Learn New, Ways To Grow Taller



Top five stretching exercises to grow taller

There are many stretching exercises you can do to increase your height. In this article I'm going to list the top five natural ways to grow taller.

Number one, the twist.

The objective of this exercise is to twist the spine some people find this movement difficult as the spine has grown very inflexible throughout their lives. The lower spine is usually the most un-flexible part of the spine, this is due to our seated positions most of the time. To do the twist you need to stand in a doorway facing the frame of the door, put your feet firmly inside the door frame and twist your body from left to right, remember to twist the neck and head to as we need to stretch the whole length of the spine.

Number two, the hang

This exercise gained me two inches in height, and it's one of the simplest stretching exercises you can do to grow taller. You simply need to hang your body from a height, whether you hang on to a pull bar, goalpost or tree they are all the same. You just need to hang there for a few minutes at a time. This gives the discs in your spine time to decompress, it's also great for re-aligning a bad posture as the body is being stretched into its natural shape. What we are doing is using gravity to get taller rather than letting it make us shorter.

Number three, the shoulder lift

This exercise is a bit more complex but well worth the effort, lying on the floor face down with a pillow, try not to twist your neck to the side. You'll feel your shoulders and arms pulling down towards the floor due to gravity. All you have to do is lift your shoulders and arms entirely off the floor for 10 seconds, repeat this three times every morning and every evening. If you can master this exercise you'll start to see results fast within 3 to 4 weeks, this exercise works by stretching a muscle that is often very weak in the majority of people. The muscle in the centre of the spine becomes slack due to years of sitting in chairs and at office desks, eventually the muscle gets a week and your body starts to sag ,you lose height.

Number four, side twists

This exercise can be done standing up or sitting down, place both hands on your shoulders so that your thumbs are behind your neck and your fingers in front of your shoulders. Inhale while slowly twisting your body to the right then the left, as you twist allow your head you follow. This exercise stimulates and stretches the upper spine, and this fantastic stretching exercise to grow taller.

Number five, sleep

Sleep is a fantastic way of increasing your height, you need to get 8 hours of sleep a night for your body to function at its best. The body grows and repairs itself at night, when we don't get enough sleep our bodies cannot function in the way they should and it can hinder our growth patterns.
