Does exercise stop you from growing?

Exercise does not stop you growing. Running,cycling, swimming etc are all healthy examples of exercise and don't stunt your growth. Lifting excessively heavy weights at a young age (12-14ish) however, can stunt your growth and effect the development of your arm muscles and bones. If you plan on lifting weights at an early age you should ask your trainer/coach for advice and stick with smaller weights. To be honest, I would just recommend push-ups, pull-ups etc.

Does weight lifting affect the height?

Nope. A lot of people would say that lifting stunts growth, but nothing about lifting weights could stop growth and development. If anything, lifting at a young age releases growth hormones and helps growth. Some might think that squats, for example, would stunt growth because of the pressure of the weight down on your back. But the time you spend with weights actually significantly compressing your spine in the gym couldn't and shouldn't be more than 2 minutes, which, if you squat twice, maybe three times a week (a lot) isn't nearly enough to matter. The only thing that could set back growth would be a back injury. So do have to be careful. Bad form with heavy weights could result in injury, and teens are probably more likely to do something stupid... So if you start lifting in your early teens, and have good form, you should have no problems at all.

I suffer no adverse effects from it.


Does weight lifting stop your growth?
