💪 Does Lifting Weights Make You Short?

Оценок: 7651 | Просмотров: 275237
See how to naturally reverse your “low testosterone”, burn fat, build muscle and look younger: 👉👉 http://drsam.co/yt/GreatPhysique Or discover the only 4 ways to build muscle: 👉https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6ZSOu2CinM =============================================== 💪 Does Lifting Weights Make You Short? =============================================== I got a question from one of my viewers asking if “lifting weights will make me short”? This is an interesting question because growing up, I was told to not lift weights because it would make me short. In fact, I was told to “play basketball” if I want to grow up tall. And, not to play soccer either, since that’ll also make me short. Of course, this is just idiotic and stupid. Playing basketball doesn’t make you tall - It just happens that TALL people play basketball. And playing soccer doesn’t make you short either -- it just happens that “shorter” people tend to play soccer. And similar to lifting weights, most “muscular” people are shorter simply because they don’t need to gain as much muscle to look big… Versus someone like me who is 6’3”, I need to gain a lot of muscle to fill out my large frame. So it’s a lot more work for me. However, certain exercises can cause damage to your spine, not allowing you to get as tall as you could. Additionally, some exercises CAN actually improve your height, make your shoulders and rib cage bigger, if you do them during puberty and up to the age of maybe 21-23 or so. And I’ll get to the exercises in a minute. However, genetics aside, the secret to getting taller is to lower your estrogen and increase your testosterone and GH/IGF levels at the same time. You see, estrogen fuses the end of the bones and thus, prevents them from growing. This is why girls are actually taller than boys when everyone first starts puberty … But after about a year or two of puberty, once estrogen shoots up, the ends of the bones “fuse” and growth and height slows down dramatically. Yet, the boys keep getting taller and taller , slowly… because they don’t have as much estrogen and have higher testosterone. And when you have a lot more growth hormone and IGF, your bones will keep growing because the ends haven’t “fused” yet because of the high estrogen. And this is why women who typically have naturally big breasts, are shorter. While taller women generally have smaller breasts -- again, due to estrogen. And you’ve probably heard the saying about guys who are “short, fat, bald and hairy”. Well, the “short and fat” is due to higher estrogen and the “bald and hairy” is due to higher DHT levels. And in both of these cases, these men also have LOWER testosterone levels. However, all of this only matters if you’re under the age of 23 and are still going through puberty. And yes, genetics does play the biggest role here - however, if done correctly, you can “naturally” grow an extra 2-4 inches or more. And yes, I’ve seen this happen many times. Now, regarding the exercises that can potentially keep you shorter -- don’t do anything that compresses the spine. This means no squats, overhead presses, deadlifts, shrugs and similar exercises. Instead, focus on doing pull ups and “chins”. Not machine pull-downs. You want to pull yourself up and at the bottom, hang for 2 seconds. This makes your shoulders wider by stretching out your scapula and decompress your spine, which will help accelerate growth for your nerves, CNS and bone growth. Of course there are diet factors as well, but that’s for another video. Just do your best to eat as natural as possible and eliminate any foods that can increase your estrogen and decrease your testosterone. #muscle, #weightlifting ======================================== ========================================­ Thank you for watching.

5 feet 7 20yr at the moment. I was wondering about muscle and height increase i had my lazy period for a while but i wanna know more about the body and testosterone. I watched your video and im interested in trying it. Many people i know suggested to increase testosterone but at the moment im just doing calisthenic workouts with a couple of dumbbell exercises to keep my body i guess fit/flexible. Im not yet eating enough healthy food and enough calories and that's just one of many things im missing. I began learning more about the body but that's from website to website which is helpfull in a way but more information is always welcome. Currently im far from truly understand how my body works so i hope to change that in a couple days/weeks/months etc. We only have one body so we gotta keep it healthy for as long as possible I seek. A healthy body, good muscles and a couple extra centimeters if possible I'll be searching for as much information as i can and hope i can combine it with your information and make something good out of it. If you have anything which could help me on the way please find it in your time to share it with me. Thanks for sharing what you know i appreciate it.

What about body weight squats
Dr Sam Robbins (7 месяцев назад)
Perfectly fine and very good. You can slow it down if it gets too easy for you.
Teamkillermaniac (7 месяцев назад)
Deadlifting and squat are like main parts in my workout..
Dr Sam Robbins (7 месяцев назад)
Okay, well… you have a decision to make. It’s up to you. You’re in control of your body. I’m just giving you the facts from someone who has 35+ years of experience (me!). Besides, most people I know who have been squatting and deadlifting almost all have hip and back issues later in life (including ME!).
Shaikh GInobli (7 месяцев назад)
If no overhead presses and shoulder presses, what exercises do I do for my shoulders...?
Dr Sam Robbins (7 месяцев назад)
Laterals, dumbbell upright rows, etc. You CAN do overhead presses, just don’t go super heavy. Do it at the END of your shoulder workout where you’re more tired and need to use lighter weight.

Is squats with light weight ok? And does it work to do squats and then do pullups afterwards to be left with zero?
Dr Sam Robbins (7 месяцев назад)
That can work, just don’t go too heavy. You can do all sorts of leg exercises first, tire them out and maybe end with lighter weight squats which will “feel” heavy. You can also just hang for a min or so after each squat set.
caleb vincent (7 месяцев назад)
What if after i did my workout involving squats i did a spine decompression stretch to counter the comprossion because of the squats?
Dr Sam Robbins (7 месяцев назад)
That will help.That can work, just don’t go too heavy. You can do all sorts of leg exercises first, tire them out and maybe end with lighter weight squats which will “feel” heavy. You can also just hang for a min or so after each squat set.

But wouldn’t doing squats and pull downs increase testosterone and hgh making you taller? And what about doing bench presses?
Dr Sam Robbins (7 месяцев назад)
Testosterone isn't going to make you taller, especially if it’s converting more to estrogen. Pull-ups is more powerful than pull-downs. Bench press is fine. Remember, you can’t grow if you’re compressed and most people do exercises incorrectly anyway. You have plenty of time to do squats later in life, IF you want.
Ali Khan (7 месяцев назад)
Hey Doc, I was doing a middle heavy weight bench press a few months ago and I came home feeling sore all across my right shoulder/clavicle area. Ever since, I feel a jamming sensation in my clavicle area like from time to time as if something is locking and I move to unlock it. It only hurts when its jammed other than that all good. I'm 15, 6'4 if that has anything to do with it. Will I heal because I don't want to carry this issue into later life, Thanks.
Dr Sam Robbins (7 месяцев назад)
Yes, you’ll heal. Bench presses cause most people shoulder problems, especially us call guys - I’m 6’3”. We have long arms, it’s not a good exercise. Better to start with isolation and finish with lighter compounds movements for us taller guys.

Does lifting weight one time can reduce my height. I actually have taken my friend in shoulder for one or two times he is heavy like 80 kilos does that make me short I will be waiting for the answer. Thank you sir!😊

Is leg presses a better alternative than squats? I've also heard that squats activates your growth hormone, is that true?
Dr Sam Robbins (7 месяцев назад)
Exercise activates GH, so let’s leave it at that. Leg Press has its own set of problems and many times, it can compress the spine more. For quads, I prefer high reps and lighter weights. Easier on your joints and back and will build more muscle too.
Lawreading Green (7 месяцев назад)
Does sit-up decompress your spine?
Dr Sam Robbins (7 месяцев назад)
No, in fact the help open the spine up more, it’s very good for the lower back.

Lazz (7 месяцев назад)
basketball does make you taller.
James Mummery (7 месяцев назад)
What’s worse for u front squat or back squat
Dr Sam Robbins (7 месяцев назад)
Back squats because you can lift more weight and thus, more pressure on your lower back and hips.

Ben Scimon (7 месяцев назад)

Dr Sam Robbins (7 месяцев назад)
dope memer (7 месяцев назад)
I've heard from other doctors that deadlifts would actually increase growth because it increases hgh levels
Dr Sam Robbins (7 месяцев назад)
That’s just silly. EXERCISE increases GH. Deadlifts and squats may do so a TINY bit more, but not enough to actually cause growth. You need a lot more GH all day long, like a baby, to grow from GH

i stop lifting weights at 19-n and i grow taller 7cm before age 20 and now im 6'1 feet
Gallafia (7 месяцев назад)
If squats are a no go then what should I do for legs because a squatting/lunging motion is how the muscles are activated.
Dr Sam Robbins (7 месяцев назад)
Well, you can of course work hamstrings with leg curls and thus, that will help legs grow. As far as the quads, an ideal workout would be to first start with leg extensions and pre-exhaust your quads. From there, you can do walking lungs. You don’t need much weight and if you did, you can hold some light dumbells in your hands, no need to put weight on your traps/upper back. At this point, your legs are going to be tired. Now you can do high rep leg presses or front squats. Because you’re quads are tired, less weight will be needed and thus, less pressure on your back, spin and hips. And if you do squat, don’t break parallel. The “ass to heels” method is murder on your lower back.

Do farmers walks/carries affect your spine?
Dr Sam Robbins (7 месяцев назад)
Yes, they’re pulling you down. Not as bad as squats, but the do compress the spine - especially with heavy weights. They can also cause neck problems over time.
Abdul Youssef (7 месяцев назад)
Would weighted pull-ups benefit us more as opposed to normal pullups
Dr Sam Robbins (7 месяцев назад)
No. Use enough “weight” to do proper pullups, where you are squeezing and contracting the back muscles. If you’re light and very strong and can do your own body weight for 15+ reps, then it’s time to add weight. But if you hang weight and aren’t doing the pullup correctly, that’s not good, nor will it make you taller.
Afiq Fajar (7 месяцев назад)
Im thinking the same.. Because normal pullups are not challenging since my weight is only about 62kg. Would be great if it does add some height growth.

What shoulder exercise should I do if I want to avoid overhead press?

what if after a set of squat i hang for a bit to decompress the spine?
Dr Sam Robbins (7 месяцев назад)
It can help, but it’s not going to undo the damage. But it’s good to do anyway. Remember, just sitting can compress the spine, so hanging is something we should all do daily.

Does masturbating stunt height and does it decrease testoereone
Dr Sam Robbins (7 месяцев назад)
No, it doesn’t stunt growth and it increases testosterone and after you orgasim, there’s a decrease. At the end, it balances itself out.

Best exercises for obliques?
Dr Sam Robbins (7 месяцев назад)
Don’t do them. They are one of the fastest growing muscles in the body and they make your hips and waist WIDE, you don’t want that. Lifting weight stimulates the obliques plenty. You want to focus more on the lower abs primarily and uppers abs secondary. Also the upper serratus
