Couldn't find what you looking for?


I am a 13 year old boy and i want to know if weight lifting will affect my growth. I started working out about 3 months ago and the reason being is football. I worked out 3 times a week for 3 months. Does this affect anything?

Hey Ryan weightlifting doesn't usually affect growth as long as you use proper form and lift safely. Also I would not lift extreamly heavy weights. If you are lifting just to build muscle mass for foot ball and are not overly obsessive  about it and life every day or several times per day. You should be fine. The biggest thing is to lift properly and know how to  do the different types of lifts correctlynsobyoubdo not hurt youreelf
