    What makes you grow, height wise?

    Hey guys, I'd like to know if any of you know what actually does make you grow taller before and at puberty. Don't tell me genetics, I know that's what determines it, but what actually makes your bones, organs, and everything else grow.

    If you say HGH, then we'd be growing until the day we die and Ronnie Coleman would be 30 feet tall. So what is it?

    it is hGH.
    the reason we stop growing is to do with growth plates. when your growth plates are open, hGH makes you grow taller. at around 21 years old, they fuse and you won't grow any taller.
    it only makes you grow taller if your growth plates are open, which they're not after about 21.

    So if say a 10 year old were to start injecting mass amounts of HGH, he/she could grow insanely tall?

    I know you didn't want to hear this, but genetics do help a lot to determining how tall you will be. The only way to possibly grow taller, is stretching. Like the ones you do in PE classes. If you stretch out you back and legs you migh grow nearly a inch, but I am not a doctor. Also, sit at a upright position, don't lean foward.

    No, I don't care personally about height, nor am I trying to become taller (haha, but you'd see that if you read my post.

    I just want to know what makes you taller. But if what WCC says is right, then if someone were to inject HGH into someone whos growth plates haven't closed, then they could just keep on growing.

    HGH DOES make you grow taller. However, once your growth plates are fused it is impossible for you to grow any taller, no matter what you take. HGH is given to kids if they are too short.

    It's definitely HGH, or more so, the rate at which your body produces it. The reason you're around the same height as your parents is because you inherited their genes which signify the levels of HGH to be produced during your lifetime.

    HGH does not only make you taller. Just injecting wont make you grow, its more genetic.

    Inject mass amounts of hgh at age 10 would probly kill or make the kid ill. Their lifespan would diminish soon after they got past like 7 foot 6 if it worked.

    No squats wont make you taller.

    if you go talk to your doctor, he can tell you how tall you will be. also if you know your height in inches when you were 3 years old, if you multiply that number times 2 that is how tall you will be when your done growing.(works with most people) when i was 3 years old i was 3'1''(37 inches) and my doc told me i would be 6'2''(74inches)

    Taking HGH when your little wont make you grow any taller then what your final height is meant to be, it just speeds up the process of getting to that height.

    Taking HGH when your growth plates are fused, if its the right Hormone it will help grow muscle but wont make you any taller.

    Squats help to increase you GH Production. I'd be willing to bet most compound stressful excersies help in that area too. Another bet would be Deadlifts but not nearly as much as Squats. Squats > All

    of course it's the same hGH you get from working out.
    theoretically yes; squats and leg presses cause GH release. but it's used to make the muscles grow; not to make you taller.
    any difference it would have on height would be minimal. if these exercises really did release enough GH to make you grow taller, teen bodybuilders would all be giants.

    from my experience, squats make me shorter temporarily. after doing a few sets of heavy squats, i always feel shorter.

    squats increase GH levels more than deadlifts do.

    but leg presses increase GH levels more than squats do.
    the difference is insignificant really; but 10RM leg presses do cause slightly more release of GH than 25RM squats (GH levels in the leg press peak at a 10RM workload; GH levels in the squat peak at a 25RM workload):
    http://nsca.allenpress.com/nscaonlin...O%3E2.3.CO%3B2
    so you can't judge how good an exercise is by its effect on GH levels. if you could, leg presses would be the best exercise. they're good, but definately not the best.

    as for squats vs. deadlifts, don't compare them please. that's like comparing bench press to bent-over barbell rows. they're both extremely good exercises, but their focus is on different muscle groups.
    squats work the legs better than deadlifts, but deadlifts work the back a lot better.
    squats > deadlifts for legs, but deadlifts > squats for elsewhere.
    comparing the two is just stupid.

    8 foot 5 inch man the article is about

    It says :

    His growth spurt began at age 14 after a brain operation apparently stimulated the overproduction of growth hormone.

    But you need the growth hormone to get to your bone cells, it would just make you taller subcutaneously. And the pituitary gland slowly stops the growth hormone releasing which is why anti-aging clinics prescribe GH, and old people get old. It's like the fountain of youth.
