In today’s society, people, especially males, are often judged by their height. A tall man will most likely receive more job offers and have an easier time getting dates than a short man. While this is unfair, it is a fact of life that is not going to change anytime soon.
So what do you do if you’re a short guy? Besides surgery and growth hormones which are costly and painful, it is possible to add two or more inches to your height with a few crafty methods that do not involve sawing into your bones or injecting yourself with a hormone.
The primary key is that most people appear a bit shorter than they are because of poor posture and lack of physical exercise. Poor posture and slouching can shrink a person’s height by two inches or more! The best way to fix posture is through specific stretching exercises that focus on your core muscles which in turn will help strengthen and straighten your spine which will make you appear taller.
Four types of exercises you can start right now to get taller are:
1. Abdominal Crunches
2. Seated Rows
3. Reverse Flies
4. Lateral Pull-Downs
These exercises focus on your core stomach muscles and your upper back and both are necessary to strengthen and stretch the critical muscles for increasing your height. Results are not going to happen immediately. You will need to stick to an exercise regimen for at least 6 weeks to start seeing results. However, if getting taller is important to you, the payoff will be worth it.
