DJAbatoOfficial: Squats DOES NOT stunt your growth!

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?

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 

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

Phillip Ma'aelopa: does this count if you squat without weights?

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

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.

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!

brad skux: This is true, but squats only stunt your growth if your squatting a really high amount of weight.

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

Omid Menawari: Squats dont make you shorter what a bullcrap most strong mans are 2,10+

Nathalie Smistakamp: I am 16 and 6'9 i want to be short help me

Heisenberg: I just thought of starting to do squats tomo when I saw this :O

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

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.

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.

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

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.

mrwhatsmyname3x4: Swimming is good for decompressing the spine

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

John Zafiropoulos: Your manner of speech is amazing 

Brandon Taylor: Yay,I wanna become shorter,I hate being tall,I just don't feel right

ColdBoi: I've been wondering about this question today.

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

frankiezzzzzz100: if u really think about it we should all be stretching before and after a workout that should enough no need for yoga

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.

Akbar Gaziev: squats and deadlifts ,benh press,hang and snatch,cleand and jerk,clean press,etc are rpoven to increase ur HGH and tesosterone therefore making U TALLER{ IF UR UNDER 20 \STILL GROWING]

Jacqueline Cruz-Salcido: You can't exactly "grow shorter". You can say shrink though :D

gyovannah guimaraes: How many squats exactly?!

benjaav07: as of today id stop squats

zedzimz: does this also apply to deadlifts too??!

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?😂

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

Ismail Othelo: Thank you so much Elliot for the info .Please, Can you tell me how to train my legs without getting shorter ?

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! 

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

CHEN ZENN: freak!! i sud hv never military pressed so much wen i was 17 yo, DAMN IT!!!

Eric Nguyen: smaller?

weingreds: So is it only if you're squatting with a weight on your shoulders?

Logan Botica: Im 6 foot 8 inches (203cm) I dont give a freak i just wanna get MASSIVE!

Niccole Deng: Does it work! I WANT ANSWERS

Rue Star: Is this squats without weights ? Xx 

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

Tyler Z: Yo Elliot you should be a doctor 

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."

Matt Grainger: Love all the Sport & Exercise Science, by far the most informative videos on Youtube! 

Darius Anderson: that shirt is legit, i gotta get me one

ana alvarez: Cant this give you back problems?
