3 Effective Stretching Exercises To Increase Height

Yoga Stretch – Height Increase Exercise

 If you are one of those people who is worried by your size and always looking for a way to increase your height help is finally here!

One of the most effective means to increase your height is through a carefully carried out height increase exercises program which is designed to strengthen core muscles, improve posture and also encourage your body to increase the levels of growth hormone it releases in to your blood stream.

It is a well proven fact that exercises of high intensity such as anaerobic activities like cycling, sprinting or swimming can have a huge impact on your body’s production of growth hormones.

Another significantly better grow taller exercise for you to carry out which will also produce results is stretching and this is what we are going to focus on in this article.

The primary aim of a stretching program is to mimic the conditions that are seen in other resistance based exercises such as weight lifting and resistance training. The effect of this is stronger back and abdominal muscles.

Why is this a positive thing?

Well quite simply put stronger muscles reduce the compression of invertebral discs. This has the effect of thickening cartilage in your spinal column thereby lengthening the spinal column and increasing your height naturally.

A good program should include a variety of exercises that will move your body through a full range of motion.  This helps your body become more flexible and makes the bone and cartilage more receptive to growth.

This article will provide you with the basics of three stretching exercises to increase height that will strengthen and lengthen your body.  These following three grow taller exercises are very effective and should be an important part of your exercise program.


One of the biggest obstacles to growing taller is gravity.  You spend most of your day in an upright, vertical position.  All day long gravity compresses your spine and joints, which squeezes and thins the cartilage and makes you shorter.

Girl Hanging - Height Increase Exercise

However, it is easy to counteract this affect through a simple hanging exercise because it lets the weight of your lower torso stretch your spine and reduce the tension between your vertebrae.

In fact, hanging has been known to increase a person’s height by one to two inches.

You will want to have a horizontal bar that is high enough so that your body can fully extend.  If your body cannot fully extend, then bend your knees slightly until you hang freely.

When you grasp the bar, make sure your palms are facing away from you and your thumbs are almost touching.

While you are hanging, try to keep your arms, shoulders, and hips are relaxed as possible.  This helps gravity pull on your body even further.  Try to hang for at least 20 seconds and repeat the process when you are able to grip the bar again.

You should also repeat this exercise a minimum of three times.  Also, if you wear ankle weights while hanging you will get an increased benefit.

Dry Land Swim

Also known as the Alternate Leg Kick, this exercise focuses on your lower back.  You will want to start this exercise by laying down flat on your stomach with your body fully extended.

Alternate Leg Kick - Height Increase Exercise

Put your arms straight out in front of you with your palms toward the floor.  Raise your left arm higher than your right arm. Then, keep your legs straight and lift your right leg off the ground as far as you can.

Try to hold that position for at least 4 seconds before gently lowering your leg and raising the other leg.  Your goal should be to work up to holding the position for 20 seconds.  Also, adding wrist and ankle weights to your workout  will increase resistance and tone your lower back muscles even more.

Pelvic Shift

This exercise is a favourite of fitness instructors all over.  It is simple, but you will quickly feel the stretching that occurs up and down your spine and in your hips.

Pelvic Shift - Height Increase Exercise

You will want to begin the exercise by lying on your back with your shoulders and arms planted firmly on the floor.  Bend your knees and draw your feet as close to your buttock as you can.  Next, arch your back so that your pelvis thrusts upward.

Hold this position for at least 20 seconds and try to work up to holding it for 30 seconds.  As you repeat this move, you should feel more and more stretching in your front hips.

It is always a good idea to check with your doctor before beginning any exercise regiment to make sure your body is healthy enough for this activity.

Strenuous exercises, like these grow taller exercises to increase height, should be done consistently but you should start slowly if you are a beginner.  You can increase the intensity of your workout as your body becomes accustomed to each new exercise.

When you develop a disciplined grow taller exercise program, you will help you body raise and sustain the levels of growth hormone in your body.  Therefore, the more effectively and regularly you exercise the better your chance to increase your height.

The height exercises discussed in this article will help you start a good exercise program. However, the ebook Grow Taller 4 Idiots will give you a more in-depth look at these height increasing exercises and many more that will help you reach your full height potential.

With help from Grow Taller 4 Idiots you will be able to create the height increase exercise regiment that is just right for your body.

    the only way you can grow after your plates have closed is to breake them … well you make microfractures .. this is done by sprinting … or juming a lot maybe thats why basketball players tend to grow tall…. anyways.. after running like crazy on concrete streets or somthing .. go home and drink l arginnie with some milk and put anckle weights on your ..ankles… and hang them from the end of your bed and dream for a while like 10 hours wake up and and eat well and repeat 3 times a week not not in sequence so you allow your bones to heal ..heal longer … meaning youare getting taller!!!!! do this until you see results… might take 5-12months to gorw 1 inch ..depend on your age though… so there you go your recepie to grow taller … warning: this method will make your legs longer..dont overdo or you will be tall but people will lough at your looooong legs ..hope the info helps ..for more info try google-ing shinbone routine.. l arginine ..L Leucine..L Glutamine.. L Ornithine read a lot …im currently trying this method.. i just started home it works im 19 im 5.7 i wish to be 6 foot as soon as possible !!! happy growing . God Bless

    1# Think positive don’t let know one bring your self-assurance, confidence down and you just got to believe in yourself cause your going to get taller!
    2# Stretching the whole body everyday morning to night
    3#Swimming three times a week or more
    5#Eat healthy
    6# Sleep at least 8 hours a day best before midnight to reach your full potential

    And a tip/my secret to get taller fast is calf raise everyday 200 of them or more!

    Thank Doctor Stan

  • interested July 11, 2009, 5:02 am

    I’m 5′ 5″ and everyday it feels like I’m getting shorter. I’m only 13 but I don’t want to be short when I’m older. I do admit that a couple glasses of milk a day helps for a while but now my whole growing plan has stopped.
    What is a calf raise? And how can I eat healthy? I have a lot of protein, mainly meat and I get a lot of dairy and sugar. I don’t like any vegetables and I was wondering if there was anyway that I could get the vitamins vegetables give you without eating them?
    How does swimming help? How can I exersise my whole body?
    Thanks for any help

Also you pointed out the fact(?) that most Asian countries have a lower height average because of carbs. Regardless of the fact, still my family’s average height is 6 foot and I’m the smallest, why is this? Please can u help?

    Hello. I’m currently 17 years old, about to turn 18 in 4 months. and I don’t know if my growing stages are over yet. I’m currently about 5’2″ and I want to increase my height to 5’5″ (due to modeling conveniences). Do regular exercises (such as lifting weights and sit ups, push ups, etc.) work as well as the exercises listed in the entry? Unfortunately, I can’t find a bar to hang from so the other two are my only options.
    Please help me out on this one. Thanks so much ^^

  • Mike January 8, 2010, 2:22 am

    Hello, I am 5′ 10″ and wish to become atleast 6′ tall. My doctor looked into my bone structure and so on when I was a baby and said i was probably going to be from 5′ 8″ to 5′ 10″. Does this mean that I have already reached my height potential.

  • D.L January 11, 2010, 3:02 pm

    Gotta get it kicking….16 and half and only 171cm…way more to go!!!!!

  • Brian January 29, 2010, 12:03 pm

    The thing most of us have to face is that height is mainly genetic. There is relatively little you can do that will make a vast difference. Exercise can increase your height by 1-2 inches at the most, all else is pre-determined. The sooner people accept this the better.

  • ggtall January 30, 2010, 5:39 pm

    Hi eveyone. I am 36. I have grown 2 1/2 inches in a yr. I was 54 now I am 56. This all due to stretching on a regular basis. I do yoga and pilates everyday and eat healthy.

  • zap January 31, 2010, 9:21 am

    I`m 24 and 169-171cms… around 5’7.2″ and odd. I want to make my height stretch over 5’11” or 6’0″ if possible… I would love it.

    I am already doing some gravity exercises like pulling the upper and lower parts of my body by balancing over a “L-Shape” corner with my hands and letting my body weight fall towards ground without touching the ground. I can also feel the stretch. I wish i can make a few more inches before i`m 30…

  • Angel Cardenas April 10, 2010, 8:18 pm

    thank you for the help:) hope it helps

  • Peace April 11, 2010, 12:23 am

    Hey guys, don’t upset about that. We’re all here because we don’t have the dream height…..because we’re all shorter than the people around us….but we’re all here because we still believe that we can grow taller……that’s why we’re all here. I’ll bring for you some new methods that make me get taller:

    FIRST!!! I’ll talk again about what we’ve all known already:
    -Eat health( Milk, cheese…….)
    +Jumping(basketball or just jump)^^
    +Stretching(you all know what you have to do…if not…please read this topic)
    -Sleeping: you have to sleep at least 7-8 hours per. 9-10 is PERFECT. You should sleep more at night from 10pm to 6am the following day. 8 hours for a night is perfect, then you can rest at noon if you want. Sleeping at night is very important. Do you know why??? Because growth hormone activate when we sleep at night. Do you guys realize that we’re all taller every day??? We’re all taller from 1-1.5 inch after we wake up from a long sleep, but after 1-2 hours we’ll come back to normal(we’re get shorter and return to our real height) That the point. It improves that your body will stretch when you sleeping.

    You all know about this….but I just want to remind you…..you have to do it if you want to grow taller. I know somebody who really wants to be taller and they know what you know….they know what to do….but they won’t. I was one of them…..So I don’t want you become like that. Take you chance. UNDERSTAND.

    SECOND: I will tell you guys about what I know and you guys don’t know^^
    – You drink milk every day, you eat the meal with a lot of CALCIUM. Why??? Of course !!! you want to be taller. But you have to know that….just some percents of calcium from what you eat can be absorbed in to your body…..and just few percents of them can make your bone longer……If you want to absorb more and more CALCIUM from your meal….you need VITAMIN D. Where can you find vitamin D….what we have to eat to absorb vitamin D……The vitamin D is included a lot in the sunshine. You should spend 15-25 minutes in the sunshine from 8am-10am. DO NOT take longer, and located outside the period in which I defined. I don’t want your skin are harmed, and you too. Furthermore, mushroom contain a lot of vitamin D.

    -If you’re old…it’ll be difficult to get taller….and if you’re too old….it’ll be impossible….Except you use some medicines or iBST hormone, growth hormone ….I really don’t want to talk about that….I don’t think it’s save for you…..IF SOME OF YOU’RE 30 OR OVER….I CAN HELP YOU. 30 is impossible to grow…you know that….except you become younger…..Do you thing become younger is impossible too??? The answer is NO. I exercise the “Ancient Secret of the Fountain of Youth”. Have you heard about it??? It can help you become younger and then you can be taller. Search it on internet. It helps me so much. I promise myself that: if someday I’ll be taller, I’ll tell everyone about that. That day has come. When I begin, I was 18, and my height is 1.64cm….too short(when I was 15 my height was 1.63m)….now I’m 19 I feel I become younger, and my height is 1.70….and I keep promise. I still become younger and taller……. and you’ll.

  • jeicob April 15, 2010, 5:20 am

  • Peace April 23, 2010, 12:54 am

    Hey Jeicob. Are you waiting for me??? If so….I don’t have anything to tell you more about that……just do exactly what I said….That’s it.

    Search in Internet: “Ancient Secret of the Fountain of Youth” and you will find the answer….Good luck.^^

  • anna2424 May 3, 2010, 10:27 pm

    hello, i’m 21 years old, south east european female, i ‘m 5 feet 4 inches tall the “good days”, other days i’m about 5.3 or sopmething like that, can i grow taller.. much taller? let’s say about 5 feet and 6 inches or 7??? my parents are short but my brother is about 6 feet, without doing anything special than drinking a lot of milk, something that i never did..

  • Paul Smith June 18, 2010, 1:10 pm

    O my God,
    I finally found this webiste again. I saw this website about 6 months ago, printed the exercises and did them for 6 months straight. Recently i was 6 foot and a half and now i’m 6’4. This was because of these exercises, as i am already 19 and i grew 3 and ahalf inches. My dad is 5’9 and my mom is 5’5, i can’t believe that it worked, YOU PEOPLE HAVE TO TRY THIS EXERCISE FOR FEW MONTHS STRAIGHT trust me.!!

  • Ali June 19, 2010, 8:46 am

    when im 18 i was 157cm tall but i started to do 2 exercises crazily !!!!
    then when im 21 and half i sweeeeeeear that im incridibly i have reach 195cm I swear to god !!!!! and my family took me to the hospital they thought me that i got growth hormone problom 🙂

  • Christopher June 29, 2010, 12:11 pm

    these exercises reallly do help !!!
    you just need to eat right and do these exercises!
    especially the hanging on the bars with weights on your ankles!
    i was 5’4 now i’m 5’7

  • Tomo August 5, 2010, 2:08 am

    Oh, and I actually have just found a genuine way to grow taller: Measure yourself in the morning.

    I know they always say that you’re a bit taller after sleeping/laying down for 8 hours, but it’s actually quite a difference. When I left the above post yesterday, as I mentioned, I was 5′ 6″. To be exact, I was a bit over 5′ 6″ but not quite 5′ 6.5″.

    Well, when I got out of bed this morning, Had breakfast and then went and measured myself again. My morning measurement is 5′ 7″ on the dot.

    Now if only I could stop gravity from destroying this little bit extra. Perhaps exercises such as those mentioned in this blog will be sufficient enough to toughen up my spine. We’ll see.

  • Dan October 2, 2010, 8:57 am

    I agree with tomo

    i used to be 5’7 dot until last year since i was swimming at regular pace but since one year due to work pressure, poor sleeping habits and diet am back to 5’6

    i was shocked and notice the same when i went to photographer for passport size photos i would feel that am sitting straight but actually in the real image it would appear that am titled to the right side

    something really screwed up my spine i don’t know what

    i am 31 now

    am starting these exercises plus back to swimming and will let you the results in next 6 months

  • Andy January 4, 2011, 11:21 pm

    I have a more complicated curve ball question here which is a tad more different than begging for help. I would love an answer if you know it! When i was 18 was around 5′11 and perfectly content with that.
    But due to malnutrition from having a Whipple procedure and then 2/3 of my lower intestine got blocked at age 25 and had to be removed so i’m lucky to absorb 1/2 the proteins i eat. I have kept getting shorter and and am still getting lighter since then. Is there anything i can do to get my height back to normal? I know the weight problems are a GI’s issue. That’s why i only mean to talk about the height as i’ve lost 3-4 inches.

    Will the eating, swimming, stretching, etc still work for me as well? I’m 31 and bought an inversion table to hang upside down from, it always makes my back feel stretched out but I’m not positive it works. Any advice would make more than my day if you could possibly answer me?

  • Orthopedic physician January 18, 2011, 1:41 am

    hey everyone,

    these exercises are great as i tried them with my patients. persons below age 18 can benefit more. persons above 18 will get minimal increase which is actually resulting from corrected posture after exercising. middle age and older person should keep doing these exercises plus others to preserve their bone stock and avoid osteoporosis and height loss which results from vertebral collapse and compression. good luck

  • morad horton March 4, 2011, 3:24 pm

    Hi, first of all I would like to thank the person(s) that made this website. and my name is Morad and i am 18. i am 5’4 and i wight 125lbs. my main problem is that i been 5’4 since i was 15 and i never got taller like a normal peron does. i would look at all my friends and they all seem to be getting taller really fast but im not. my best friend was the same hight as me during freshmen year in hs but now he is like 4 inches taller. everyone around me is getting taller but me. so i would highly appreciate if you give me some tips on how to get taller and if it is still possible for me to get taller. and what kind of food to eat and how many of it do i need to consume daily.

    thank you!

  • taj March 12, 2011, 6:35 am

    guys, i think wat u guys should do is join like a basketball team or even just play it as a hobby or something, trust me it seriously works. other than that follow these simple rules i have gathered for you, and im only like 15, any way, get out a pen and paper and FOLLLOW THESE RULES!! >.<

    – eat foods that have less sugars and fats, but more vitamins, minerals and calories an so on.

    -do stretches that ease tension in your spine (this will loosen your spine and let more cartilage grow wich make you grow), but also do other strtches for your legs and arms and neck.

    – drink 2 glasses of FULL CREAM milk, and a slice of cheese

    -do lots of sprints and joggs

    – get plenty of sleep (approximately 8-10 hours)

    – do donky kicks- get on all fours then slowly raise one of your legs until it is level with the rest of your body, do this 20 times on 1 leg then switch to the other leg ATTENTION GIRLS!!

  • anongirl April 23, 2011, 9:53 pm

    A little less than a year ago I was 5’8″ and 16 years old. I’ve been doing the last 2 stretching exercises before went to sleep each night (once or twice for each exercise) on and off for a while, then sleeping on my back without a pillow, and now I’m 17 and 5’9″. I’m gonna keep doing the exercises more regularly now – I hope to get to 5’11” or 6′ I think it’s possible if you’re persistent. 😀

  • Dule May 24, 2011, 4:16 pm

  • Susana July 31, 2011, 2:41 pm

    Hi all,
    Being short is no easy task, people are constantly reminding you how short you are as if you dont already know lol. I am 25 years old and 5’1, this kinda sucks but my obsession with height only started about a year ago. I didnt even realize how short I was until everyone started pointing it out. Truthfully I am trying to just get over it, because I dont believe there is anything I can do. Email me at scanelo420@yahoo.com for some height support. 🙂


  • Sarabeth September 19, 2011, 9:45 pm

    Hi I am 20 years old and didnt start pubety till 15 I am not sure if that affects my length of time with growing potential but I am praying every night to the Model Gods that is the case, I am a very short 5’5″ and am hoping there is another three to four inches in there maybe two just be on the safe (wishing) side dont want to ask too much 🙂 Can you please help me I have went to a hundred casting calls they all say I have the Look I have the Walk I just dont have the height, it saddens me so much my sisters have the height and they dont even use it they dont know how lucky they are 🙂 Please any tips any are very much welcome from any and everyone here.

  • SomeGuyWithAnswers October 25, 2011, 5:08 pm

    If you are older than 18 chances are your done with puberty. Once the human body is finished going through puberty your body physically will not grow any more. BUT! You can do certain stretches still if you are older which will fix your posture and you could go from 5.5 to 5.7 or 5.10 to 6. If your older just try to fix your posture by stretching it will make you 1-3 inches taller maybe more depending how bad your posture is and how much better it gets.

  • Tikiko Nakete February 18, 2012, 6:29 pm

    Hi! I was 5 foot 7 inch last year and after doing some stretching exercises I am now more than 5 foot 9 inch ! Wow Im glad that Growtaller for idiots is here when we need it!

  • Karylyn August 1, 2012, 11:19 pm

    I feel like most of thes comments are fake…. Why does everyone write the same way? Suspicious. Haha, regardless though, I’ll add to the complaint list.

    Because I have a young face, my slight build and short height onlyl add to the general impression I am young and immature. This makes it harder for people to take me seriously regardless of how I act.

    I am 16 and 5.1.75.” Never had a major growth spurt. Foot size is 5-5.5 and my weight is 103. I worry my time to grow is running out. Is the way to guarantee growth?

    Thank you a million times. Looking forward to your response and advice! I have only the inklings of hope right now!
