Default Excercises to get taller?

Well here is my issue/question, are there any excercises I can do to stretch my height?

My problem is that I haven't seem to grow as large as I should be xD I'm 5'10, which is an average height for a guy my age BUT, my younger brother got a little bit taller than me, and that can't be good.

So yeah, I would appreciate any advises or excercise routines.

Thanks~! Nanoja~

Monkey bar hanging gives you long arms. Height is pretty much just genetics and nutrition. I'm taller than my older brother as well. Don't worry about it and just get your calcium.

;-; I hear jumping a lot helps in growth, but I don't know if it works for everyone.

I haven't grown in 8 years... Dx; forever short.

Jumping works out your calfs and makes you jump higher.

I heard jump rope is a extremely good excercise for the lower leg area and helps your height.

I saw a TV special on how it affects height, and a lot of the kids grew several inches. But, nobody knows if it was due to their genetics or if jump roping actually was the factor. Regardless, they were still taller than most girls... but it could only be a big influence to ages 7-12 (The ages the girls were in who participated in the jump rope activity).
These girls were also national jump rope competitors so...

It is genetics..I don't believe there's anything that will make you taller. You may grow a little taller over the years, or you may not. And if you don't mind me asking, whats your age? Cause males don't stop growing until they're in their 20s, find out when your father stopped growing, and that may be when you'll stop growing.

@ hanging off monkey bars or jumping... lol

It's mainly based on Genetics + Hormones + Nutrition, at least thats what studies suggest.

Since you're 19 you're a little late to the party. the best you can do to grow taller is to join a volleyball team, play basketball, and eat healthy. As long as your body has the vitamins, and your body believes you need the height, you can end up growing quite a bit. Everyone I know who played volleyball throughout high school grew way taller than everyone in their family despite it being genetically crazy. One kid in my class, everyone in his family including his brother his own age was under average height (they were around 5'7"), and after those 4 years of volleyball (he was short beforehand) he ended up being 6'5" and with hugely long arms.

Volleyball, Jump rope, Basketball, all of these 'stretch' the muscles that allow you to grow properly. Jump rope gives you longer legs, basketball typically gives both upper and lower height and volleyball typically gives both. I'd imagine if you don't like volleyball/basketball a mix of jump rope and monkey bars would work.
