Is endurance exercise better for mental cognition than strength exercise?

Best=what you'll do!: Yes, endurance/other activity that raises hr is better than simply lifting weights, eg. But the regimen need not be overly strenuous.

Endurance would be training for long periods of time usually at a reduced rate. This would be a distance runner. Usually it is best to cross train, or train for both as in doing so you can develop both types of muscle fibers, fast twitch (strength) and slow twitch (endurance). ...Read more

I'm kalyan 21yrs by this nov12.I'm just 5'7.I want to increase "will kicking, stretching exercises, inversion exercise, hanging, jumping increase my heigh?

Very rarely people do grow a bit in height after 21, but over 99% of the time one has stopped growing by age 21 & i know of nothing that will change that.While not as tall as average (average height in the us for caucasians is about 5'10", but 5'7" for hispanics) you are not unusually short. Given this is unlikely to change, it is wise to accept it. ...Read more

Does height really increase after 20 only through yoga and stretching exercise?

Does height really increase after 20 only through yoga and stretching exercise?

No, but: Height is how you carry yourself, proper posture, wearing the right clothes for your body habitus. Stand straight, hold your head square, don't slump, look confident, shoulders back, head a bit back (almost like trying to make a double chin): you'll look taller, tougher, send a message to that oncoming intruder that says 'don't mess with me'. Yes, stretch away. Perception is everything. ...Read more
