Developer Pierre Pozzuto says his classes induce a human growth hormone through sprint exercises, which “cause micro fractures in the bones that repair in a week, encouraging them to strengthen, remould and grow”.
Pozzuto says he grew two inches in a few months.
Inversion exercises, such as hanging by the feet, are also said to increase height “by inducing spinal decompression”.
