It takes a lot of backbone to succeed

1. A Bit of Biology.

The spinal column is the tree of life. It is unquestionably an architectural masterpiece.

a) It is composed of thirty-three short super-imposed bones called VERTEBRAE.

a) There are:

    • 7 cervical vertebrae
    • 12 dorsal or thoracic vertebrae
    • 5 lumbar vertebrae
    • 5 sacrum vertebrae
    • 4 coccyx vertebrae

c) Between each vertebrae we find DISKS which are made of Cartrilage that serve as shock absorbers. This padding looks like a doughnut or a perforated wheel.

d) There are holes in each vertebrae that forms the rachidian or SPINAL CANAL where we find the spinal cord.

e) Attached to the spinal cord and protruding between the vertebrae are thirty-one pairs of nerves:

8 pairs of cervical nerves

  • 12 pairs of thoracic nerves
  • 5 pairs of lumbar nerves
  • 5 pairs of sacral nerves
  • 1 pair of coccygeal nerves.

2. Physical Growth is Possible.

Cartilage is a firm yet elastic substance. With the appropriate exercises, you can stretch:

  • The cartilage between the vertebrae in the spinal column
  • The cartilage between the thigh bones and,
  • The cartilage between the tibia or shin bones.

In other words you can grow by developing your cartilage which increase the space between the vertebrae.

Without proper exercise the cartilage becomes soft, it flattens and the bones eventually rub against each other. The exercises in this book will strengthen your disks and increase their elasticity. Both men and women of all ages can add precious centimetres to their height.

In a nutshell, the spinal column is like a coil. By stretching it up and down, forwards and backwards and from side to side, you can become taller.

4. Physical Flexibility

The human body is a marvellous machine capable of unbelievable feats. Just think of those acrobats or contortionists weve all seen at the circus. But keep in mind that to perform as they do takes a lot of time, work and determination.

After serious training, I have managed to maintain the suppleness of my youth. From a stationary standing position, I can bend backwards to a bridge position and return to the standing position.

I can state that without hesitation that GAINING HEIGHT will make you surprisingly flexible; I know because Ive done it.

4. Your Abdomen.

Not only will your body be more supple but it will benefit by beingslimmer.

Obesity hurts your spine by increasing its work load. By developing your stomach muscles you can eliminate the fat that surrounds your muscles.

As well as stretching your spinal column, this book devotes twenty (20) exercises to the muscle toning of your abdomen. Keeping or achieving a slim figure is your symbol of youth and good physical shape.

5. Your Back.

We all know someone who suffers from back-ache; its the number one complaint of the century. Lets look briefly at the causes, the consequences and the cures.

Back pain stems mainly from weak muscles and ligaments excessive physical effort from an untrained back.

As a result, the spinal column is compressed and this compression brings on disk degeneration. The cartilage padding is crushed and back problems begin.

To prevent, treat or eliminate back-ache, you have to do special exercises that stretch and strengthen your spinal column (unless your doctor advises against it).

Always remember to take good care of your spine. When lifting heavy objects you must bend at the knees and not by your waist.

In conclusion, I assure you that Gaining height through exercises does a good job on promoting muscle toning for the back

your back.

6. Mental Activity.

I told you earlier that thirty-one (31) pairs of nerves, called Rachidian nerves, grow out of the spinal cord. This means that the nerves grow between the vertebrae. Some of these nerves send messages to the brain via the spinal cord while others send impulses from the brain to the muscles.

So it makes sense that a healthy spinal column makes for better communication between the brain and other parts of the body. Conversely, a weakening of the back muscles would reduce mental activity.

Just a little food for thought.

7. Exercise

To straighten your spinal column, back up to a wall. Make sure that as much of your body is touching the wall. Pull in your stomach, Expand your chest. Stretch your neck straightening your head. Hold this position for Ten seconds and GROW.

Do this simple healthy exercise everyday. It can do a lot of good and it takes very little time. Only ten seconds.

Now I conclude this chapter by assuring you that Gaining Height Through Exercise will you all grow tall, and improve your health.
