    Default I wanna grow taller :\ (for looking great and having more confidence )

    My age is 22 (male) . I wanna grow taller . I knw many of u gonna say that I am mostly done growing but to be honest , I really hate hearing that coz I wanna grow to atleast 3 inches more .

    I am 5'5" (now thats less from american standard ) though thats the average height of indian men here .
    But modern indian generation tends to be taller (I think most guys these days tend to be atleast 5'8")

    I slouch a bit . I am desperate for 3 inches more .. Any workout for growth ?coz someone told me pull ups grow ur height

    Sorry no, no workout is going to make you gain height. If you're active and eat well there is a tiny chance you may grow more, I do know people who grew a little in their early 20's but it's very rare, and it's not very much. 3 inches at your age, you'd have to be 1 out of millions to grow that much - even if you gained 1 inch I'd be very surprised.

    Sorry.

    I agree with AToE.

    Weight training will not make you grow taller. Your height will be primarily a result of your very own genetics.

    Pull Ups are a great back exercise which can 'assist' in enhancing your posture, however, they will not make you grow physically taller in height.
    Consistency is the key

    I think I remember someone telling me ages ago that getting your spine re-aligned helps add some height. But that must be just helping you improve your posture again so you stand up straighter?

    It's ok to be short, be proud in 5'9 and always played with athletes that were 6-2 and up. But do not have SMS(small man syndrome) Before I found PL/BB, all I wanted to do is get bigger how ever way I can. which i wrong

    Take it from someone who was a sloucher like yourself. Work out, train hard and you will find yourself growing taller. Not literally, but your posture will improve from your hips, up your back, and all the way through your neck. Stay focused and dedicated.

    Being taller won't improve your confidence; it's a fact, people with confidence issues still have them, if they don't address them, even if they undergo surgery to change their looks etc.

    A wise man once told me stuck in the same dilemma as you except he was 5'4", "If I'm done growing up as tall as possible, I'm going to work hard in the gym and grow as WIDE as possible"

    It's been working for me lately And honestly (5'7" here) the only time I ever had a problem with my height is when other people brought it to my attention, and even then it was THEIR problem, I could care less. Just don't let it bother you, and try not to slouch, you'd be surprised how appearance plays a big role in how you look to others (go figure lol).
