Sports That Can Naturally Stimulate Height Growth

There are several well-known and popular sports that can naturally stimulate height growth. Discover them below!

Boys grow in height until about 18-19 years old and girls until 16-17 years old. Of course, this is not a rule, you can still grow up to 10 cm if you play a sport that helps, and that's even after the age of 20.

As long as the growth cartilages (epiphyseal-diaphyseal rings) are still present and unused (until around the age of 20-25), growth in height can be achieved by stimulating the bones, which is achieved by playing certain sports.

Discover The Sports That Stimulate Height Growth


1. Swimming

Swimming develops the body and muscles very harmoniously and stimulates height growth. In addition, it is known as one of the most effective stretching exercises for the spine and the entire musculature.

Swimming does not allow a very large increase in height, only a few centimeters. Of all swimming styles, breaststroke (or the popular "frog stroke") is considered the most demanding in terms of stretching and therefore the most effective for height gain.

But beware, competitive swimming under the age of 10 has its drawbacks, especially for girls, who are prone to developing ovarian cysts.

2. Basketball

Basketball is a sport that can stimulate high growth. It can increase height by up to 20 centimeters if practiced from an early age, this extra height being beyond the child's genetic determinism, which can be between the height of the mother and father.

Sometimes children can grow a little taller than their parents, but only a little, so to naturally accentuate growth by more centimeters, basketball is recommended as one of the best options. High jumping causes the skeleton to strengthen as well as lengthen. But it is a sport more suited to boys.

3. Handball

This sport is suitable for both girls and boys but does not provide as much height gain as basketball.

However, the body's development is harmonious, the spine loosens up and prevents spinal disorders such as scoliosis, spondylosis, etc., while also improving the body's health and strengthening the cardiovascular system.

So, handball is also an excellent sport that can stimulate height growth.

4. Volleyball

This sport is quite elevating and is suitable for both girls and boys. It also relaxes the spine and has a good stretching effect, thereby stimulating height growth.

This keeps the vertebrae at the optimum distance from each other, prevents them from getting tired, the joints become strong and flexible and the body's health is evident.

However, it is not recommended to train children very hard and hard until they have been used to the sport for a few years.

5. Performance Dance

Performance dance such as ballet or sports dance allows for quite a lot of growth in height and at the same time develops posture, attitude, and delicacy and also adds to musical, artistic, self-image, and gesture education.

Other sports you can try that can naturally stimulate height growth are Kicking and Stretching, but their effects are much less than performance sports.
