    Is it possible to grow more? 19/m

    I'm just about 19 and standing 5'8'' I dont think i'v grown at all in the last two years... When my doctor measured me last year he actaully measured me being like 1/4 inch smaller. The gay part is i dont know any male in my family who is under 6'. dad, both grandfathers etc. Has anyone had a growth spurt after 19? I have been lifting since i was real young maybe 15, but only started doing heavy stuff, squats, bench like two years ago. Is it possible that this stunted my growth a little?

    bro,
    i am just a little older than you, and been at the exact same height for 3 years (5'8). every male in my family is 6'0 and over too. it certainly seems to be raining sheit on us doesn't it man? i wouldn't get my hopes up.

    You should be able to go to your doc and find out if your growth plates are closed. It is possible that your body is a little slower at maturing than others. Don't sweat it!

    I knew a guy who went from 5' 11' at 19 to 6'2" at 22. Its possible. All the growth came the last year. Lifting won't stunt your growth.
