    Ive grown almost 1 1/4 inches since I grad HS in 2006. not super uncommon for some males to continue growing till early to mid 20's, even at a very slow rate.

    I am sure your gain has little to do with lifting.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    Perhaps better posture from correct lifting. Which would mean the weights did not help you grow taller but helped you get the most out of what you already had

    Exclamation

    Believe it or not, your story is anatomically possible...

    Research has found that the high intensity work out can improve the levels of Human Growth Hormone in your blood. Not to mention that the #1 proven way to grow taller naturally is stretching and many work outs stretch your body as well. Being at an age where you are still growing in the first place, you are especially susceptible to this happening.

    So putting the working out w/ the stretching motions and your age together, I'd say you could even have a little more to come in the future~!
