Best Answer

Heavy lifting will not stunt your growth. Your growth depends mainly upon eating a good diet. Smoking cigarettes is known to stunt the growth of a child, mainly because it reduces appetite and so leads to an inadequate diet.

Does lifting weights for half an hour a day stunt growth in height?

No. It's an urban legend that weight lifting stunts ones' growth. Dumbells wil certainly not do anything to affect your growth.

Barring an injury, however, you can do whatever lifting you like and not hurt your growth.
