Everyday I get the question “Will lifting weights stunt my growth?” and the answer is NO! I am going to quickly show you the DATA and tell you my own story about about how I started lifting at age 15.
First off here is what the ” AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS” has to say about kids lifting weights as it relates to stunting one’s growth.
“strength training programs do not seem to adversely affect linear growth and do not seem to have any long-term detrimental effect on cardiovascular health”
You can read the whole study HERE
Here is my own story. I stared lifting weights when I was around 15 because I was sick of getting beat up by bigger kids…. And I wanted to get more girls. Here is a pic of me around that age.
In that Pic I am about 140 pounds at 5 foot 7. It took me about 4 years for me to get to 190 pounds (it ONLY took that long because I had NO IDEA what I was doing!!!!!) During that time I also grew to 6’2 !!! I am one of the tallest people in my family, so lifting weights did not stunt my growth at all!
Now The MOST important thing is that young people (or ANYONE) know what they are doing when working out. I wasted YEARS in the as a kid f-cking around in the gym “Pretending” to workout, not eating right, and wasting tons of money on crap supplements! It took YEARS of trial and error, studying, reading,and taking classes and getting certifications for me to really understand what works and what dose not. Only then was I able to REALLY get in to the shape I wanted to be in and train other people to do the same!
That is the main reason I write this blog. I had to learn all this info on my own! I don’t want you all to have to accomplish your goals on your own. I want you all to get in the best shape you can in the fastest amount of time!
