Regular exercise has many benefits. It strengthens your muscles and bones, helps you to maintain a healthy weight, and promotes HGH production.

Children in school should get at least an hour of exercise a day. During this time, they should focus on:

  • strength-building exercises, such as pushups or situps
  • flexibility exercises, such as yoga
  • aerobic activities, such as playing tag, jumping rope, or biking

Exercising as an adult has its benefits, too. In addition to helping you maintain your overall health, it can also help reduce your risk of osteoporosis. This condition occurs when your bones become weak or brittle, resulting in bone density loss. This can cause you to “shrink.”

To reduce your risk, try walking, playing tennis, or practicing yoga several times a week.

4. Use yoga to maximize your height

If targeted posture exercises aren’t your thing, give yoga a try. This whole-body practice can strengthen your muscles, align your body, and help with your posture. This will help you stand taller.

You can practice yoga in the comfort of your own home or in a group setting at your local gym or studio. If you aren’t sure where to start, search for a beginner yoga routine on YouTube.
