I'm 17 and about 5,5/5,6

Feel like I won't ever grow..

Is 21 the age males stop growing?

At least 5,8 is what I want. That's a tall order.

You might make it, 5'8 is possible from your age.

Another reasonably short person here. I'm 18 years old and am 5'7. Is there still a possibility of me growing more? I don't smoke, drink etc. I go to the gym regularly and use good form making sure I don't damage my growth plates. A thing I would like to point out is that both of my parents are small (only slightly shorter than me, I'd say around 5'6), however, my mothers dad and her brothers are all about 6 feet tall whereas my dads side are again around my height. Do you think I have potential to grow more considering both sides of my parents? Thanks!

You look skinny in your pic and since you're 17 your growth plates probably haven't fused yet. So I advise eating more. Good nutrition will help with growth and like ZRO said 5ft 8 seems likely.

Did any guys here grow much after 19? I would love a few more inches, but at 19 I'm not sure anymore. I guess I'm looking for some hope...

Feel like a manlet even though I'm 6'.
My brother's 22 and is still growing. He's like 6 ft 4.5, a year ago he was like an inch shorter. It's crazy man.

Mate told me if dips hurt (or at least cause a not comfortable sort of feeling) your sternum then you've got a good chance of still growing. I choose to believe it's BS cause I've stopped getting it now.

It does sound a bit brosciencey tbh. You stopped getting the sternum pains? How old are you? Have you stopped growing?

5ft 7 is a good height for a girl. How tall are your parents?

MFW viewing this thread as a glorious 6'4" master race overlord




















Seriously though, 6'0" is pretty good. Average height is 5'9" and the standard deviation is 3", placing you 1 standard deviation above normal. 2/3 of men are 5'10" +/- 3". About 1/6 are on each side, so 1/6 of men are taller than 6'0" and 1/6 are taller than 6'0". Being at 6'0" means that you're taller than (or the same height as) 5/6 of the population. That's not too bad, dude. A lot of people would kill to be your height. Source.

Stay away from the misc and /fit/ if you're susceptible to body image issues, they're only going to take an existing problem and multiply it hundredfold.

Probably is yet reading the wiki article on it makes sternum fusing (right word?) makes it sounds vaguely plausible as an indicator

Yeah, in the last few months. Not sure when exactly, not long enough to really know if I've stopped growing since if I am then it's at a really slow rate. I'm 22, few months from 23. Grew 1.5 inch since 19 but hadn't grown since I was 12 before that.

Thanks man. When you put it like that I realise I'm quite lucky. Defo staying away from the misc though

It would be nice if it was. I still get sternum pains when doing dips :/
