Being Tall - Can Stretching Exercises Increase Height .... Safely ?
One of the simplest and most effective ways to increase your height is through stretching and following the guidelines of a height increasing exercise program. Here are some tips...

Exercising & Stretching can help correct posture, strengthen important muscles and aid proper circulation around the body - especially when combined with the correct diet for growing taller.
The different stretching techniques and exercises discussed here are also designed to increase the body's production of growth hormones - essential in helping you grow taller.
Human growth hormones or HGH is a hormone that - when triggered through exercise and stretching - strengthens bones, muscles and tissues and causes your whole body to grow.
What these grow taller exercises essentially do is release the human growth hormone into the bloodstream, while the height increasing stretching exercises enable the hormones to better carry out there function of stretching the muscles and allowing the bones to grow.
Although an effective Exercising & Stretching program is of benefit at any age, the body is more receptive to this process during it's final growth phase and hence of maximum return at this time. Experts agree that this is one of the safest forms of height gain methodologies and far more preferable to any form of medication.
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. 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.
Hanging - Did Newton say "Gravity is one of the biggest obstacles to growing taller" ? 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.
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.
Grab 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 30 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.
