Is it possible to grow taller?

can you get taller?

The quick answer is probably not because…

After your teens or after the age of 20-to-25 you stop growing unless you have some glandular problem and don't blame your parents for how tall you are because…

Your height is based on many different genetic factors (this being the reason why some tall people have short parents) but overall…

You are more than likely to be short if most of the people in your family are short on average but…

It is possible to maximize your growth potential by…

You can get taller thru surgery but…

The surgery cost up to 150,000 dollars and it's a very painful process that basically requires your legs to be broken allowing them to get longer and even after that procedure is successful…

You have to wait 6 months to walk again and up to a year for the bones to harden and…

I doubt insurance companies will cover this expensive procedure for cosmetic reasons unless you got it for a deformity.

4 'Grow taller' methods that do not work…

1. Stretching

Some people think you can increase your height by stretching which is ridiculous if you just use logic and understand that when you stretch…

You are stretching your muscles and not your bones and even those who claim the stretching works only report gaining ¼ inch in height and they could've got that extra inch wearing the right pair of shoes and…

One stretching exercise some people use to increase height requires you to hang from a bar (like in a pull-up) but…

I can easily debunk that because I myself have done thousands of pull-ups in my lifetime where I hang constantly and I can tell you I have not seen a major height increase.

2. Glucosamine & chondroitin

Glucosamine & chondroitin are helpful in preventing joint pain and strengthening joints (and even that is disputed) but I doubt they will assist in making you any taller because…

I personally been taking joint supplements on and off for years to maintain healthy joints and I have not noticed any difference in my height.

3. Visualization/ Hypnosis

The claim here is simply that if you can visualize, dream or see yourself as being taller that in itself will make you taller but…

If you really believe that saying "I will be taller" over and over every morning will make you taller then go for it!

4. Magic pills/supplements

Just like those pills that claim they can increase the size of a man's penis are BS…

The same goes for ANY pill claiming that you can increase your height just by taking it and whenever someone is trying to sell you some 'Grow Taller' method and they claim they added 1-to-4 inches in height…

Ask them if they gained those 1-to-4 inches during puberty or after the age of 20-to-25 because if they gained it during puberty then the 1-to-4 inches gain was more than likely going to happen anyway and…

Even if they gained 1-to-4 inches after their 20's then be highly skeptical since it's virtually impossible to natural grow taller in your 20's because your growth plates have fused together.

grow taller

but will those 1-2 inch example stay permament ??

November 30, 2016


At age 16-17 I didn't gain any height. I remember when I just turned 18 and it was near end of the year I noticed I gained 2 cm. And back then I just started lifting weight like deadlift,bench and squat. So it could be possible that it was lifting weight helped me gain 2 cm. Another possibility was I remember I always did pull ups everyday non stop month of August to December. I only did 10-20 pull ups a day not a lot lol. Currently I'm 19 and still the same height as when I was 18.

Back then I really didn't care about my height. I only lift weight and did pull ups to lose my stubborn fat. So ya I think it really help me gain some height without me noticing. So everyone just exercise and you guys don't need to worry too much.

I'm currently 20 and I'm 170cm which is 5'7. I can't really finalize my answer if stretching can help you grow another inch or two. I have never try that in a long period of time. But I feel like doing something(stetching) better than nothing. So I have started stretching since last week. People and many articles says stretching only helps with your posture and make you look taller by a little. But I'm not going to stop now. Going with my stretching routine until probably next year. Also I may go back to my old routine (bike for an hour and pull ups).

If you have any questions. Please free to ask!

#Update- almost 3 weeks of stretching and Im so fricking happy. I'm actually 173cm in the morning and night I'm 172cm. I grew another 2 cm! I will not stop stretching!

December 11, 2016


R u serious?? Can you say what all exercises you did.??

December 14, 2016


Right now I standing 172cm which is 5'8". I'm so happy but three days ago I started lifting weight again because I want to add some muscles to my body structure. I just hope it doesn't affect my height even though I'm 20 year old now. Well I just need to try it, heavy squatting will probably boost up my growth hormone. (pull up,bench press, squatting and deadlift) I will update after a few weeks if the intense heavy workout is working or not.

+Fantastic Yes I'm serious. Even I didn't believe it too until I woke up im like wtf I feel taller and I measured my height and yep 173cm but night time im 172cm but still I gain 2 cm again :D!!!! . I do over 19 yoga poses 5 sets of 15-20 secs. So basically hold it for 15-20secs. You should start off with super stretch which can attempt by laying down or standing up (stretch as much as you can like a a candlestick). secondly cobra stretch. Table pose . Touch toe. Mountain pose. twist. cat downward and etc.

During that 3 weeks I have been doing pull ups and hanging too. I hold it for 45 secs to 1 min. I think the biggest stretch must be the hanging from a bar because I said it before I did it August of 2014 and to end of December and I gained 2 cm too. August 2014 to December 2014 took approximately 5 months to gain that 2 cm. But now wow. I think the yoga stretch really helps. Which mean swimming will definitely help you gain some height.

Don't give up and stay calm!
