15 Top Exercises To Increase One's Height. by SEYIKP(m): 10:01pm On Dec 07, 2014
Height is something that many people strive for and it can be helpful to
get around your day. If you want to get a little taller but think you are
stuck with your current height, you may be wrong. With just a few simple
exercises you could increase your height and start reaching for the stars.
1) Swimming
www.lifefitness.com
Swimming is an exercise that requires plenty of stretching and reaching,
which can gradually increase your height. However you will need to swim
often and for long periods in order to see significant results. You should
try and plan for two hours daily if you want to increase your height.

2) Hanging Exercises
www.leanitup.com
These exercises are just what they sound like. You will need to hang
down from a bar and let your body stretch. You can also hang and then
bring your legs up parallel to the ceiling to create and even better stretch.
You will want to keep this up for several repetitions and several times a
week.

3) Touch Toes
www.fitdaily.com
It’s time to go back to these treasured years of gym class and touch
your toes. If you can’t touch your toes, you’re not alone and just stretch
as far as you can. If you missed gym class you perform this exercise by
standing straight and then bending down to touch your toes. You should
hold the stretch for a few seconds each time.

6) Leg Stretches

There are a number of different types of stretches for legs and any
stretches that work the calves will be very useful in increasing height.
One good calf exercise is to stand parallel to a wall and place your hands
on the wall. Put your weight on your hands and then slowly move one leg
closer to the wall. You should feel a stretch in your calf. Hold the position
for 20 to 30 seconds and repeat it a few times

For this exercise you are going to put your body into the shape of a
table. While it sounds easy enough this is actually a difficult stretch that
will work wonders for increasing height. Start by sitting on the floor with
your legs stretched out. Then place your palms on the floor with your
hands facing toward your feet. Next place your feet flat on the floor and
push your torso upward until your body resembles a table.

cool Jump Rope
www.xdperformance.com
Jump rope is not only a school yard activity and a great way to
remember songs, it is also a great exercise for stretching out the body,
especially the lower legs. You will build up these muscles and stretch
them out throughout the jumping motion. The more often you jump rope
the sooner you will start to see results.

9) Spot Jump
www.bblurbs.com
Jumping is an exercise that really stretches out the cartilage in the body,
especially the legs. Repetition of vertical jumps or squat jumps can
stretch out the cartilage so that the body gradually becomes taller. You
can either do this as an individual exercise at home or you can play
basketball in order to get plenty of vertical jumps into your workout
routine.

you will need to lay on your stomach. Stretch your arms out in front of
you with your right arm slightly higher than your left. Then with your legs

before switching your arm and leg.

14) Pilates Roll Over
www.pilatesunion.com
This may be a difficult move to master but it is well worth the effort. Lay
on your back with your arms at your sides. Lift your legs together toward
the ceiling just like the two leg lift. Next try and bring your legs back to
touch the floor behind your head. There are few stretches that stretch
your back out so completely. This works to strengthen and elongate the
spine so doing this stretch every day will have great results for your
height.
