Ben David: I was 6'1 last year or so and now I measured myself at 6'0!! And I added
200lbs to my squat so Its definitely the squats! Anyone have any useful
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.
Baller4Lyfe7: im 14 and 5 foot 7 and am very glad to know about this
Ben Stiller: go to sleep and the next morning you will be the same height!
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???
gone too far: YESS OMG THANK YOU SO MUCH
Phillip Ma'aelopa: does this count if you squat without weights?
Chad M: I used to be 5 ft 7 before I started doing squats after a year and months
of doing squats I lost inch of my height so I have basic made my self

Just1MorePerson1: so dont squat k thanks. i have a good reason to skip leg day now
Toto Pamei: So Elliot with years of squats, have you noticed that you have become
shorter or anybody with experience with squats have experienced that? I
really want want to know cause squat are ny favourite and its the most
weight I lift so just concerned. 17 and Asian 5'7
David Herbst: I am 14 years old and 6'1". I started squatting a couple of months ago. I
can do 225 lbs. I did not feel like watching the video. So....can doing
regular squats stunt my growth....?
FLAPHEAD100: does it? ok I will now squat on a regular basis being 6'2 freakin suck's
Sneaker23Addict: Im 15 years old 200lbs 5'11 1/2, and still growing i usually squat 155(a
45 and a ten on each side) i want to continue getting taller but what
should i do instead of squats if squats stunt my growth?
DJAbatoOfficial: Squats DOES NOT stunt your growth!
Asad Kawsar: So after workout we have do do some spine stretching to get back those

tatsu grey: thanks im 16 and im 5.11 same height as my stepdad and i want to get
shorter because im a child teen and it would be a comfortable height for me
and most of my favorite movie actors are short especially the men and im

perfect height for me i dont care if get made fun of by tall men because id

gonna do this all summer now.
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
nokitta nokitta: Does it work! I WANT ANSWERS
Rebecca Tilku: When do you get results ?
Neil Dash: Hey Eliot whats the word you say @ 5:06 right after "stretching is
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
ana alvarez: Cant this give you back problems?
Brandon Taylor: Yay,I wanna become shorter,I hate being tall,I just don't feel right
David Nguyen: Somewhat correct......you have these things called intervertebral discs
between each vertebrae that act as shock absorbers, which are filled with
H2O. When you have too much axial loading on your spine, some of the water
in the discs seeps out causing you to lose height temporary. However, you
will rehydrate those discs when you sleep. More so, the illusion of
shortness is solely due to your posture. The majority of weight lifters
out there have forward head translation between their pecs are way over
facilitated and their rhomboids and/or intrinsic back muscles are
inhibited. Meaning that their pecs pull their head forward caused by the
origin and insert of the muscle which is straining their cervical
extensors. When this happens your whole biophysical mechanics completely
change. Your cervical spine will not maintain its normal "C" shape curve
and straightens (military neck) and then the rest of your spine follows
causing muscle imbalances throughout your entire body. The reason why you
can maintain your balance is because biomechanically your sella turcica in
your skull (where the pituitary gland resides) is trying to stay parallel
over your coccyx (tail bone). This may cause some muscles to be over
facilitated and some weakness may be found also so that you can maintain
your balance. So I urge you to get a free consult from your local
chiropractor to keep that spine healthy and free of nerve interferences.
Lexi Dallas: Okay. I'm taller than both of my parents at 13 years old and the same hight
as my boyfriend. This might sound weird but I want to be short. And I'm not
sure if this works for all people and the amount you do will determine your
height. So.. Yes?😂
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!
gyovannah guimaraes: How many squats exactly?!
Jordanshoes are the best: Squats dont make you shorter what a bullcrap most strong mans are 2,10+
