People often compromise with their height thinking that it has come from their genetics. It is true, unless you don’t know the techniques to push yourself and grow taller. Usually if their parents or grand parents are taller, they also grow taller. But it doesn’t mean that there are no other options to grow. And if these techniques are applied during their growing period, they can grow taller than their expectations . These techniques can even be applied after certain age as well. But, the only thing is you can’t expect that much height as that of during your teenage period.
So before proceeding further lets understand what are things to avoid during your teenage:
- Do not lift heavy weights during the teenage period such as water container, heavy weight bags. It doesn’t allow the spine to stretch itself and it starts contracting.
- Be aware of your sitting postures, always sit on the chair with your back straight.
- Do not climb upstairs wearing heavy bags.
- Do not go for gym to lift heavy weight barbells or dumbbells during the teenage period.
- Do not sit idle, you need to be active.

- Try to be active, don’t sit idle.
- Keep jumping at least for 5 to 10 minutes a day.
- Do skipping for 10 to 15 minutes a day.
- Jump and hold the pull up bar and start swinging, do this for 5 minutes daily. It stretches your spinal cord.
- Try doing pull ups, holding the bar and squeezing it till you touch you chin to the bar, repeat this exercise for 3 times with a count of 15, 12 and 10.
