Yes, Squats Will Make You Shorter




What do you think about this video?

xFireSoul: Wait so Military Barbell Press doesn't make you shorter right? I'm 15 and 5'9.5, and after every workout of mine, i do stretches that decompress my spine. So will this exercise affect my growth at all?

adrenaline: I was 6'0 and now I'm 5'4 from squatting too heavy. But at least I can squat 3,500 pounds now.

tyler durden: guys please i need some help over here im 16 years old and im 168 cm,i want to know if shoulder press can make me shorter ? i dont wanna lose a single cm !!!

Angelo: So basically you should be okay if you regularly squat but you also do exercises to correct your posture

Douglas Roussey: The title of this video is misleading. No, squatting does not make you shorter. But it does compress your spine, however your spine decompresses when you lie flat on your bed during sleep. There are also other things you can do to decompress your spine, like hanging on a bar.

FreshFlyTai: I'm like 19 and 5'2ft can I still grow? Should I avoid squats and? 

MrPaperboi13: You are so cute and sexy and hot💘and I have. A crush on you

Ethan Cummings: What if I squatted 20 to 30lbs for 2 days...I'm 15 6"0 and 185lbs is that duration enough to make me shorter?????? Or am I gud?

Martina Duvet: Is this for women to? Can i be shorter when i do squats because i am a women?

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 height back 

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 shorter so I am goner stop going heavy on the weight ? All should I just stop doing squat.

koovidsrcool: As if there werent enough reasons to hate leg day. 

kelsyandnicole: Hey guys. Im 11 years old and i am quiet tall im around about 5 foot something. I dont realy know but there are boys that i like that i dont feel comfortable dating because im so tall and they are quiet short. HELP ME. P.S im not to young to date because im about to go to highschool so im pretty much an teenager.

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

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.

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? :((

Sick Cunt: go to sleep and the next morning you will be the same height!

Mandroid321: "I can kick you in your head and run, ..." LMAO

Katie cx: I guessed this helped 😒

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. 

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....?

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 getting jeolous i want to be 5.3 and by the time 18 id be 5.5 which is the perfect height for me i dont care if get made fun of by tall men because id feel very comfortable with that height so how long do i have to do this im gonna do this all summer now.

NGUx Tank: what if I squat with no weights???

Kyle Schoeppner: ya i was 6'0 and now im like 5'11 and a half 

Just1MorePerson1: so dont squat k thanks. i have a good reason to skip leg day now

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!

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 exewrcises! 

gone too far: YESS OMG THANK YOU SO MUCH

Swashbuckla86: does it? ok I will now squat on a regular basis being 6'2 freakin suck's anyway

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

Baller4Lyfe7: im 14 and 5 foot 7 and am very glad to know about this

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 about.Kudos

Shloxey: This is NOT a video telling you NOT to squat. You need to squat, it's one of the best, most beneficial exercises you can perform to grow. So, SQUAT, SQUAT, SQUAT.

Asad Kawsar: So after workout we have do do some spine stretching to get back those height am i right 

Neil Dash: Hey Eliot whats the word you say @ 5:06 right after "stretching is helpful"? Thanks

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 :)

John Zafiropoulos: Your manner of speech is amazing 

Malik Golden: This really works I did over 150 squats and I was 5'2 to 4'11

Jennifer White: Does it work if you don't use weights O.o

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."

Joey Deak: Squats won't make you shorter PERMANENTLY. It may compress your spine for a few hours like most activities like running etc can. But after a good night sleep it should be back to normal. So no worries guys..

Jackie Cruz: You can't exactly "grow shorter". You can say shrink though :D

mrwhatsmyname3x4: Swimming is good for decompressing the spine

nokitta nokitta: Does it work! I WANT ANSWERS

Colin DeWaay: I read these comments and it's like people don't even watch the video and then comment on how dumb it is...

Rebecca Tilku: When do you get results ?

PMDepot: Bio-energetic-stool? Can someone inform me what this is and where to buy it?

brandon9491: could you hang upside down with like 20lbs to stretch your spine out?

Ryan Duckering: Silly elliott, its not called axial skeleton because of the C2 axis.
