Getting Taller – The Benefits of Riding My Bike

We recently changed our life insurance policy, and the new company required that I go through all the health crap again – getting weighed, measured, and poked with the needle for my blood. While getting measured I said “so, still 5’9″, or am I starting to shrink yet?” I was making a joke.

“Uh, buddy, you’re 5’7″.” I knew he had to be lying… in fact, my driver’s license says I’m 5’10″…so take that.

“Look, I could stretch and give you 5’8″, but there’s no way it’s 5’9″, and forget 5-10.”

And that was the day I started believing that I had somehow shrunk 2-3 inches from my height. I had heard people say that before – particularly old people mind you — but didn’t think that happened to you before you hit your 40’s. Yet here was this professional, with his professional measurement system, swearing I was less tall than I had previously been. But fortunately for me, I ride a bike. And as it turns out, it may help me become the man I once was, yet again:

There is probably not an exercise more effective at increasing height than the bicycle. Bicycling helps your body in many ways. It is a very aerobic exercise and it strengthens your entire cardiovascular system. This means that the HGH and nutrients in your system can circulate more freely. Also, this kind of aerobic exercise tones your muscles. This includes your legs and back which need this strength during critical periods of growth.

I don’t know who Rodney Williams is, nor have I seen his website before, but if you need to put some height back into your life, and you ride a bike…you might as well take advantage of his helpful tips in this article.
