Impressive growth. I hope I get an inch or two more. My father grew at 21 though, so I might as well then. Did you do anything special when you grew? Increase in exercise...etc?
No at all... growing that fast was painful. At the time, i was a serious tennis player and training about 20 hours a week. I had to stop for over 2 months because the pain was too much in my lower back. At first, I thought i pulled a muscle because I had small marks on my lower back. I found out only recently from a physician that because I grew so quickly I suffered from a small scoliosis (spine is not perfectly straight) and developed small stretch marks on my lower pack.
At the end of the day, I am very happy that I am now considered "tall" and got the small stretch marks removed by a plastic surgeon and I can also play sports without feeling any pain.
