Best Stretching Exercises to Increase Height Effectively and Quickly

Introduction

Man is known to always want to alter nature, through innovation and numerous others activities, and he has succeeded in doing just that. Man has tried to advance himself beyond his natural capacities and height is one of them.

Height is an important factor to everyone; regardless of the situation, it helps an individual to build much-needed confidence. But again, man has never been satisfied with his appearance which is why discoveries were made on ways to increase one’s height.

Over the years mankind has worked towards achieving numerous things. They have altered the laws of nature and sought improvement. Our height as humans is one factor of increased confidence level in us; it boosts our desire to be seen and gives a spring in our step, but unfortunately, we all don’t like our height.

Our genes are to blame for our height, but a healthy diet and balanced living coupled with proper exercise can help give us our desired height. Exercises have been developed to help those who hate their heights with a chance of getting taller.

Types of Workouts to be Adopted

The Forward Bend:

This is one of the easiest exercises we all are familiar with. Stand straight with your hands raised high above your head and slowly bring them down to touch your toes. Repeat daily on a ten rep and wait for results.

Cobra Stretch:

Also an Indian yoga pose; it’s one of my favorite kinds of exercise. You lay flat on your tummy and with your palms facing down, bring yourself up all the way to your waist. Your cobra pose should look like that of a cobra raising its head. It should last for 30 seconds with a five-rep count.

Wall Stretch:

I won’t deny; this workout is actually hard although it really looks easy to do. You stand facing a wall and place your palms on it imitating a push, you put your right foot forward and slightly bend at the knees. It’s a really hard exercise as you will feel a strain in your thighs and back. But it will give you much-needed results.

Pelvic Lift:

I find this one easy because it actually feels nice when finished. You lie on your back palms, faced down and you begin to lift your hip region up and down. It stretches your abdominal muscles and back also.

Side Stretch:

We all passed through elementary school, and we can all remember the one exercise we all loved. You stand with your feet, shoulder-width apart and stretch your hands up, then you bend slowly to the left and right.

The Number of Reps Needed

Every activity has its limit and recommendations, so also every exercise. When adopting a workout routine, it’s best to do exercises that work best with your body size and shape and do not try to go beyond your capacities.

There is also something called “reps” in work out which means the number of times to do the pose. It’s all about how many times you should do the crunch, how many minutes you should last on that cobra stretch. If you are using an app, it increases as you get better — the more consistent you are, the higher the number of reps you get. It also includes how many seconds you should last on a pose or an angle.

There are recommendable apps programmed to provide exercises that would help you grow taller, and they are available on app stores.

Rest Day

It is important to know that we should not go beyond our strength — only follow what works best.

Every good workout routine needs a rest day to rest your muscles from all the activity. So you should never skip your rest day to avoid complications.

These exercises have been proven to help with blood circulation and will help increase our height.
