Misconception of height increase
A lot of people are under the assumption that weightlifting is hazardous to a teenager’s growth. It is a common misconception that weightlifting makes you short or stunts his normal growth. There is no reason why an adolescent’s height is shortened by any kind of game or sport and this includes weightlifting and body building. As a matter of fact, reverse is true. Practically all sport activity helps growth beneficially by building strong bones and good tone of muscles. Our main advice to teenagers starting a weightlifting or weight training program is – do not do it on your own from the start. Have a good coach start you off and check your progress from time to time.
