    I am about 5 foot 5 and I really want to be taller but I know I can only control so much, so I want to control what I know i can.

    At the same time, I want to get stronger than what I am right now, so I want to start benching and stuff like that. I have heard that if you work out a lot you wont grow in those areas. So is there a limit to how much I should work out so that I am not stunting any growth? Or is that really only an issue for the people who work out like mad...I would probably lift every other day or so for a while.

    Thanks

    I dont know how much truth there is to that, and I've only heard that you wont develop correctly if you start serious resistance training before puberty.

    As far as optimizing height and gaining muscle. Make sure you eat a balanced diet but throw in some extra protein and minerals.

    it's all a myth. I know tons of guys who have been working out hardcore since they were young and most of them ended up around the same height as me.

    Check out the fitness and nutrition forum and read the stickies, they have tons of information to get you started.

    i read in some article a while ago that depending on how old you are, it's very important for you to go to bed early (8-10PM) in order to achieve your maximum potential height. it has to do with timing your sleep so that the deep sleep stage will overlap the time period when your body produce growth hormone (at around 2AM) or something like that.

    I wish I was a little bit taller
    I wish I was a baller
    I wish I had a girl who looked good
    I would call her.
