Like any other exercises for a fit and healthier body, these ‘grow taller’ exercises need to be partnered with good sleeping habits and a balanced diet. Get rid of bad toxins for a while which come from smoking and drinking alcohol as these may block the natural processes involved in growth and development.
No need for a prompt time schedule since the objective of these exercises is to gain height naturally. You can, however, have a personal journal by your side to keep track of your height improvement as you begin.
These ‘grow taller’ exercises involve a lot of stretching. Before you start, it is especially important to consult your doctor to avoid any injury. When you are ready, go over these exercises to see which give you the best results in the coming weeks.
Stand up with your hands held together behind your neck. Bend your head upwards and back and stretch as far as possible. You can hold this for 5-15 seconds.
The Super Stretch
While standing up, reach your hands up as high as you can as you lean slightly back. Feel the stretch in your lower spine. The super stretch can be done standing up or lying down. You can do this for 4-7 seconds.
The Basic Leg Stretch
This leg stretch works both your spine and legs. You need to sit flat on the floor. While sitting down, spread your legs far apart. Reach for your toes on your right leg. Try to keep your knees as straight as possible. Now move into reaching for your toes on the other leg. Be sure to keep your spine straight and move from your hips. Do not arch the upper spine. Each repetition should last between 6-15 seconds.
The Cat Stretch Exercise
Drop your hands and knees on the floor with your arms locked out. Inhale normally as you flex your spine down and bring your head up. Exhale as you bring your spine up into an arched position as you bring your head down. Repeat this position for 3-8 seconds.
As ‘Jason – the short guy’ I’ve used and seen my fair share of height increasing trash. But since starting a new exercise program tailored to getting taller I’ve already gained 3 inches in height over 6 months. For more info see my site: http://gettall.weebly.com
