Patient :Hi I am 14 yrs old now and I am wondering if the whole lifting heavy weights will stunt your growth
Is this a myth or does it really stunt my growth?
I have be lifting a 10 lb dumbbell I am not sure if it will effect my growth or not?
Thanks for your query.
Lifting heavy weights has nothing to do with stunting of the growth.
In fact the exercises should also be well balanced and under the guidance of a trainer. And I am sure you will get one.
