Leg Lengthening With Cycling – Does Cycling Increase Height?
Organisms continuously face challenges as they grow and develop, and are equipped with an adaptive plasticity as the traits develop in response to the imposed conditions.
In the same way, when you raise a bicycle seat and your legs stretch out to reach for the pedals the body will receive a communication that the legs reaching the pedals is a matter of survival. This will enable the legs to adapt to the environmental alteration over time. And that’s one of the ways cycling does increase height.
Since adaptation is a process, your body will take some time to adapt and the initial increment in leg length will take about 1 – 4 months depending on many other factors like growth hormones, nutrition, sleep and a like.
Riding a bike with raised saddle also lengthens your leg muscles by stretching the calf muscles as well as the popliteal fossa(part behind the knee). This gives the shin bone room to grow freely when stress on the legs is well applied.
The bones of your leg have roughened patches on their surfaces where muscles are attached.
When your muscles contract and stretch, they pull the bone they’re attached to, making your leg move.
With cycling exercise for leg lengthening during or after puberty, An indoor or outdoor bike will do.
Your success in using this technique will depend on the type of bicycle you use among other factors. Outdoor bicycles like the Schwinn Hybrid Bike >>, or the hero bicycle if you are in India are very effective because they are high enough and their seat posts are customizable.
if you choose an indoor bike, then a spinner bike like the Sunny Health & Fitness SF-B1110 Indoor Cycling Bike will be effective because of the resistance it offers while pedaling unlike an ordinary indoor bike.
Then have that bike seat raised about 1/4 to half an inch higher than the level where you can cycle comfortably and then do the cycling exercise.
Now, most indoor bikes come with short stems which makes it impossible to raise the seat to your desired height.
If you face such a challenge, An adjustable Bike Seat post >> will do. Just make sure you get the right size for your bike.
The bicycle will have to be stationary when lengthening the legs with cycling but if you don’t have a stationary bike and you are facing budget constraints, there’s no need to hit the gym as long as you have an outdoor bike.
Just customize an outdoor bike by purchasing a Ibera Easy Utility Bicycle Stand IB-ST2
to make the bike stationary. But these tend to have compatibility issues so be sure it fits your bike.
The cycling Exercise with raised seat
cycling for limb lengthening routine isn’t that difficult, neither is it that easy. The challenge here is getting used to riding while seated on a raised saddle but with time, you will get used.
If you are starting out, raise the seat by quarter an inch then when you achieve the quarter gain in height, you may take it to half an inch and it may take you about four months to gain one inch in legs. Bones take on average 2 to 4 months to fully remodel.
Focus on the way the leg stretches. Make sure that the leg fully stretches out by attempting to pedal or cycle with the instep of your foot.
Make sure you do the entire exercise casually and don’t attempt to be in a rush or sprint cycle. It will seem boring so playing some music or listening to an interesting program while subconsciously focusing on the way the legs stretch may help.
success stories for the different leg lengthening with cycling routines are covered in the ebook !
You may come up with a different routine and still see results as many report results with different routines.
Though 1/4 an inch may be negligible and some will notice but may not tell you directly because to them it will be unbelievable, to you it will be an achievement and it will hearten you to carry on since your labors will be rewarded and before you know, you will be an inch taller in legs.
During the course of this exercise especially during day, you may feel pinches of slight pain once in a while in the shin bones and around the knee cap and all this will be a sign that your bone is growing.
With this exercise, i was able to grow about 1/4″ for the first month, though later it took longer. You may grow even more in a less time considering that i approached the exercise the lazy way, doing approximately 5 minutes a day because longer hours never worked for me.
There are some who spend longer time cycling with raised saddle and they see results without increasing growth hormones release in their bodies.
It’s however imperative to note that growth hormones are very critical for bone growth so if you ride for long hours and also increase growth hormones then you may be able to grow faster.
what i have realized though, is that even if your target was growing by an inch, you keep increasing the target as you grow because you realize that your height destiny is in your hands yet you feel you want to walk on top of every one….how nice it feels!
PS: Some one just emailed me this success with the cycling routine;
“Dennis, i have a question about your cycling leg lengthening method: after putting your technique into application, i miraculously gain 1.5 cm within a week with abundant protein supplement and a 2-hour routine.(i always measure my height in morning)However, the efficiency slowed down afterward. Do you have any idea about this?( I have been raising the seat saddle constantly.) hope you can answer me.”
