When I was 13 I started pre-freshman football lifting. We max out every 6 weeks. At 13 I was 5ft and I have been lifting weights since and am 5ft 3 at 14 years old. I know it isn't a huge gain but my parents aren't that tall. In fact, genetics are what make you short. Not coffee or lifting weights most of those are myths. I squat 265 yet still grow even though people say squatting stunts growth. Your best bet is to get your forms down before you try to max out or do heavy weight. Benching is shoulders and will not affect your growth. It is healthy to lift weights but since your 12 I would focus on form and repetition before maxing. You should feel stiff or sore after you start lifting which means you worked your body more than it is used too. Use spotters when using free weights!
