Best Exercises To Increase Height


For best results, those exercises should be adopted and practised 2-3 times a week on a regular basis. Exercising over should be avoided as it can cause injury and hamper the body’s capacity to heal.

1. Bar Hanging

Gravity adversely affects your height by compressing your spines and joints, crushing and thinning the cartilage and giving you a shorter appearance. Hanging on a vertical bar is a simple way of fighting this issue. Hanging lets the weight of the lower torso extend the spine and reduces the pressure on the vertebras. This leads to a height rise of 1 to 2 inches but not immediately.

For this, a horizontal bar should be placed at such a height that the body can extend with room to move. If your body is not able to extend fully, then bend your knees slightly to free hanging. Make sure your palms face outwards when gripping the handle. Hold the arms, shoulders and thighs as loose as possible when hanging so the gravity effectively pushes the body forward. You can also try wearing ankle weights for additional benefits. This cycle should last with a break in between for 20 seconds and should be repeated at least 3 times. Most definitely this can be considered a good option among the exercises that are rising in height.

2. Dry Land Swim

Hold your legs straight, raise your right leg into the air as far away from the ground as you can. Stay in this position for at least 4 seconds, then repeat the process with your other hand and leg. You should aim for a 20-second hold on the position. It will be more beneficial to add wrist and ankle weights, as it will tone your lower back muscles and increase your resistance.
