    "Squats make you shorter"

    DA FUK

    http://ezinearticles.com/?Do-Squats-...er?&id=3779624

    The best mass building exercises are squats and deadlifts. Doing these exercises on a regular basis will not only make your legs bigger and stronger, it will also generate size and strength in your upper body. In fact, increases in your squat lift will translate into increases in your bench lift. Unfortunately, the saying "everything in life is a tradeoff" is very true and these exercises are no exception. Do Squats and Deadlifts make you shorter?

    The answer is yes. I talked with several power lifters at the gym where I workout. All have told me that they lost 1 inch of height. One power lifter actually had his height measured at a doctor's office and was able to verify a loss of 1 inch. I know from my own experience that I have lost an inch of height.

    Squats load your spine via axial load. This creates a compressive force in your discs, in effect it presses the spinal column down. By shortening your spinal column, squats make you shorter. The same is true for deadlifts, or any other vertical lift, such as standing calf raises or seated shoulder press. That compression force is especially bad if you have a history of lower back pain.

    What do you do? No man likes to lose an inch of height, especially if he is less than 6 feet tall. The leg press is a poor substitute; it creates significant shearing and compressing forces in the spine. This is due to the backward rotation of the pelvis during the movement. Isolation exercises such as leg extensions and leg curls generate tremendous shearing forces on the knees, and are also poor mass-building exercises.

    The best alternative is the one-legged leg press. By placing one foot on the ground, it directs kinetic energy into the ground instead of your spine. Of course, the weight is much lower; doing any exercise with one limb is much more difficult due to the greater need for stabilization.

    So what do you do if you've already lost an inch of height? There are exercises to help you regain height and even gain an inch. These exercises will be discussed in the next article.

    maybe if I could squat 600 lbs.

    I have read though, that you are taller in the mornings upon waking and you shrink throughout the day as your spine compresses. I'm not sure on the order of magnitude, but I don't doubt squats could magnify this effect.

    I seem to have lost a quarter of an inch since I started squatting some srs weight. It was late in the eve when I checked it, tho, so maybe that has something to do with it.

    So does that mean if you do pull-ups with your squat weight hanging for your waist that you will gain and inch of height? How about if you tie said squat weight to the tip of your penis? Will your penis gain and inch?

    I lost height and I've been squatting heavy three times a week since late last year. 2 years ago at a medical checkup I measured at 6'1.3ish and a few months ago I measured at exactly 6'1. Completely srs. And my posture has not changed or anything.

    Now I make sure to do deadhangs after heavy squats to decompress my spine. Not sure if it will help in the long run but I hope it does.

    your height varies throughout the day
    you are taller in the morning and slightly shorter at night

    so unless you measure your height at approximately
    the same time your measurement will differ

    You do shrink from the time you wake up until you go to bed because your spine compresses. As a poster above said, squatting probably just makes this go faster.

    guys some of guy shrink over an inch each day

    when i wake up i am almost 5 foot 10, when i go to sleep it varies but i am usually at 5 foot 8 and a half

    edit: i also noticed after a heavy squatting session i was even shorter than usual, its to be expected, maybe these weightlifters were like 50? Because everyone would of lost an inch of height by then

    i have heard this tooo...

    makes sense that it will decrease your height if you squat A LOT of weight, the heavyness will compress your discs...

    99% of miscers do not need to worry about this since they aren't lifting these heavy weights and their posture likely benefits from squatting thus making them taller from squats

    I lose 1/8 of an inch to squatting at most. Still growing though despite squatting heavy ass weight but then again I'm running AIs almost non stop.

    I'm a teenager and I do heavy 3 rep max squats, and I'm actually growing inches. I was scared of this too, but I do weighted chin-ups to counter the effect. So all you want to do is some chin-ups and your good.
