I'm 14, 15 in Jan, I'm 5'7 (173cm) I've been this height ever since I started lifting (a few months ago) should I be concerned?

It can b like dat....for d height issues only it is said not to join gym early n even if u do... Weightlifting isnt recommended..

I started lifting whn I was between th ages of 11-13 I'm a 5'7 girl....If ur 5'7 still whn ur 18 thn u may question it but n a few months of lifting?? I say definitely no weightlifting has not stopped u or had any impact wat so ever on ur height at all...at ur age here n Tennessee ud b 8th or 9th grade and at ur age n our school system we hav strength and conditioning classes and our football teams lift weights also none tht I knw has ever had a problem with growth issues...th main impact...
