this may sound really stupid but...

please bare with me, im a man in desperation...

basically, are there any tips to still stimulate growth in a male? i am 21 years old and stand at 5'7 - 5'8...i am desperate to grow an extra inch or two...

most of the things i do require being an adequate height and it seems that i am at most, average height for a male...i ride motorcycles and usually have trouble on bigger bikes...most of the women i am interested in are an inch shorter or sometimes as tall i believe that reach is very important in the event that i start training for kickboxing (which i do plan on very soon) or even something as simple as self defense...

i realize its genetics and i have two brothers that are my height, but one thats 5'10 so i figured there would still be a chance...i am asian american so off the bat, the odds are against me

is there anything possible to still stimulate growth at such a late age?

Hey man im 5'6'' and I can still kick some ass. Why you worried about your height man they have weight classes. I'm 1/4 japanese and the rest of me is mixed liked german irish and some other shit. So that's why I'm short. Do yourself a favor and go to YouTube.com and DailyMotion.com and search for "Kid Yamamoto" and "Iron Mike Zambidis" then come talk to us about your height.

Hey man I can relate to you. I am 5'7 and 21 too. I dont think we will get any taller but dont let your height get u down. I use to feel the same way. Size doesnt matter in a fight and i dont care what anyone says. Its how hard u train and u have to be confident. Sean sherk is only 5'6-5'7 and he is a beast. So dont let it get u down. for the shorties

Most growth harmones are for putting on muscle or weight, I'm not sure if you can grow taller by taking growth harmones. Just train your ass of and height won't be a problem.
