How can I grow taller at 19 ? Is a commonly asked question by both boys and girls.

    First, after 19 years, it’s expected that for most girls you’ve passed the puberty stage while in some rare cases, boys continue growing even in their 20’s.

    Puberty is the stage of sexual maturation as well as rapid body and brain growth and development.

    It’s the period when the child’s body experiences the greatest growth spurt ( of up to 30 cm, for boys, 27 cm for girls) and transforms into an adult body.

    Puberty stage begins as early as 8 years for some girls and ends by 14 to 15 years for most girls while for boys, it begins around 9 years and ends by age 16.

    Girls normally stop growing by the time puberty ends at 15, while Boys continue growing slowly after the end of puberty until the age of 18 though like earlier mentioned, some continue growing up to early to mid 20’s.

    However, the time when puberty begins and ends varies from individual to individual depending mainly on factors like nutrition and economic development though genes also play a part.[ 1 ]

    Puberty begins earlier for Children who are well nourished right from the time of birth and those living in high income countries.

    Hence, after 18 years for most but not all individuals, the body is almost done growing.

    However, do not despair there’s still some hope for you.

    I say so because I was able to increase my height at as late as 26.

    Long after my puberty years and I’m confident anyone can add a couple of inches as long as you are dedicated to your goal.

    If you diligently follow the steps shared on this article , chances are extremely high you will add at least 1- 3 inches or even more to your height .

    As already discussed on different posts, our final adult height is determined by both genetic and environmental factors.

    That’s why you find that in some cases, all family members may be classified as tall or short on average yet in other cases, some are tall, yet others are short.

    You also need to know that some illnesses or health conditions may determine our final heights and no matter what you do, the only solution is surgery.

    Otherwise, if you can’t afford surgery, you aren’t diseased, genes are on your side, and you are in a good environment, the steps to take to grow taller after 20 years are discussed below.

    Practical steps  to take to grow taller after 18 or at 19.

    1. Believe that you can make it.

    Faith is the basis of all miracles and all mysteries which  can not be analyzed by the rules of science.

    ~ Napoleon Hill

    I assume that you visited this page with hope that there must be a way to gain some height after 18 right ?

    However, the challenge is, you may have read or heard it somewhere that it is impossible.

    But at the same time, you’ve heard or read that there’re folks who grow even after 20 years.

    Of course I can come up with as many as 100 examples of such individuals myself inclusive and many other examples who visit this blog can be read on the Q & A page »» .

    Otherwise, if you haven’t read or you are struggling to come across any that we all know, I will give a few examples off the top of my head.

    At 18, Scott Mctominay was at a diminutive 5′ 2″ struggling to even play for the under 18 Manchester united side due to his size but he experienced a humongous growth spurt of 14 inches and by age 20 years, he was over 6 feet tall making it to the united first team.

    He is currently bouncing at 6’4″.

    David Robinson was only 5’9″ at 17 before experiencing a gigantic growth spurt of up to 9 inches in one year to be 6’6 by 18.

    Between 18 and 20 years, he continued growing by another 6 inches to be 7 feet tall.

    He’s currently 7’1″.

    But those are athletes.., you may retort. Yes, they are athletes which takes us to the next point.

    2. Exercise.

    Exercise is a very critical stimulus for body development and bone growth.

    No wonder it’s one of the 4 pillars of good health.

    Bones are constantly remodeling and transforming throughout life and exercise greatly contributes to the remodeling process.[ 2 ]

    I guess that’s why a number of athletes including basket ball players like CJ MC collum experience late growth spurts.

    Due to the constant running and jumping.

    So, without exercising, bones will simply have no reason to grow especially after 19.

    But you’re not going to join a sports club or engage in active sports at as late as 18 or 20 and expect a growth spurt.

    Besides, you may not even have the time.

    So, what should you do instead ?

    There are a number of grow taller exercises for both legs and torso.

    Save time by focusing on such exercises.

    If you haven’t come across any of such exercises, take heart.

    I will share with you the effective exercises I successfully used.

    A. Leg lengthening and stretching exercises.

    If you wish to increase leg length, there’re proven exercises that you may count on.

    These include cycling with a raised seat, using ankle weights, jumping, jogging and sprinting.

    You can add up to 2 inches in legs or even more if you consistently employ the leg lengthening exercises.

    You can read more about these excises on the how to get longer legs page » » »

    B. Torso lengthening strategies.

    There’s plenty of height hidden in your torso.

    One of the ways to capitalize on the hidden height is to stretch your torso regularly.

    Remember that whenever you sit, or carry heavy loads on your back or over your head, you compress the spinal discs and some of the height lost isn’t regained.

    Imagine how much height you lose when you have to spend plenty of hours seated with poor posture everyday.

    Some of the most efficient stretches can be found on the torso stretching exercises page .

    Besides the stretches, the other effective option is to devise ways to re-hydrate, rebuild and thicken the spinal discs.

    I already shared my experience regarding this plus the different scientifically backed ways you can achieve this in the exercise routine hand book.

    3.Have a dedicated grow taller after puberty exercise routine

    This is one of the most important steps because without an exercise routine, all the other steps are almost irrelevant.

    Without an exercise routine, working out regularly will be close to impossible.

    Just like athletes train regularly, this will act as your training session.

    Most importantly, knowing which exercises to do when is very critical otherwise, some exercises are better done in the morning or during the day while others in the evening.

    So, you will definitely need an exercise schedule that includes all the torso lengthening and leg lengthening exercises or techniques as well as exercises or techniques that increase growth hormone release in the body.

    More on increasing growth hormones later.

    Having a workout plan will also save you time and consistence will be easy to achieve.

    I know creating an efficient grow taller exercise program can be overwhelming especially if you don’t know where to start or how to go about it.

    Not knowing what works when and how.

    How much time to spend on each exercise and alike.

    Again, I have your back because I shared a few tips for creating an effective exercise routine on the grow taller after puberty exercise routine page.

    4. Boost growth hormone release in the body.

    Just like the name itself, growth hormones are simply the engine of growth.

    No wonder folks like Adam Rainer grew throughout life until he died at 51.

    Growth hormones were released throughout his life without regulation because he had a brain tumor but he never stopped growing irrespective of growth plates closure.

    In fact, if you give it a second thought, spontaneous growth hormone release increases rapidly during puberty in both boys and girls. [3]

    And it’s the time when both boys and girls experience humongous  growth spurts.

    Growth hormones aid in the regeneration of degenerated spinal discs, and contribute to bone growth and   remodeling until peak bone mass is achieved between 20 and 30 years.

    To read more about growth hormones and how to naturally boost growth hormone release, visit How to increase H.G.H release article.

    You don’t have to worry about acromegaly unless of course you have a brain tumor.

    5. Stick to the exercise routine for long.

    One of the most important tips and secrets of growing taller after 20 is to consistently stick to the exercise routine for long.

    I started following the exercise routine at 26 years but consistently followed it up to between 29 and 30 years.

    That’s over 3 years of following the same routine.

    During this time, I grew by over 6 inches aggregate from the neck, chest, abdominal region and legs.

    Of course, I will be honest I went days, some times even weeks without following the routine during this time because of unavoidable circumstances but once the storm cleared, I embarked on my journey to height increase.

    That’s how dedicated I was.

    And with dedication, you too can achieve something.

    6. What you eat matters

    There’s truth in the saying, “you are what you eat.

    From your hair, nails, muscles to bones, your body depends upon the nutrients from the foods you eat to grow.

    The most important nutrients in this case are; minerals like zinc and calcium for bone growth and development.

    And Proteins for body architecture, (Protein is the main component of muscles, bones, organs, skin, and nails).

    Other nutrients like vitamins and fats are also important though.

    There’re plenty of food choices but I suggest you don’t follow your cravings and instead focus on the foods that offer the principal nutrients for growth.

    I know switching from your cravings isn’t easy because you feel deprived but you will realize that the same foods that support body growth are also the healthy options and your sugary cravings like candies and cakes or low quality carbs like noodles and pastries not only adversely affect your health, but they are also in part responsible for your stunted growth.

    The food sources that contain the above mentioned nutrients for body growth were covered on the foods that help you to grow taller article.

    7. Imagine it to achieve it.

    Imagination is very important.

    Unfortunately, most of you, don’t even realize that you’ve accidentally used imagination to achieve your goal before.

    Yet all great ideas stem from imagination and almost all achievements happen after imagination.

    In other words, almost all goals are achieved after imagining the desired outcome.

    The power of imagination emanates from faith which is the source of all phenomena we interpret as miracles.

    I’m not trying to be religious here but faith is belief and belief is what keeps us going and where there’s a will… there’s away.

    This is a wide topic which I won’t delve into here but if you can effortlessly imagine how you would look like after growing a few inches taller, then chances are you will see it through.

    More on using mind power to achieve your goals visit the Role played by the brain when it comes to height increase.

    PS: Not all the steps and initiatives can comprehensively be covered here.

    With over 300 pages, the Exercise routine handbook is the right reference to find all the information you need about height increase.

    More initiatives to take especially when executing the grow taller exercises, are covered under The Mistakes to Avoid chapter and the supplementary initiatives also covered in the book. 

    The book is available at online book stores like Amazon, barnes and noble, ebay, and kobo books.
