Rob, what is the difference between standing tall and busting a gut?I found them quite similar.
Editor Rob
It might vary between individuals, but really breathing in and busting a gut could add 2-6mm range.

@ don - That’s very interesting, they could be height twins!

I doubt that elevator shoes made for any type of sport even exist. I've seen elevator shoes for running but that's about it.

Rob, I wondered if it was possible to find soccer elevator shoes ? Does such shoes exist with a slight lift of only 1-2 cm ? Or you think it will change the gravity center too much ...
Editor Rob
I doubt any player is wearing them, but I know for a fact some Golfers (not so much pros) have had elevator golf shoes made.

Rob, I don’t think I gain any height from “busting a gut”. I measure pretty much the same as I do when standing tall, but I’ll have to check again. Is it normal to not even gain 1 mm from your “standing tall” pose?
Editor Rob
Many can gain a few mm's by breathing in.

Rob, what's your stance on whether a 'busting a gut' height is one's true height that they can claim? Because it's not implausible that someone who measures 170.2 cms early in the day would be around 5'6.75 by night time.
Editor Rob
It's the maximum we can achieve whilst not going up on tip-toes.

My own preference is that you should stand tall enough that you can maintain that posture, it might not be quite busting a gut, the difference might be couple of mm or even with some people up to 1cm for busting a gut.

Mascherano and Jordi Alba

Could Mascherano be like Rob Paul?
Editor Rob
I wouldn't class Mascherano as a 174 guy, but somewhere in 173 range...he may well be similar to me in height.

It's not your true height because you're standing in a forced unnatural posture.

Isn't "busting a gut" simply standing as tall as possible? And therefore one's true height?

Something is off here. I pinned Jordi Alba at 169-170 range more often. Messi edges him out in this picture. Footwear are quite similar. I guess Messi has normal dress shoes which give 2.5cm(full inch).
To be honest I still don't believe Messi is taller than Jordi Alba. He also seems taller than Iniesta who might lose a bit of height due to posture.

I think it's possible the Barcelona Stadiometer is installed incorrectly, I'm sure this guy would measure 5'6.5 at best, looks no taller than Messi.

are you making fun of short people with that thumbnail rob?
Editor Rob
I put a thumbnail with Yerry Mina like that too, he's 6ft I'm not sure what you mean.

@Rob I remember your video of busting a gut

it was like 6 mm Jenny and 7 mm you, but it looked like a extreme bust a gut

for example Coutinho did a soft bust a gut and it added 3 mm

Piqué looked extreme bust a gut too
Editor Rob
Yeah, Pique really went for it...a soft one might be 2-3mm, an extreme one could give 5-7mm.

Rob, how much would you say busting a guy adds?
Editor Rob
Might be anywhere from a few mm to 1cm in some people's cases...but I'd say 3-5mm was a common range.

I asked my sister to do it and she got 5mm and she's much fitter than me.
