For over 10 years, teens have been asking us questions on every topic imaginable. While we are no longer taking new questions, we have a wealth of information we would like to share with teenagers.

There should be no connection between weightlifting and height. Our height is usually determined by a combination of our parents' heights. The children tend to be a little taller. Also your final height cannot be known until you are about 21-22 yrs. of age.
Let me know if you have any other questions about this.
