    Yes its true. The best leg exercise stops growth. Thats why lebron did it to get his vertical up, but it cost him about 7 inches. Be careful!

    If started early enough yes weightlifting can stunt your growth. I started in 7th grade and im 6'2-6'3". I was apparently supposed to be 6'4"-6'6" based on the growth charts. Could squatting stunted my growth? Sure (but probably not). But a prime example of stunted growth would be wrestlers. Weightlifting+Cutting ridiculous amounts of weight=stunted growth

    It has absolutely nothing to do with weightlifting, unless you experienced an injury to the bone at an early age. Nutrition is a great factor in height as well as hormone levels.. higher levels of estrogen can cause growth plates to fuse early.

    Yes, squats stunt growth and deadlifts make your arms longer. No problem, I'll just do pull ups or hang on the bar, that will make me taller.

    Squats made me grow, not taller but bigger. For me squats have always been the most anabolic exercise. For others deads, but my back stopped me doing stiff legged deads past 335 x 3.

    Squats I hit 395 before I wrecked my back. I could have gone heavier but once that disc is gone forget about it.
