Does lifting weights help to make you taller?

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.

What is the ideal amount of weight lifting for a 14 year old boy?

I advice to only have an exercise, walking, biking and running to your 14 year old boy. It is because it is not advisable to do weight lifting at an early age. 21 year old can do, but at 14? I don't think so... you're boy will not get taller if you ask him to continue weight lifting at that age. I think he can still wait, he can still enjoy, biking, running, and walking.

Are you supposed to feel sore after weight lifting?

Usually yes. In the process of weight lifting, you are actually tearing/breaking down muscle tissue. The soreness you feel is related to how much tissue was broken down during your weight lifting session. This soreness can last for a day or two, or as long as a week. It all depends how much you lifted, and how intense your workout was. The old weight lifting saying goes " no pain, no gain", which is referring to the pain you feel after your workout.
