    How is 5"8 short? I'm a girl, I'm 5"8 and I play basketball!

    Edit: Hiking, canoeing, kayaking, netball, hockey? You can do pretty much any sport!! :confused:

    Boxing; I assume height makes literally no difference due to the weight categories

    Bodybuilding. If you build up your leg muscles (quads and hamstrings) enough, they will get so big that the skin cannot hold all that muscle, which should help you put on an inch or two of height. This is all done outside the bone.

    U aware?

    Recreational sports? Anything you like mate. You'll never be a world-class rower or volleyball player, but that's not your goal is it?

    Two questions:

    (1) Have you been doing archery for a long time? If so have you noticed any developmental imbalances between your right and left side in your arms, shoulders and or upper back?
    (2) How many (dead hang) pull-ups can you do?

    Martial arts are generally very good for small people. Try Jiu Jitsu or Judo.

    (1) 4 years on and off. And my right side is definitely stronger but not by much I would reckon. I'm a bit out of practice as last year was more dissertation focused than sports focused. When I'm at my peak I'm pulling 32lb, but going back to that after time off is hell.
    (2) lol. I can barely do a (girly) push up never mind a pull up.
