Actually aerobics make you taller indirectly. When you put weight on your bones they will grow with proper diet. Keep up the good work

I posted this as a comment to Eric's answer which is pretty much on the point but to add a bit more specifically to answer your points. A warm up and some dynamic stretches to begin with. You can static stretch at the end of the work out. From a sports injury perspective a professional sports physio would get you to warm up for 5 minutes then dynamically ...

Flexibility is training just like any other training. There is no gene for flexibility. And, just like any other training, it will follow the same sort of timeline as any other exercise regimen. Nobody can tell you with any certainty how you will respond to stretching, unfortunately. If you want to increase your flexibility, you need to be working all the ...

Despite some answers naysaying stretching, it depends on what physicals activities you are going to do and -- what I read -- was consistency. The people who had fewest injuries were those who either regularly stretched before their workout -- OR -- regularly didn't stretch. Those that stretched inconsistently were the most like to achieve the "injured ...

First off, ask your trainer how many athletes he or she has trained that have won national, regional, or international titles. Personally, my belief is that unless you have trained someone that's made the Olympic team (or around there), you should probably put your ego in check and emulate what the Olympic trainers are doing. Training isn't an art project ...

Recent research indicates that stretching might be more of a pre-workout magical ritual than an actually useful functional component. It was taught as the "correct" way for decades and most people never questioned it (then again, so was "a low fat diet makes you skinny"), so you're likely to still run into it with PE teachers and fitness trainers, i.e. ...

Cardio before lifting worries me though, as its likely that you will tire out many of your weakest muscles (much of your abdominals for example) before you even start lifting, causing ...

It sounds like you are doing everything that can be done to help your condition. The best I can do is to give you ideas for inspiration. 1) Get the right chair. Since you are sitting down all the time, there might be some special chairs that can help sit in a better position. 2) Change setting position every so often. Maybe once every 30 to 60 minutes 3) ...

I do not think there exists any single set of simple exercises or advices, which can ease your situation. You have too many and too complicated difficulties. On the other hand, I feel sure you will benefit much from appropriate training. One of my supervisors has confirmed this story: https://vimeo.com/41271653 I hope, you will get ...

I danced for a long time and have a BA in it and was part of a modern dance company. I would look at really some general yoga stretching to begin with, this is something that we always did. A big key is to make sure you get the blood moving first to avoid injury. A simple way is to just make the class do jumping jacks, but that is boring. Since its ...
