Post How long do boys grow for?

At what age do boys stop getting taller? And at what age do boys stop filling out?

This varies for each of us. Puberty officially lasts until the age of 21 but most of us are done growing and developing by our late teens.

I was told by a Doctor that men can continue growing taller until the age of 25. I agree with Lance myself. But I thought you might like to know any way.

Yeah you can continue growing until the mid-20s but most people have stopped by about 18-21, or at least have done over 95% of any growing their gonna do

I shot up another two inches when I was about 21, so it does happen. But I think it's rare. I'm also one of the tallest people in my family but I'm not sure that has anything to do with the growth spurt.

As everyone has said, it's different for everyone. As for me, I stopped growing taller at around 18, but kept filling out throughout my 20's. Actually, I'm almost 30 now and still filling out now that I'm doing weight lifting I mean I'm heavier and bigger than I ever was before, and it's not fat!
