Improving Posture for More Height
Many people rob themselves of extra height because they fail to realize that a good posture is essential for maximum height increase. Correct posture involves more than just standing straight and erect. You must train each part of your body to maintain its proper position. You must learn how to hold your head, your pelvis, your legs, sit correctly, walk correctly, plus numerous other do’s and don’ts to assure you of achieving every possible inch of height.
“TILTED PELVIS PROBLEM”
The pelvis acts as a lever and directly influences our posture and stature. When the pelvis is carried too far forward, the condition is termed a “Milted Pelvis”. This condition directly robs you of extra height and is generally the result of a person with lack of stomach muscles and who usually has a large stomach.
“KNOCK-KNEES AND BOW LEGS”
These two common deformations of the legs, which are not unusual, frequently rob their victims of added inches. Persons with, knock-knees usually walk with the bulk of their weight on the instep (inner arch) of their feet. To remedy this condition, they should walk with their arches raised and with their weight concentrated on the outer rim of their soles. In doing so, the knees will be separated naturally and straighter legs will be developed. Foot doctors can prescribe special shoes (or inserts) for this purpose. The condition known as bow legs is the exact opposite of knock-knees, therefore, the remedy would be to concentrate the bulk of these weight on the instep, instead of the outer rim.
This is a condition where there is an abnormal curvature of the upper part of the spine combined with an unnatural forward thrust of the shoulders. One of the symptoms of round shoulders is carrying the head too far forward.
