You are doing fine.


Here is my article on the subject.

Increasing the Height

You did not say you are 23 years old you are. But you are under 30 years of age.

In rear cases, you can increase the height up to age 30.

Cycling is a good exercise and fun too.

You need to adjust the seat so that when you paddle from seating position you will actually stretch your legs, it is a difficult position but doable. For safety you need to be on track and not in traffic, safety first.

The FEW things I did at least helped me.


Not just playing in water, but serious laps type swimming, do not try to beat the clock but steady full strokes swimming. Remember slow and steady wins the race.

Stretching exercises on floor.

Find them on line.

Chin ups.

Full stretch type.

Swinging from a rope.

Full stretch climbing.

In other words do things that require stretching.


In the morning after good night sleep every one is about 1/2 inch to 1 inch taller. This is because the soft tissue between the bones recovers during the time when there is no weight on them.

Older people loose height due to bone loss. I was 5', 7'' I am only 5', 5".

Issue of Genes:

You know only the active genes but genes can stay dormant for generations.

I believe that every one has some tall height genes, dormant or active; I again believe that certain exercises can activate those.

Again Swimming:

You will start out with half a lap and build up day by day, half a lap at a time. Then you will swim non stop for 1/2 an hour.

The speed is not important but you must use various strokes and do them correctly, completely, slowly and perfectly. This way you will have full stretch, and its benefit.


Under strict supervision of a doctor they do wonders but the side effects are delayed and unpredictable so doctors do not like to use them.

Surgical Procedures:

There are surgical procedures but most doctors will not do them till the person is 30 years or so. They also have to be very short.

There's not much you can do to grow taller. Your genes are the determining factor, and since your parents are fairly short, you probably won't be growing very tall. Just take your daily vitamins and think tall thoughts. As I recall, I didn't grow any after I reached 18.

Well it's really different for everyone. The men on my dad's side of the family didn't really grow any until they were like 23. I'm 14 and like 5'5" and my dad was 5'7" up until he was 20 and he's like 6' now.
