Actually the older you get after a certain age, many people shrink. The spine starts compressing. One of many good reasons to stretch and exercise.

stunting your growth by going to the gym is highly unlikely i think, i think this theory is more targeted at those hardcore bodybuilder types. if anything going to the gym at your age is a great idea because your body is growing and its probably easier to gain muscle.

There are probably several medical factors that could stunt growth. Low thyroid function during your growing years can stunt growth. Since thyroid is a common problem, you might want to start there. Consult your doctor.

My brother started working out at the age of 15. At that time he was about 5'8, 3 years later he is 6'0. He goes every day and does some really intense weight lifting and he is growing. But what I noticed is that even though he has been working out more then me, its much easier for me to gain muscle and develop it. For example my arms and back are much larger then his, and I been working out only for a year.

if it really concerns you stay away from perscription amphetamines that they give for concentration

Ritalin, concerta, adderal, many others... they give tons and tons of this crap to kids even tho they say it has the capability to stunt puberty....

I took a few of these for ADD, tho honestly I am about 6'4


I know this is truth.
