How to Increase Height Naturally


One of the most concerns of teens nowadays are their physical appearances, on how to be beautiful or whatsoever they want to be. And one of the factors to have a good appearance to people is the height of a person. This is the most common problem of a teen.

I am now already 16 years old but I think my height is not appropriate for my age. Often I really feel so small not just in physical but also in my capabilities. I also often compared to my younger sister because she’s an inch taller than me. Every time I hear those people I got mad, so mad and pressured. I’ve been suffering of these in my high school life . I just don’t what is really the problem. Both my parents have average heights and also have a proper nutrition, I don’t choose food especially when I know that it is healthy to it, then I go for it.

I’ve been searching and searching then I’ve found out that I lack exercise. That’s it! So I have been searching to those especial exercise for those who want to get taller.

Here are the recommended  exercises:

Mountain pose
(Separates vertebrae, aligns spine.)

Feet just inside shoulder width, tailbone tucked toward your heels, belly button sucked in. Move your shoulder blades back and down. Stretch your head up toward the ceiling. Hold for one minute.
Downward-facing dog
(Strengthens, draws back shoulders.)

Begin on all fours with your hands just in front of your shoulders. Lift your knees off the floor, straighten your legs, and push your heels toward the floor. Breathe deeply for one minute.
Simple supported backbend
(Provides a deep, supported stretch.)

Lie back with a cylindrical pillow just below your shoulder blades and a rolled-up blanket beneath your neck. Open your arms, palms facing up. Breathe deeply.
Simple reclining twist
(Tones torso, balances spine.)

Tuck your chin slightly. Arms open, palms up. Breathe in and bring your knees to your chest, then, as you exhale, lower your legs to the right side. Breathe deeply for one minute. Repeat on the left side.

VERTICAL HANGING:

This is a simple but an extremely effective stretching exercise which you can do at your home. All you need to have is a solid bar strong enough to hold an individual, fixed at least 7 feet above the ground such that the distance between your feet and the floor is atleast 4-6 inches. Hold your arms neither closer nor wider and start hanging. Hold as long as you can, and as you begin to tire, slowly swing back and forth and try to touch the ground with your feet. This will flex your spine and elongate it, so that you can add few inches to your height

Make sure that you flex your spine while stretching, and not merely twisting your wrists

Perform the Workout times a week for optimal results

COBRA STRETCH:

This is basically a Yoga exercise intended to stretch your spine and make it supple and flexible, so that the cartilage between your vertebrae grows thereby increasing your vertical height

Lie on the floor face down with palms on the floor under your shoulders. Begin to arch your spine up leading with your chin. Arch as far back as possible. Do 3-4 repetitions with each repetition lasting between 5-30 seconds

PILATES ROLL OVER:

This is an excellent workout to stretch your spine and lengthen your upper body. Apart from your spine, it also stretches and lenghthens the vertebrae of your neck.

Lie on your back with your arms along your sides, palms down. With your legs together, extend them straight up toward the ceiling and bend them backwards so that they touch the floor. It may not be possible to touch the floor at first, but you can do this by practice. The more your stretch, the more your spine lenghthens

FORWARD SPINE STRETCH:

Sit up tall on a mat. Your legs are extended about shoulder width apart, and your feet are flexed. Reach the top of your head but let your shoulders stay relaxed. Inhale and extend your arms out in front of you and slowly bend forward and try to touch the tips of your toes. If you are able to touch your toetips, stretch even forward so that your spine is flexed to the maximum extent.

Do 3-4 repetitions and hold each stretch for 10-15 seconds

ANKLE WEIGHTS: 

This exercise is solely intended to increase the length of your lower body, by stretching the cartilate between your knees. Prolonged stretching will elongate the cartilage and increase its mass, which in turn will increase the length your lower body

Sit on a high chair and use a Ankle weight fastener to add weights to your ankle. Start with small weights initially and gradually increase as you go on. Allow your legs to stretch down with the pressure of the weights. Once completed, remove the weights and relax your legs by kicking your legs gently for 5-10 times, and then vigorously for 5-10 times. This will flex your knee cartilate to enable it to grow in length
