Okay sorry to bring this thread back, but I absolutely had to considering what my mother told me today. So I got home from the gym today and I was making my PWO shake. She was bitching about my protein intake being too high (Really? 200-250g is too much for someone who's 180 some-odd pounds?) and she was saying that the reason I'm short is partially my fault because I lift heavy a lot of the time.
She said when I'm lifting, my test levels go through the roof and that's causing my growth plates to harden and close up which is why I'm 5'7". I have a couple of problems with this:
1) She's 5'2" and my dad's 6'1", so it's mostly her shitty genetics.
2) I'm almost positive that test levels are really low after you're done lifting?
3) She's a nurse, so she thinks she knows everything (even though this sounds incredibly stupid to say).
So what the fuck is going on here?
