Do squats and deadlifts decrease your height?
I can't seem to get a definitive answer.
>>
Of course. It's why I avoid them.

Just do leg curls and extensions instead.

It'll improve your posture, making you taller, which is long term. Short term, it will compress your back ever so slightly(talking quarter of an inch at most), if you've lifted very heavy, but will always disappear the morning after.

Yeah but some sources from Bodybuilding.com and Reddit show that it is permanent. And its always a professional saying that it does decrease height

>Do squats and deadlifts decrease your height?
Yes, but if you complete the motion and stand up, you gain it back again
>>
>>35586426
You have layers of cushioning inbetween the vertibrae of your spine. These get compressed throughout the day and relax while you sleep. People in general are slightly taller when they wake up than when they go to bed.

I squat 360, dead 500 and I'm the same height as I were 3 years ago.
>>
>>35586487
OP thats a fucking meme. Even if youre going through puberty its not gonna make a difference. How many powerlifters are manlets? None, theyre just fat so they look proportionately short

yes. if you keep applying high amounts of vertical pressure on your discs chances are they're going to flatten slightly. tough shit, don't be a manlet.
and if you are, what do you have to lose?
>>
>>35586426

The only way to cure squat height decrease are leg extensions
>>
>>35586426
It's leg press that makes you shorter you fucking idiot. Think about it.

>20kg

This is a joke right? Like, that plate is 20kg but the tire adds more?

Even if it did, are you really so fucking insecure that you'd lose your shit if you lost 1cm of your height?

Holy fuck /fit/ is pathetic

>Ill avoid the best lifts there are because i cant afford to lose 1cm on my height

How can someone even worry over 1 cm, if you're short, you're short anyways. If you're tall the 1 cm won't even matter.
>>
>>35588339
kill yourself. you are unwelcome everywhere

The compression is temporary and marginal. It will fade as you sleep and your spine stretches back out. If you are truly bothered by the temporary loss of .25 in, try hanging from a bar or doing your chin-ups at the end of the workout.

Ultimately, the lifetime effect is probably a net positive: stronger core/lower back/etc. mean standing taller, and I'm willing to bet that sort of resistance training helps fight off the natural height loss that comes with aging. On top of that, if you are still growing, lifting is helping you milk that growth hormone.
>>
Yeah, but if the complete the second half of the exercise you'll return to your normal height
