3 Major Elements for Growth (Exercise)

Relationship between height and exercise

Exercise is essential for the growth of stature.
Modern children are getting less time for exercising year by year.
There are various causes, such as study at a school, dissemination of video games, decrease of playground, and so on. Yet, we would like to have children to know how much fun to move a lot and play.
In addition, we, adults, need to recognize more deeply how much important it is that children exercise.
Now, we will consider about influences, which exercise has on children’s growth. Here, we will look at separately bone, muscle, and internal organs.

Influences, which exercise will give on bones

Irritation to epiphysis glands
When bones grow, bones extend from “epiphysis glands” at the tip of each bone. Epiphysis glands will run out as an adult, at the same time, growth will stop. When extending a large stature, this epiphysis glands are actively making bones.
For example, when light stimulus is applied by running, jumping rope, and moving, epiphysis glands begin working actively and encourage growth.

Impacts of exercise on muscles

Train “postural muscles”
When you exercise while firmly using the body, you use the parts close to the core body, such as spine, shoulder blades, and pelvis. These core parts, except hands and feet, are called “trunk.”
Muscle strength of the trunk is also the muscle strength to maintain a good posture. In other words, the trunk is tempered by exercise, then you can first to maintain a good posture.

Impacts of exercise on internal organs and secretion systems

Promotion of Appetite
When you exercise, you use lots of energy. Thus, appetite will increase. Since children will gain necessary nutrition for growth if you eat good foods a lot, children who exercise well and eat a lot are easier to grow.

Promote secretion of growth hormone
By using muscles, it can promote secretion of growth hormone. Growth hormone instructs to extend bones by working on epiphysis glands. When growth hormone is secreted a lot, it makes bones a lot. Thus, if children exercise, it can promote the growth.

Improvement of sleep
If you exercise a lot, you can get a good sleep quality in order to revitalize tired body. And during the better sleep, growth hormone is secreted a lot. Thus, you can make the most important time for height extension.
