I am 1m76
Good evening everyone,
Here I am an 18 year old man and I am 1m76 tall. I wanted to know if I still have the possibility of taking a few cm? I had not taken anything since I was 16 and I suddenly regained 1 cm since this summer by putting myself on a diet. According to my health record, I should have been 1m85!
I read that the growth definitely stops around 20-21 years old and I hope to be able to reach the 1m80.
Is it possible ? What do you have to advise me? I did some weight lifting but I stopped seeing that it’s apparently bad for growth. Thank you for your answers.
Strength training is not bad for growth unless you start lifting extremely heavy … which never happens unless you give your all in training only in strength.
Bah personal ‘my growth stopped at 14 years old and since then I have gained 1cm (176cm) more.
I read that by doing exercises to relax the spine you can gain 1 or even 2cm MAX, thanks to the space gained between the vertebrae … but not 100% sure that it works.
you can try to decrease your lordosis and your kyphosis to take a few centimeters. Not sure it won’t work against
