Exercising keeps your body fit so that you can increase your height. There are thousands of different types of workouts. Therefore it is important that you know which exercises will give you the best results. Focusing on exercises that lengthen your bones is most effective, but you must strengthen your muscles to support this new growth.
Hanging exercises are a fantastic follow up to a high-impact workout. High-impact exercises tend to cause micro-fractures in your bones that are painless and heal quickly. Hanging exercises capitalize on these breaks by keeping the bones in an extended position. When the bones are healed in this lengthened position you will increase your height. Hanging also stretches out your spine and makes the cartilage expand and heal into this new length. It is not uncommon to have results of one to two inches just by performing hanging exercises as a follow up to high-impact activity. If you add ankle weights to your routine you will even further optimize your workout. Here are the descriptions of three fantastic ways to reach your height goals by hanging.
1) The Bar Hang- This simple exercise will help stretch your spine so that you can gain height. You will want to begin by hanging vertically from the bar for as long as possible without your feet touching the ground. Take a break and put on ankle weights. Grab the bar so that your thumbs are touching and your palms are facing away from you. Hang as straight as possible, unless the bar is too low and then bend your knees to keep your feet off the ground. Position your head so that your ears touch each arm and squeeze you shoulder blades together.
You will want to make sure you gradually begin this exercise. Try hanging for only ten seconds at first and then break for ten seconds, repeating this process for five to ten minutes. Your strength will improve and you will soon be able to hang for twenty seconds with a fifteen second break.
2) Hanging Knee-Ups- This exercise is a little more strenuous than the last exercise. However, it not only stretches your spine and leg bones, it also strengthens your arms, shoulders, and wrists. To begin, hold the bar with your hands almost touching, but your palms facing you. Extend your arms and body to its fullest. Exhale and then slowly bring your knees to your chest. Do this slowly and continually, without swinging your body for momentum. After a count of two you should inhale and slowly bring your knees down. Continue doing this exercise as many times as you for one minute. Then, rest for twenty to thirty seconds and repeat for at least three cycles.
3) The Hanging Twist- Your body’s momentum is the driving force behind this great technique to increase height. Begin by holding the bar with your hands barely apart and your palms facing away from you. Twist your body from side to side, using your legs to create momentum. Make sure that you make gentle and controlled movement. Also, keep your head stationary.
You should continue this exercise for at least one minute. Then you should break for twenty to thirty seconds. Repeat the exercise until you have completed four cycles. As your strength increases, you will be able to control your movement more and add additional cycles to your routine.
There are many benefits to hanging exercises. Hanging from a horizontal bar, especially while wearing ankle weights, is an excellent way to strengthen and tone your body. However, if you are want to see your body growing taller and taller, then hanging exercises is a must.
