tips to regain my height? :((
Cailon Moshiri: Would me using 20lb Dumbells for each hand (looking to get heavier weights
because 20lbs isn't much of a challenge anymore) for Shoulder/Millitary
Presses stunt my growth?
I don't care if this is an embarassing, dumb question.. lol.

hamza hassan: I always watch your videos and still will , can 0lz give me workout routine
for beginners like me, I always watch your video but never actually worked
out because am always busy
David Denalo: Squats don't stunt growth. Growth is determined by genetics. Heavy squats
involve axial loading which will exaggerate curvature on spine this is only
a temporary "shortness" that can be fixed by exercises Elliot has mentioned
that fix your posture back to original. There is nothing to worry
NGUx Tank: what if I squat with no weights???
Phillip Ma'aelopa: does this count if you squat without weights?

David Herbst: I am 14 years old and 6'1". I started squatting a couple of months ago. I

FLAPHEAD100: does it? ok I will now squat on a regular basis being 6'2 freakin suck's

DJAbatoOfficial: Squats DOES NOT stunt your growth!

tatsu grey: thanks im 16 and im 5.11 same height as my stepdad and i want to get

mrwhatsmyname3x4: Swimming is good for decompressing the spine
Logan Botica: Im 6 foot 8 inches (203cm) I dont give a freak i just wanna get MASSIVE!
YeH Budyd: Ok so GUYS!! this is what he said, Unless something I didnt
undersstand.....Sqauts make you shorter, but not like your bones are
getting shorter its your posture that goes down....but basically there is
exercises that prevents you from getting shorter by overhead pressing
John Zafiropoulos: Your manner of speech is amazing
Ollie Gregory: What of goblet squats do they have the same detrimental effect?
dalton graham: ok so basically (for the ignorant people), squatting makes you shorter, but
stretching your spine and doing other exercises of that sort will get your
Jacqueline Cruz-Salcido: You can't exactly "grow shorter". You can say shrink though :D

Michael L: I am getting really disheartened atm. I wanted to start the 5X5 so I did. I
get that stupid 'butt twink' so that's putting me off because I know i'm
gonna get injured. Secondly, as soon as add any weight (the 20kg bar) When
i squat i get a tingly sensation on my left leg, on the outside, just to
the left of the knee. Can anyone help?
Nathalie Smistakamp: I am 16 and 6'9 i want to be short help me
PMDepot: Bio-energetic-stool? Can someone inform me what this is and where to buy
Ryan Duckering: Silly elliott, its not called axial skeleton because of the C2 axis.
zedzimz: does this also apply to deadlifts too??!
Rue Star: Is this squats without weights ? Xx
Jack Sharpe: So what Elliot has done is used a comprehensive physiological vocabulary to
justify his attempt to make a truth claim. In science, if you are going to
establish a rule or truth claim (i.e. Squats make you shorter) you have to
provide empirical evidence.
In short, until evidence is provided, nobody should accept the claim that
"squats make you shorter."
Emilio Martinez: Is this really true?
ginger: I think you should publish your incredible findings of this "human
shortening technique". This ideally should be presented during the next
American Medical Association conference during one of their satirical
sessions. It will be a hit.
brad skux: This is true, but squats only stunt your growth if your squatting a really
high amount of weight.
Malik Golden: This really works I did over 150 squats and I was 5'2 to 4'11
zzroller420: Considering yoga now.
punkmedusa: Flexibility in gyms has always been neglected, nice to think a big strong
guy like u endorses it and encourages us to balance our strength..really
the key to fitness and to life :)
Jennifer White: Does it work if you don't use weights O.o
Yo Mamma: Elliot, you're one of the very few guys on Youtube I actually respect
because you know what you're talking about, even though I'm still skeptical
about this particular topic. You seem to have good knowledge on anatomical
and physiological terms which is great because we need more people like you
on Youtube, kudos brotha. This all coming from a Fitness and Health
student. Keep it up!
ana alvarez: Cant this give you back problems?
gyovannah guimaraes: How many squats exactly?!
Brandon Taylor: Yay,I wanna become shorter,I hate being tall,I just don't feel right
Jordanshoes are the best: Squats dont make you shorter what a bullcrap most strong mans are 2,10+
emmanuel torres: I'm 16 and just started training a month ago I've been squatting and dead
lifting but I'm already short and don't want to be any shorter :( I've
still been growing this month i grew almost 2 inches but what i really
wanted to know is can squatting stunt my growth, right now I'm 5'5 i would
at least like to be 5'7. please answer my question anyone. I'll keep
training either way because I'm very happy with the result I'm getting.
frankiezzzzzz100: if u really think about it we should all be stretching before and after a
workout that should enough no need for yoga
stacey valenzuela: Everyone needs to stop denying, even though you wish it wasnt true, it is
still the fact. I was originally 5'3 and after working out a lot and doing
squats im now 5'0 and im only 20!! Dont believe me? Next time go to the gym
and look at all the people around you, everyone is like a midget. The only
tall people you see have probably only been there for a week or are just
cardio junkies, and dont really do weight lifting. I know it sucks, but its
the truth. The only thing you can do is just get a good night sleep,
stretch, and let your body take in a bunch of calcium. Good luck everyone
Antonio Hernandez: Wow! By doing this exorcise "Squats" make you grow shorter but there's no
exorcise to make you taller. THAT'S SO UNFAIR!!!
