Couldn't find what you looking for?


I am 15 weight lift and run everyday and have been since i was 11 and i have a weird feeling its slowing my growth what should i do? And is this bad?


Hi Joe,

Weight lifting can be a healthy activity IF you use proper technique and don't try to lift excessively heavy loads repetitively.  Running is a fine sport and very good for you too.

Remember with both, take a break now and then.  Your muscles need time to heal and recover.

It's unlikely either is slowing your growth.  You should have had a growth spurt by now or be in the middle of one.  After that your growth will slow until you reach your final height.

Hope it helps.
