Hanging

Well there is nothing complicated to this exercise it is as easy to do as it looks. You simply hang from a horizontal bar to hang your body. This simple exercise doesn't only strengthen your spine but it also helps extend your spine. The gravitational pull on your body when you hang helps the spine extend and elongate as well as relax.

Touching your toes

This is another simple exercise to do to help your body stretch that little more. In order to do this you simply stretch arms above your head and then bend over to bring your hands down to touch your toes. You must remember to keep your legs straight while you do this to feel the back of your legs stretch. If you feel the stretch on the back of your leg to be too uncomfortable you can bend your knees slightly to ease the pain. You can repeat this exercise and each repetition should last a few seconds each.

Two straight legs up

This exercise is performed by laying face down with your hands down by your sides. The idea is to raise your legs as high as possible whilst ensuring that you keep your feet together. Do this a few times with every repetition lasting for about 3 to 4 seconds before the next one.

The downhill

To perform this exercise you need to stand tall and have both of your arms stretched behind you. Whilst in that position then forward and then gently push your arms as high as possible behind you towards your head. Time each repetition so that it lasts roughly around 4 to 6 seconds.

Above we have just listed a few of the exercises that can help you stretch your body appropriately to gain extra strength and potentially height. But the exercises don't have to just stop there.
