Yes i am telling you that wont affect your growth. Well if weightlifting can fuck up a lot of things in your body so can soccer and track and football and any other sport for that matter. When you run i believe, but am not completely sure, there is a force of about 6 times your body weight put on your spine. Lets say your 150 lbs. 6x150=900 lbs of force on your spine.
So really lifting heavy weights seems safer than running. Because 405lbs is nothing compared to 900lbs
Weightlifting is not like any of those sports… /thread. I’m not arguing with a 14 year old anymore lol, You don’t add as much muscle onto your body with those sports, you don’t put your body under that much stress with those sports.
Your body’s under the same amount of if not more stress with those sports when you run than when you squat or deadlift heavy weight. Why does it matter that im 14, I did my research and i know that weightlifting stunting growth is a myth that just wont fucking die.
Lol, no way in hell soccer is more stressful that weightlifting, that’s like insulting weight lifting. football, at your age, isn’t more stressful, yes your running and you get hit and all that, but go dead lift your max for 3x8 then add 50lbs to that and do it for 2 and see how you feel, and i should mention I’ve played football since i was a youngin.
Weightlifting hits your muscles directly, any of these sports may involve running and whatnot but if you weightlift usually you do cardio along with it so your running there, and i have no idea why i’m still arguing this i’m just surprised you think soccer and tennis are more stressful on your body then weight lifting…football can be but not till your in alot higher levels i suppose.
Also, your fact about jogging and 900lbs, its just BS, it’s Completely different from actually squatting a shit ton of weight.
EDIT: also what are you stats to be arguing this anyways, do you have any muscle? Have you any experience in any of these sports? Or are you just a skinny dude/and or fat guy?
