Muscle building or body building exercises, preferably done at the age of over 18 years. Age under 18 years is the age of growth, if training or muscle building exercises done at an early age or under 18 years of age will inhibit growth and development, and affect posture, such as height. When doing weight sports and it affects height, it affects the gravitational force which will have an effect on the bones, so that the body will experience shortening or short stature.
Whey protein is milk or a muscle building supplement, whey protein is not recommended for adolescents, because protein supplements are not needed by teenagers, because what they need is to eat foods with balanced nutrition, and protein supplements can reduce endurance.
