I don't believe that. I mean your height is determined by you pituitary gland so unless there is some hormonal imbalance or something wrong then no its not going to stunt your growth. plus your only 14! sheesh give you self time to grow you not done yet!

No. Lifting weights will not affect your growth. It can affect how your joints develop in certain cases, but that is rare also.

i think it does. you should look for a doctor and ask for this. but you shouldn't take really strong exercises before 15
