Do weightlifting stunt growth in teenage boys with arm work, squats no deadlift kinda thing, does the body use energy on muscle instead of bone growth?

Not Really: There are areas of bone growth at the end of long bones, called epiphyseal plate(s). This is where we get "height" and "length" of our extremities. It has been shown if young males, particularly, engage in heavy resistance exercise too early, before these plates have fully developed, the length of these long bones can be muted. It is not excessive, meaning a 6'5" male will not become 5'11". ...Read more

Could bicep curls make arms muscular?

Could bicep curls make arms muscular?

Good choice: Some of this is genetic. You'll want to go to the gym and do 3 sets of 10 reps of the most weight you can handle. Do others that build your triceps, even pushups. Ask your physician whether an electronic muscle stimulator and/or creatine are appropriate for you. Big muscles are fun; most women are even more attracted to a man who's fit, trim and defined, and to how you treat other people. ...Read more

Notice muscle wasting in my adductor pollicis. Had ulna transposition may 2012 muscle coming back very slowly. ? Can i inject steroid into adductor?

Muscle atrophy: Muscle atrophy occurs when muscle has become denervated (nerve fibers to the muscle have died). Dead is dead. Adding steroid to the muscle or nerve won't bring it back to life. An EMG can tell you what percent of the nerve fibers are permanently lost. If you still have at least 20% or more you have a chance for recovery through re-sprouting. The higher the percentage lost the longer the recovery. ...Read more
