"I'm in my teens and I want to start weight lifting. But someone recently told me that weightlifting can stunt my growth. Is this true?"

Have you ever wondered...
Does Lifting Weights Stunt Your Growth?

Why Are Bodybuilders Short?

Will Lifting Weights Make You Shorter?

Despite all the information available today that dispels the myth that working out stunts your growth. I still get dozens of questions every single week from teenagers who are afraid to lift weights because they think they'll be doomed to be short for the rest of their life.

The bottom line is that weight training has NO impact on your height. You are going to grow to be a certain height based on your genetics, not based on what exercises you do or don't do.

Parents will put their kids in baseball, karate, soccer, hockey, football, etc. without a care in the world. But they are afraid to let them touch a weight in the gym. Do you realize that kids are much more likely to get injured playing a team sport then they ever are by following a supervised weight training program.

Weight training actually ranks as one of the safest sporting activities that you can perform. There is a lower risk of injury from weight training then any other sport.

So if you are a teenager reading this and you are afraid to workout, or if you are a parent who is reading this and is afraid to let your child exercise, don't be. Do your research and learn the facts.

The health benefits of following a structured weight training program can mean the difference between living a healthy active lifestyle. Or one that's riddled with sickness and disease. Start your kids off on the right track with healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
