I heard yoga and swimming can help you get taller... is this true? I'm 18, and want to grow just a few more inches...

yoga and swimming are two factors that will help something that generally helps people grow taller: health

health is what you need to grow taller during your prime growth spurts in puberty, im on the same boat as you man, im stuck at 5'7, my growth spurt was over years ago, now whatever i do, itll just get me a stronger guy... i know for a fact that i wont grow any taller and ive learned to accept it

however, once you finish your growth spurt, one benefit is that mass does come on, and you tend to get bigger

Think it might be a little late for you. Growth spurts usually happen during puberty and before you're 18.

Fo real, the stretching thing works. I stretched (and when I mean stretching, I mean real stretching) for about 30 minutes every morning and night every day (for 3 mths) back when I was 16 years old. I grew about 1.5 inches during that time. I'm positive it was because of stretching because I didn't grow a single CM for an entire year before I started strecthing. So give it a shot smokeyfacesmokeyface

Nah, brah.

I swam for 8 years, and I only grew so much. I'm only 5'7 - 5'8. Fuck Asian genes.

Just learn to live with it. In the meantime, just do some yoga and stretch a lot.

Stretching. Especially stretching after exercising. Yoga. Martial arts. The 1.5 years I did tae kwon do were the 1.5 years I grew a shit ton. Anecdotal evidence.

I hope I haven't stopped growing. I want to get to at least 5'9. Fuck Asian genes.

stretches is best opinion

Yes that's true!! There are many grow taller exercises like swimming, cycling and stretching. Grow taller stretching exercises can lead to dramatic height increase when performed correctly.
Stretching is one of the best grow taller exercises around. This is because stretching causes the body to produce human growth hormones called EIGs (exercise induced growth hormones). EIGs result from catecholamines, acid-base balance, nitric oxide, and lactate. Nitric oxide and lactate especially increase height. Human growth hormones harden cartilage, strengthen bones and make you grow taller.

Your maximum height potential is pretty much pre-determined and there's nothing you can do about it. However to better the chances of reaching it, just do what everyone's already said. Basically eat right, sleep, stretch maybe, etc

It's like someone's intelligence. Everyone has a cap and you can't really raise it any further. That's why we don't have Einsteins rolling around everywhere just because they study all day.

edit: I'm pretty sure you can go to the doctor and get some hormone shit that will help you grow if your growth plates are still open. But I doubt they would prescribe you it at 5'7.
