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.

  • 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

  • @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. Oct 10, 2017 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 :)

  • @user2167582 - What makes you think a lower center of gravity is a limiting factor in sprinting and jumping?
