No lifting weights will not affect your height growth
because lifting can cause growth to stop in your bone structure
People do not stop growing by lifting weights. It was believed that weight lifting damaged the growth plates and stunted growth. It CAN happen, but only with very heavy weights, such as sets of 3-5 reps. They say no one should do HEAVY weights until they are 18, or fully grown.
No it promotes growth, unless your young an your body is not fully developed then you could cause damage.
no, in fact just the opposite. i am a bodybuilder who is 6 and a half feet tall.
There is no scientific evidence that lifting weights can reduce your growth rate.
Lifting weights and doing cardio will never stop your growth it will actually help it. The hormone (GH) or Growth Hormone is produced from lifting weights because you are triggering the pituitary gland to produce the hormone from the exercise. Same goes with cardio. working out in the gym or running will not stunt your growth.
no. it in fact encourages growth. i started training when i was 16 and actually got taller as a result. even when i was 11 i lifted weights sometimes and i was still the tallest kid in my grade. still am :)
Shoot 150 jumpshots a day and also stop lifting weights.
Because teenagers are still growing and lifting weights can stop their growth. If you start bodybuilding, then be careful and consult a doctor when you feel something is not right. Don't hurt yourself.
It may not stunt your growth, however, you have to really careful that you don't tear ligaments or tendons. You may want to ask your coach or trainer the correct way of lifting weights.
