Hi I am 14 yrs old now and I am

Patient: Hi I am 14 yrs old now and I am wondering if the whole lifting heavy weights will stunt your growthIs 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?

 

 

Doctor: Hi.Thanks for your query.Lifting heavy weights has nothing to do with stunting of the growth.In fact the exerc ises should also be well balanced and under the guidance of a trainer. And I am sure you will get one.
