For all of you looking on “how do I get taller” you will have encountered growing taller exercises. One of the overlooked exercises which are also very effective is cycling, that is right, you can in fact turn cycling into a way to increase your height. This isn’t just regular cycling though, you will have to make a few changes to the normal way that you cycle into a method that is specialised to help you lengthen your legs and give you the answer on “how do I get taller”
The discovery of how cycling would help is when it was discovered that the Dutch were taller than the Germans and it could be seen due to the different riding positions that the two had when it came down to their bikes.
So if you are someone who cycles around a lot as part of their daily routine then this is for you, or even if you don’t cycle you can do this in your free time or even on a stationary bike or at a gym too.
The following are the changes/improvements that you will need to make when you start riding your bike to help you obtain optimal growth…
· When your feet are on the pedal you will want to have your leg fully stretched when you are at the bottom of the cycle.
· Raise the handlebars up so that you don’t slump over the handle bars like a racer but instead keep your body straight up.
· Once you have gotten used to this height you will want to raise your seat a quarter of an inch (MOST IMPORTANT STEP), this will help your legs stretch and once you have become accustomed to this you will want to keep going on and on raising the level of your seat.
· Be CAREFUL not to be on your tip toes on the pedal when your foot gets to the bottom, you must make sure that they are flat and comfortable otherwise you may risk injury and reduce control of the bike.
By following these simple steps you will be able to manipulate the growth in your legs around the thigh area (one of the 3 target spots to lengthen for height; thigh, spine and shins) just by simply cycling around.
If you don’t like the idea of cycling there are in fact many other exercises to grow taller that you can actually use to help you increase your height. These include activities such as sprinting, skipping (jump rope), playing basket ball, swimming etc.
You will want to make sure that you don’t overdo it with these activities though. The main reason for this is you don’t want to cause yourself any injury while trying to increase your height and also because the body will mostly grow and recover while it is in the resting period. For this reason you will want to make sure that you keep it to 3-5 days so that your body actually has time to rest from these growing taller exercises.
