1) Stretching. Stretching exercises are a must if you want to grow some inches – even as an adult. Most people believe that you can’t grow after a certain age. That’s wrong! You can because you spine has 24 vertebrae that aren’t fused. That means you can strengthen your spine permanently: the spinal discs and the cartilage in your spine thickens and you get taller. Scientific studies have shown that special stretching exercises can allow you to grow 2-3 inches permanently. But you have to do these exercises every day for several months to see an effect. Here is an example: This simple exercise is called The Skier. Stand with your legs 3 feet apart. Raise your arms over your head as high as you can. Now bend forward pushing your arms through your legs. Rest for 5 seconds, then straighten up. Do 6 repetitions every day before you do to bed.
2) Wind Sprints. Sprint for 50 meters, rest for 20-30 seconds and run again. Repeat this exercise 3 times and do it regularly. The idea behind it is that at high speed (your heart rate should be above 150-160) your body produces a lot of human growth hormone.
3) Swimming. Swimming may be the healthiest sport you can do. It stretches your entire body and trains your back muscles that are important for a good posture.
4) Hanging. Hang on a pull-up bar for at least 15 seconds releasing all the tension in your muscles (5 min a day). The idea here is to stretch your spine. Shake yourself a bit, so more spinal fluid can get between the vertebrae in your spine. Your spine won’t lengthen your spine that much, but this exercise actually prevents you from getting smaller.
