How to Grow Taller after 25 Quickly

When I started height coaching everyone thought I was aiming to show kids under 16 how to grow taller or ensure they reach their max height potential.
But the vast majority of people I’ve worked with are over 25. So here it is – my guide on how to grow taller after 25.

Learning how to increase height after 25 (or anytime after puberty for that matter) is harder than doing it earlier. I’m not going to lie and tell you it’s the best time to be doing it. But I will tell you that I was the tiniest kid in my school and I started after 25. I’m a little over 6’5 these days.

how to grow taller after 25

Around the age of 25 your growth plates generally fuse together at this point you’re never getting two feet taller but it’s entirely possible to add a few inches. I like to lead out with this because we need to manage some expectations here. You can 100% learn how to grow taller after 25 or any age for that matter but you’re not going to become a giant overnight. It does take work and dedication. There are a few tricks you can use to speed things up but this is stuff you want to keep doing week after week.

But even a few inches here and there. Think what that would mean. At 5’4 you might be below average and shorter than everyone you know. Adding just 5 inches brings you to 5’9 – well above average.

And I’m not talking about sticking insoles in your shoes to make you look like a clown. I mean actual, lasting growth.

Getting taller after 25 is a little tougher, and slower, than when you were younger but the quicker you start now, the quicker you’ll start seeing the results.

After 25 your main growth spurts are long gone. Your growth plates have fused and there’s no more natural growth coming if you leave your body to its own devices. You can grow muscle. You can grow fat. But, as far as your body is concerned, your height is pretty set.

But here’s the cool stuff.

First of all, genetics isn’t everything in height. Don’t get me wrong it plays a part. But a good percentage of your height is under your control. And when we start to loosen things up a bit (I’ll talk about that in a moment) we can still promote some growth by biologically telling your body it needs to adapt. We just need to use the language it understands. Don’t worry, no torture rack involved.

Secondly, the vast, vast majority of us are not actually the full height we should be. If you measure yourself in the morning compared to the night before you go to bed you’ll see a difference.

You’ll actually wake up taller but during the day as bones shift you’ll lose height and it’ll loosen back up at night. Now I’m not saying to be tall you just go outside and see people in the morning.

Actually what we do is stop your body from tightening up the way it does and promote looseness where it matters. You keep the height throughout the day and we tease out an extra couple of inches.

It’s pretty cool stuff. It’s how I’m 6’5 myself when most of my growth was long after puberty.

It just comes down to whether you want it bad enough to do something about it.

Are you a Pete or a Ben? (Do you really want to grow taller?)

How to Grow Taller After 25 – What Makes It Possible

grow taller after 25

Normally the human body gets the major growth spurts around 12-16. This depends on gender, genetics, and environmental factors but it’s generally pretty firmly around those ages. By the age of 25 this is normally long gone so the rest is up to us. This is due to the fact that the production of the human growth hormones which is responsible for growth starts to slow down. Humans used to grow a lot bigger but that’s when evolution figured we had to. If anything humanity will be getting shorter going forward as our lifestyle doesn’t require height (from an evolution point of view anyway).

I know the internet has had a bunch of strange ideas on getting taller. I saw a video on growing taller after puberty which claimed drinking was milk was all you need to do. This is based on some pretty flawed logic but the video got pretty popular and the comments were full of people drinking a ton of milk. After the age of 25 that (by itself) is going to do nothing but grow fat. When you’re a kid you need the calcium to help your bones grow and I think that’s where the logic stems from.

But we’ve covered this. The human body calms down after a while and after a certain age, you need to make it grow. It’s done growing by itself.

Now if you don’t want to go the whole hog and get the guide there are at least a few suggestions I can throw at you. Like I’ve said (is it getting through yet?) it is hard to learn how to grow taller after 25. Learning how to grow taller, in general, takes work but after puberty, you need to do what I did which is throw the kitchen sink at it. Just do as much as possible and keep on doing it. Trust me it’ll be worth it.

Dietary supplements.

Probably the biggest part of any height increase after 25 is your diet. Your body needs building blocks to grow it has to have the right nutrition to build and repair.

There are supplements for growth out there. Now I’m *not* talking about these crazy pills shady online companies are trying to sell you. Please don’t touch that stuff. They don’t work. They’re not FDA approved. Who knows what is even in there.

Ideally, you want to get this stuff in your diet but if you make sure you’re getting plenty of calcium and zinc that’ll support the bones (especially if you’re working on stretching out that cartilage) while Vitamins E, A and C is going to help promote growth. Potassium has shown to be useful as well but you’re better to get this from eating a banana.

Aim for a healthy diet. And plenty of water. I mean plenty. You should be doing this anyway but it’s even more important if you want to grow taller. And not just drinking plenty of water once a week but I do mean you need to be doing it every day.

Avoid trans-fat and saturated fat where possible. Partly because the weight gain won’t help your cause (we need to remove load from your spine not add to it) but it will absorb a lot of the nutrition we otherwise want to use to grow taller.

Surgery (No!)

Oh dear me no. We got asked about it so we’re mentioning it here but just please for your sake and my sanity people need to stop doing this. Some idiot got hunks of bone broken so they’d regrow and get him taller. I don’t want to know what he paid for that and I certainly don’t want to hear how much it hurt.

Not an option. Not needed. Absolutely insane.

I really don’t care how badly you want to grow taller after 25. This is just the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard people do.

Exercise and stretching.

Physical activities like doing exercises and stretching plays a significant role in increasing your height after 25, since growth is being stimulated when you do regular exercises. certain sports activities like swimming, cycling and much more would considerably help you increase your height.
Some general notes while exercising:

· Stand upright and keep the back straight with your feet touching each other closely, then raise your hands right above your head stretching them for a few minutes after that, bend without bending your knees and touch your feet with your hands.
· Lay down on your back, then extend the left foot towards the right foot and do the same with your right foot, then bring your feet back to the initial position.

· Hanging on the bar. The prime requirement of this workout is a solid metal bar that can manage to hold your body’s complete body weight. Then jump and hold the bar which is around 6 to 7 feet above the ground and hang as long as you can. You can also swing your body while hanging to avoid tiredness on the bar ensuring that your back is straight throughout this activity.

This exercise can be practiced between 3-4 times a week. It is very beneficial since it helps to elongate the spinal cord and also helps it to be pretty flexible.

· Yoga exercises. Yoga workouts help stretch out your entire body which contributes a lot to maintain the right posture by straightening the back. It’s also great for promoting cell growth and supporting tissue.

Not to mention it will kick your ass if you’re doing it properly. Yoga is great all around. When we started looking into what age do men stop growing and polling people on what they were doing (this is before we found Pete who made everything easier) yoga was the big #1.

Sun Exposure

Sunlight is rich in Vitamin D. Vitamin D helps the body to absorb enough phosphorus and calcium in order to build and maintain strong bones and growth, which contributes effectively to the increase in height at age 25.
Therefore, exposure to sunlight, especially in early morning hours or late afternoon, would allow your body to absorb enough Vitamin D because the ultraviolet radiation is lowest at this time.

4. Proper sleep.
Adequate sleep, like for approximately 8 hours daily is essential since the growth hormones do its work of lightning and thickening your bones when you are asleep. When sleeping you should ensure that you are sleeping in the right posture which is very crucial in attaining proper growth.
You need to eat at least 4 hours before going to sleep and ensure that you are comfortable in your bed.

So sunbathing and sleep help but we’re looking for the package here. I said learning how to grow taller after 25 would be possible – I didn’t say it would be easy. There are a hundred little things which come into play (thus the full guide) but if you get started with these at least you’ll get the idea.
