Do squats and deadlifts decrease your height?
I can't seem to get a definitive answer.
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.
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.
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?
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
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.
