So recently i have heard that powerlifting stunts growth. I know weightlifting does not stunt growth but someone who was big into bodybuilding when they were younger said that powerlifting and using heavy weights for low reps (3-5 or lower) will stunt my growth because of the stress it puts on my bones. I don't really believe this but after googling it I have gotten mixed responses. For example i've found websites that say its perfectly safe, and other who say that going with too heavy of weights and going below 8 reps in your teens can stunt growth.
Can someone clear this up once and for all for me?
I'm 16 and follow a 5x5 as of now.
