as a problem with many asian men, our height is usually shorter than of a white women. my question is, does exercising a lot during your growth spurt yield a greater growth, or is this a myth?

i'm currently 18 and 5'8".

According to Jose Canseco, he grew from 5'10" at age 18 to 6'4" by age 20. He had a little help though.

You're short get over it, find smaller chicks or girls that like small Asian guys.

If the exercising you are talking about is lifting free weights, then it will not increase your bone length (only way I could think to say it). What it does is increase bone density.

haha

hehe, i'm 5' 10" and I think i'm too short. But its not a problem though, most people when they see me think I'm at least 6' 1". I am a fairly big buy, and not big as in obese too.

Bruce Lee (one of the most bad ass men to have ever existed) was 5"7', so rest assured you can still be awesome. You probably aren't and are never going to be, just telling you your height won't necessarily hold you back.

I find that the ones born in North America are way taller than the immigrants.

When my dad was in Nam, he said the white guys were the first to die because even when they crouched, because they were so tall, they were still picked off by the VC and NVA.

I was mostly done growing by the age of 17 or 18...from then til I was 21, I maybe grew another .5-.75", so nothing remarkable. I'm somewhere between 5'10" and 5'11" I think...haven't measured my height in a while.

See, there's yer problem! I only eat brown rice. Soak it 20 hours in the fridge before cooking it (this begins the sprouting process and releases nutrients, it also makes it faster to cook).

i've never really liked eating rice in general. i just eat whatever is cooked for dinner, which happens to be rice. :(
