MYTH in India: Weightlifting stops growth
Advertisement
#1
There is a BIG time myth amongst Indian people that if someone under the age of 18 will weightlift, their height will stop growing and their growth will be paused.

This is a MYTH, its FALSE, there is no truth or substance to it. There are people that have been weightlifting since they were 12 years old and they are 6'4" today.

Height growth is all in your genetics, if you lift or you don't lift, if you exercise or you don't exercise, nothing is going to effect your height (except improper nutrition of course)

So people, don't fall to this myth, and enjoy bodybuilding! :oooh no:
