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.
Using weights promotes growth.
That;s an interesting question. I am happy you asked this. I am a major science wiz. I am 15 years old. I recently had a theory that weight lifting could improve growth if done properly and safely. I started weight lifting when I was 14 years old. One thing to make sure of is to lift weights your body can handle and weights that are not too light or way too heavy for you. I was lifting some heavy weights. Though I still grew an inch TALLER! I was 5'8 and grew to another inch over the summer. I am now 5'9. My shoulders got wider and stronger. My chest also got bigger and harder as a result of weight lifting. But doing weight lifting wrong can damage your growth plate and stunt your growth in the process. It won't stop but it will slow down as a result of damage. So if your doing it or want too do it. Then I suggest lifting weights good for you. Make sure you have an adult who has weight lifted before has more than enough experience with weights. Weight lifting is very good because our muscles need that kind of stress factor in order to improve in performance wise.
Lifting weights is an exercise
Weight training can help your muscles grow bigger and stronger, but it won't necessarily help you grow taller.
yes after week or so.
Lifting up weights.
Because lifting weights requires actual weights it puts resistance on the muscles to make them stronger bigger and more durable unlike stretching, these two are completely different from each other.
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 :)
I have never herd of that, im 16 and i have been lifting weights for 2 yrs and it hasn't made me short I have never herd of that, im 16 and i have been lifting weights for 2 yrs and it hasn't made me short
Lifting weights will make your muscles contrast and burn fat from your body while strengthening the muscles at the same time. It will help you gain muscle.
Are you asking "Will lifting weights one hour per year result in increased muscle mass?" If so the answer is NO!
No it makes you have more muscels tending to make you weigh more.
Exactly as you said: by lifting weights. Regardless of what type of weight-lifting program you are following, lifting weights will (and should; if not, increase the weight/reps) will increase muscle size and ultimately lead to a heavier weight.
This answer depends on your diet. If you continue to consume the same amount of calories after you quit lifting, then yes you may get fat. Lifting weights burns calories and muscles need these calories to build more muscle. If you quit lifting weights, your body no longer needs as many calories. Also, your metabolism will slow after you quit lifting weights. Now, if you quit lifting weights and also cut calories, you will not get fat.
it just means lifting weights that is not on a machine like using a curl bar
it's the feeling you get after lifting weights where everything feels lighter and werid. not only after lifting weights but also putting leg weights on etc.
No, the worst thing that'll happen is it will stunt your growth.
yes must of the time yes must of the time
When you are pushing up, or the second half of lifting the weights like if your benching, then you breath out when you are pushing up
Lifting weights = subject builds muscles = predicate
