I think i did. I started working out a few months before 16. I was 5'9, and my dad and mom are 5'8 and 5'2. Right now at almost 18 years old, I'm 6'0. I guess I'm the second tallest person in my family. When you work out, you release Human Growth Hormone which is not only important for muscle growth, but also for height growth.
Firstly, epic bump. Secondly, training doesn't make you grow in height - the release of HGH post-workout occurs in temporary short bursts and has no effect on your height whatsoever. I'm taller than my mother and father and I didn't start lifting weights until I was an adult and already 6'2''.

Exercise in general can help you lose bodyfat, which has an effect on hormones. Low bodyfat = High testosterone, low estrogen and high HGH ( https://www.healthline.com/nutrition...increase-hgh#1 , see nummer 1 and 7.)
I didn't grow to 6'0 by only exercising. I also ate a lot and slept a lot. So of course, there are other factors contributed to my height growth.

It's true that you get a temporary pump after an intense workout.

Again, lifestyle factors don't influence your height. It's all genetic. Otherwise every lad that starts going to the gym in their teens would grow tall.

6'2? I really didn't think you could get any more attractive.

What a dumb excuse, as if every teenager is committed to go to the gym and if they didn't grow taller they'll say "it's 100% genetics".

Study more on genetics and epigenetics and you'll understand what I'm saying.
