No it does not. That is a myth. Correctly performed weight training will not stunt your growth. However, that does not mean that it is advisable before the age of about 16. In addition, young people should be supervised to minimize the risk of injury.

How does lifting weights stunt your growth?

There is no evidence that weight lifting stunts growth. In fact, bones can become stronger from the exercise. Science has proved that weight training will not stunt your growth even if you start at as young as 10 years old. The real danger is if your not supervised and have bad form injuries may occur.


Can a 15-year-old boy do practice in the gym or will it stop growth?

Lifting weights and doing cardio will never stop your growth it will actually help it. The hormone (GH) or Growth Hormone is produced from lifting weights because you are triggering the pituitary gland to produce the hormone from the exercise. Same goes with cardio. working out in the gym or running will not stunt your growth.

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.


Can weight lifting stunt your growth if you 15 years old?

No, it does not stunt growth. The ends of the bone are still growing when young, and some people thought that if the bone was broken your growth would be stunted, but this is undocumented. Lifting is very beneficial at all ages.
