Welcome to healthcare magic forum
Exercise helps in incrasing height, some activities like swimming , badminton, tennis etc. Also Surya namaskar helps a lot too. Muscle building will not make you taller, but will help u become fit and look robust.
A diet rich in calcium, protiens is also needed here. Take more of dairy products, eggs, chicken, lots of vegetables & fruits
