Maybe : The effect of running depends on the distance and the age of child. A prepubertal child who runs longs distances and does not maintain adequate nutrition may not have the needed building blocks for growth. A separate issue is the effect on bones as far as density and injury is concerned. Excessive running and loss of necessary body fat will interfere with menstrual cycles in girls. ...Read more
Not really unless...: Weight lifting is not a good idea for individuals before puberty. It is better to be your own resistance: pull ups, climbing rope, push ups, running, etc. Weight training will not stunt growth per se, but can damage the growth plates or causes a fracture to occur. Weight lifting is not a good sporting activity before puberty! gains in strength will be much less, as well. ...Read more
Possible: The expected height of kids would be average parental height + 2.5 inch for boys and -2.5in for girls.

Can I grow taller using hgh? i'm 5ft and have short parents(5'9&4'9) but tall grandparents(6'1&5'11).
Maybe, probably not: Your parents' heights are used to estimate your potential height with something called the mid-parental height calculation. Using the data provided, your expected height is just over 5', so you are probably close to your maximum height given your age. But don't give up hope, some of us have later growth spurts! If not, learn to love that extra half an inch and round up to 5'1". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Height growth , increase height through yoga - http://bodyheightcom.Blogspot.In known as a height growth, increase height through yoga is possible wi?
Not possible but...: The yoga exercises advised on that website will improve your posture & help you stand straighter to maximize the height you have, but it is impossible for you to grow even 1 more mm.

Not for them.: This is really for children who have a deficiency in growth hormone, and short stature for noonan's syndrome, turner's syndrome, and no catch-up growth by 2-4 years. It is also for adults with low growth hormone and other hormones, and those with low growth hormone as a child. It is apparently not for teenagers.

Excessive masterbution from age15 male caused early onset puberty causing my growth plates to close prematurely resticting to my potential height gain?

Does lifting 5-10kg weights affect height growth and pushups too do they stop growth of height...?
No and No: Most people reach their maximum height in their late teens. Without nutritional problems or chronic childhood illnesses, height is largely based on genetics and parental heights. Aside from eating right, exercising, sleeping well, and being happy, there's not much a person nor his doctor can do to increase height. In rare cases, growth hormone is approved for use in younger, extremely short kids. ...Read more
