One of the best grow taller exercises that you can do to increase your height naturally and fast is the hanging stretching exercise. It is one of the most recommended exercise of any height increasing programs like Grow Taller 4 Idiots and one of my favorite exercise that i do during morning and just before going to bed.
During the day, gravity really compresses your spinal column and also increases the curvature of your spine which causes you to lose few inches of your height. The hanging exercise will help you to counteract this effect and will stretch and thicken your inter-vertebral discs and at the same time helps to reduce the curvature of your spinal column cause by improper posture.
The hanging exercise is very simple and can be done right at home. All you need to do is to hang your body from a height. You can use a horizontal bar or you can utilize a tree branch. You may also use the door ledge to hang. I recommend to use the horizontal bar so that it will be easier for your grip and also you can do the exercise anytime you like without going outside of your house at night just hang on a tree branch.
You can hang for about 5 minutes, or 10 minutes for best result. It doesn’t have to be straight 5 or 10 minutes. You can take a break in between repetitions making the repetitions a total of 5 to 10 minutes.
Here’s the important thing to remember, when doing the hanging stretching exercise, it is important to relax the muscles in your upper body as much as you can so that it doesn’t fight the pull of gravity. Most people have tense muscles when doing the hanging exercise. Relaxing your muscles when hanging help gravity to pull your inter-vertebral discs even further.
The hanging exercise is better to be performed in the morning just after awakening and at night just before going to bed. This is the time when your inter-vertebral discs is not so compress and so it will be easier to stretch and lengthen those fibrous tissue. Do this grow taller exercise daily and you can gain noticeable height increase in a short period of time.
