you aren't going to get any taller.... probably

Ask your doctor to do x-rays to see if your bone plates are fused. But even if they aren't, it will be up to genetics.

The bones fused in the wrist thing is crap, at least when trying to predict height. Doctor said I would be 5'7".

I'm 6'1".

It's genetics though. Sorry dude.

Practice correct posture thats about it.

You cant do anything to change your genetics. So you cant do anything to get taller. Dont worry i know people who grew into their 20s.


Also its not worth getting xrays to see if your going to get any taller, thats just stupid.

Yeah it all comes down to genetics, but that doesnt mean your going to be the same size as your mom/dad. I'm 6' even and 205lbs and my dads only 5'9 and 140.

hormones make you taller. primarily HGH, but others like test actually help.

Now, before you run off and start trying to find HGH, hold on. There are a lot of ways to assist HGH naturally.
First off, physical stress helps. So, if you are lifting, you are already helping your cause. Don't forget those heavy compound lifts.
You may want to toss in some rigorous cardio atleast once a week. Also, this may sound odd, but doing a 24hour fast (drink water though) once every couple of weeks may also give you a natural jolt of HGH.

Now is the time too. You are still plenty young enough that your growth plates have not closed.

what? He said he was 17.

I was slightly less than 6'0" when I graduated HighSchool. When I was 22 years old I was over 6'-2" tall
