best exercise to increase height

6 best exercise to increase height

Height plays an important role in enhancing the persona of an individual. No doubt, people are always desperate to increase their height in any way possible. Nowadays, a number of medicines and acupressure treatments are available which claim height gain. But, these are quite expensive and have associated side effects. Moreover, there is no 100% guarantee of success for these methods.
Thus, the best possible way to increase height is naturally combining an exercise routine with the right diet. Proper exercise helps in toning and strengthening your muscles, releasing the growth hormones which are responsible for height gain. Proper diet keeps these hormones fresh and active and helps in rebuilding themselves.

 1. Bar hanging

Gravity adversely affects your height by compressing your spines and joints, which squeezes and thins the cartilage, giving you a shorter appearance. Hanging on a vertical bar is a simple way to combat this problem. Hanging makes the lower torso’s weight stretch the spine and decreases the pull on the vertebras. This results in increasing the height by 1 to 2 inches, but not instantly.
A horizontal bar for this should be placed at such a height that it allows the body to extend with room to move. If your body cannot fully extend, then bend your knees slightly in order to hang freely. Ensure that while grasping the bar, your palms are facing outwards. While hanging keep your arms, shoulders and hips as relaxed as possible, so that the gravity effectively pulls the body further. For additional benefits, you can try wearing ankle weights. This process should last for 20 seconds with a gap in between and should be repeated at least 3 times. This can most certainly be considered a good choice among the height increasing exercises.

2. Dry land swimming
This exercise is also known as “alternate kick” and it basically focuses on your lower back.
Start off by laying down flat on your stomach. Your body should be fully extended. Place your arms straight in front of you with your palms facing down towards the floor. Then raise your left arm higher than your right arm. Keeping your legs straight, lift your right leg as far off the ground as you can into the air. Remain in this position for at least 4 seconds and then repeat the procedure with your other leg and other hand. You should aim to hold the position for 20 seconds. Adding wrist and ankle weights will be more beneficial as it will tone your lower back muscles and increase your resistance.

 3. pelvic shift

Being extremely simple, this exercise helps in stretching your body up and down from the spine and also your hips.
You can start off by lying on your back. Place your shoulders and arms firmly on the floor. Now bend your knees and draw your feet as close to your buttocks as you can. Arch your back to thrust your pelvis upwards. This position should be held for 20 to 30 seconds. This exercise enables you to stretch more giving flexibility to your front hips.

4. cobra stretch

This yoga exercise is intended to stretch your spine, thus making it supple and flexible. It is beneficial for the growth of the cartilage between your vertebrae, causing an increase in your vertical height. Lie on the floor with your face down and palms on the floor under your shoulders. Arch your spine up leading your chin also to form an elevated angle. Arch back as far as possible. At least 3-4 reps should be done with each repetition lasting between 5 to 30 seconds.

5. Swimming

Swimming like other cardio exercises is great to boost your energy and keep you in top shape. It enlarges the capacity of your lungs and widens your chest and shoulders. It works and activates your hands, legs and whole body thus stretching your spine and the entire muscle groups.
