Re: Can Exercise stunt growth?
I've heard some discussion on this issue by so called "experts". What they've said is that prior to puberty the bones in the body are soft or softer than when a person reaches puberty. So it's said that being on a heavy duty weight lifting routine pre puberty can possibly stunt growth but we're talking heavy duty powerlifting/bodybuilding type stuff and not resistance training, running, sports and the like. So according to experts there is a risk of stunting growth but only with really intense high level weight lifting prior to puberty. But as for all the other exercises it's definately a good thing for young kids.
Keep Pumping...see what happens
