    Exclamation Height Potential?


    Hey guys,

    Long time no post.

    I just measured myself for the first time in about 6 months and discovered I'd grown half an inch (I'm now 6'3.5" when I stand perfectly straight). I just turned 21 last week. Is it reasonable to believe I might hit 6'4? My Dad is 6'5.5 and my mom is 5'9.

    Personal anecdotes about growing after 21 welcome .

    I believe that the statistics are average of your parents plus two inches. That would put you right about where you are. Could always be a statistical anomaly...

    my dad is 6.1-6.2

    my mom 5.3-5.4

    I am 6.2 shoes off standing strait up so that is not always the case.

    I was over six foot by the time I was 13-14. might have even been 6.2 I do not know

    my best answer just wait and see
