Best Exercises to Increase Height – Naturally Very Faster

The height of a person is actually decided by genetics. But, there are a few ways in which this height can be altered a bit to make you taller. Exercise is the best method. There are a number of exercises that can help you gain a few additional inches. Read on for a few of them, which can be really useful.

Bar Hanging:

hanging on bars exercise

Gravity compresses your joints and spines which affects your height by squeezing the cartilage. This makes you look shorter. To combat this problem, you must try the vertical bar hanging. When you hang on a bar, the weight of your lower body pulls down your body and stretches it. The pull on the vertebras is decreased, and your spine is stretched. It can show up to 1 to 2 inches’ gain in height over a period of time. Hang on the time for about 20 seconds, and repeat it three times.

Cat Stretch:

The pelvic bone should touch the floor, elbows should be straight and shoulder must be high. Stay in the position for 3 to 8 seconds.

    These are really good tips to increase your height, but it require continous efforts to increase your height. By the way you have written good article, I liked the way you explained. Keep it up 🙂

  2. Angan says:

    From all the exercises, jumping rope and swiming has shown to eleviate height upto 6inches when done on a regular basis for a long period of time may be an year or two and the results are permanent as both wil eleviate the calf muscle which is also known as peripherial hear or pelvic muscle in the lower leg…however the other exercises i.e stretching the spine with different postures too good to enhance height…but this increase of height doesn’t last long. The spine squeezes with time again. Due to its high flexibility it tends to squeeze from the stretched level. It means this technique is duly temporary. Bt the former two of legs are permanent. Remember any thing done in excess is harmful, so dn’t stress the calf muscle too much, limited is always good. Otherwise there is a risk to get Shin Splints which is painful.

After that i do 10 mins of Cycling on a hard difficulty with a lot of effort.
