This is one of the best stretches for getting taller and its also one of the simplest. All you need is something to hold onto and let you body drop. The pull of your body weight will stretch the muscles and tendons of your spine as well as allowing your vertebrae to gain some much needed room to refill with fluid. All boosting your height by up to an inch. You need to hold the hang position for at least 2 minutes but if you can’t hold your own weight that long then don’t worry because you can always tie your arms, wrists and hands to a bar which will take the pressure off your hands.
Shoulder Posture Reset (+2 Inches)
Due to our increasingly seated lifestyle we’re all beginning to gain a bit of a slouch and this can have a huge impact on your overall height. To reverse this trend is simple and all you need is a flat wall. Simply stand up against the wall and push your shoulders back so they sit flush with it. Then push your head back and your chin in so your head sits against the wall too. Do not push your neck into the wall. It’s normal for your neck to curve inward. This stretches your pectoral muscles and tightens your shoulders to pull your body up.
This may feel unnatural at first but trust me – this is what you’re meant to be standing like. Hold this position for 10 seconds and repeat 3 times in the morning and at night. After a week of this you’ll start to notice some great results.
Hip Flexors Stretch (+1/2 Inch)
The hip flexors become tight through constantly being in a seated position for long periods. This tightness causes numerous imbalances in your body position and so you lose up to an inch in height. A simple hip flexor stretch can be performed by kneeling down on one knee then push your hips forward feeling a stretch at the front of your hips on the back leg. Do this stretch for 10 seconds on each leg.
