what sport or workout would elevate your center of mass/gravity? bigger arms, tighter calves. would sprinting be a good exercise for this?

    Can you be more descriptive on what "raising your centre of gravity" means? Beyond gaining muscle mass in your upper body and not your lower I'm unsure how else you expect to move your centre of mass upwards. – John Oct 10 '17 at 7:16
  • Out of curiosity, why would you want to move your center of gravity upwards? As a rather tall guy, I can't think of a situation where having a lower center of gravity would be a bad thing – Dark Hippo Oct 10 '17 at 7:39
  • @DarkHippo as a short guy who judoed, now trying to get good at basketball, i find having a lower center of gravity harder to sprint and jump. But yes, I do know in combat/wrestling sport this is an advantage. – user2167582 Oct 10 '17 at 14:05
  • Ah, fair point, that's not something I'd considered. My point of view does mainly come from combat sports as well as rollerskating and attempts at surfing :) – Dark Hippo Oct 10 '17 at 14:25
  • @user2167582 - What makes you think a lower center of gravity is a limiting factor in sprinting and jumping? – JohnP Oct 10 '17 at 21:18
