Hallo,nnMy name is Rafi, age 16 and about 165cm tall, can using dumbbells with only 2kg slow my height? I also balance it with cardio, running, swimming, bodyweight exercises, such as pull ups, push ups, sit ups.nnterms l

1 Answer:

Good evening Rafi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. So far, exercise using barbells or strength training is often associated with the possibility of less than optimal height growth, but this is not true. There is not enough evidence through research that people who exercise using weights have a shorter average height than those who do not use weights. In addition, even if it does have an effect, a load of only 2 kg should not make a person short.


But if you want to maximize your height, weight training and bodyweight exercises are not the way to go. Sports that will stimulate height, for example, are swimming, jumping rope, cycling, jogging, treadmill and basketball because these sports require more blood flow to the leg area and this makes the long bones in the legs more nutritious for height growth. Equipped with an adequate night's sleep, eating nutritious foods rich in vitamin D and protein and avoiding stress, you will further optimize your height potential. So, hopefully useful.
