Bodybuilding and food supplement at 16 years old
Hello, here it is since January of this year that I practice the musculutaion (that of the altero) and I started to take supplements that advise me my physical prepa, I practice the rugby of type high national level. I am currently taking creatine monohydrate (5g before the session and 5g after) and I take BCAA (13g) after the session, I take 9 capsules of omega3 per day daily, zinc and magnesium. And so I would like to know if anything can influence my growth and my health … and I feel a little small compared to my colleagues (I measure 1m60) thank you for those who do not master this subject for not answering please .
Bodybuilding will indeed slow your growth after I understand that it is necessary in your sport.
1m60 still seems small to me, that is to say that you have not finished your growth. The ideal would still be to wait 2 years before starting intense bodybuilding like you do.
Regarding the products you take there is no particular risk
Beware of creatine it is important to hydrate even more than normal See you
No weight training DOES NOT SLOW GROWTH. You shouldn’t take it the wrong way, just that it’s a bad misconception that you have to destroy.
What reduces growth is damage to the bones, especially in the growth cartilages. These lesions are rather due to impacts. Rugby or football are more of a problem on this side of the very nature of sport. To have this type of injury in bodybuilding, you have to do anything (yucky movements with too heavy loads).
The other thing that can reduce growth is undernourishment. Which can actually come on the periphery of bodybuilding to be less fat. But it can also be seen in weight category sports (combat sports in particular). So no, no growth problems with weight training if you don’t do it anyhow.
Then for the supplements that you take a priori no problem with the growth. Omega is even pretty good (provided they are of good quality etc).
Have a good day
