

Before we get started, let’s first learn about the mechanism: how do those exercises work? You may be eager to know how growing taller exercises work. That’s because they can help to improve your posture, and lengthen your spine, thighs and skins. Besides, they can help to release human growth hormone (HGH) within your body to some extent. You just need to know there is a hope that you can increase your height even after you are in your twenties.

Now let’s move on to the key points. I will share with you the exact methods my nephew has depended on in his daily life to spur him on his way up the height ladder. It should be pointed out that warming-up is included in my nephew's exercise plan. Why? When doing sports the top concern is to avoid injury, so warming-up is an essential part of the main sports. My nephew’s favorite is stretching himself, which can help him to warm up his muscles to avoid potential injury and to increase the efficiency of his exercises. For this reason it is of great importance to make sure that you have some warming-up exercises before and after you start.

My nephew mainly depends on three methods.

The first one is ROPE JUMPING. All he needs is a jump rope. It is not a difficult exercise for most people. This exercise involves him jumping up and down, which can help break the micro-fibers in his shins. When the micro-fibers heal they grow back stronger and longer to sustain more strain and pressure. If you don’t like rope jumping other sports involving you jumping up down is also beneficial.

Another method that my nephew has used to break down the micro-fibers is SPRINTING. His experience is that: he sprints a short distance, and has a stop and then sprints again for about 10-20 minutes. Look out! This exercise may not be suitable for all people.

Only focusing on breaking the micro-fibers is not enough. My nephew also tries to stretch his body. His favorite is SWIMMING, which turns out to be an effective way to help him to do it. When a person is in water he or she will of course undergo less pressure because of the lifting of the water.

When he keeps doing sports, my nephew also emphasizes the adequate rest. Just like warming-up, adequate rest is also important when participating in growing taller exercises. Without them a person will definitely end up injuring himself quickly that he will never expect. So arrange the exercises in a scientific way. And it is suggested that one should consult the health professionals.

I hope you can get some useful information from my nephew’s experience. You should see to it that you adopt those that you are in favor of. Otherwise you will lose the incentive to increase your height. Besides, you must put in enough work and stick to them for a long time before they work. Of course, necessary guidance is also suggested. By following the adequate principles and with enough effort and with the right method it is quite possible for you to add 3-6 inches to your height!

      It just goes to show that where there is a will there is a way. I am not sure I am that desperate to gain in height but I have been that desperate to lose weight. I wish your nephew the best. -Jaggedhopper
