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?

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?

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

regular squats stunt my growth....?

45 and a ten on each side) i want to continue getting taller but what

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

exercises that prevents you from getting shorter by overhead pressing

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