    It doesn't. Don't let the fear stop you from being active. Pull-ups, pushups, squats and ab crunches help tone up and shape your figure. Any form of exercise, including strength exercises can have negative consequences if performed incorrectly.
    An accident can damage your growth plates which are located at each end of a bone where growth occurs (growing bones fuse around 18 years of age). Injury to the growth plate can create a risk to developing bones. Be sure to work with a certified coach, who can show you how to exercise with correct form and technique without injuring yourself. Maintaining safeguards minimises the risk of injury. Adolescents should avoid lifting heavy weights.
    Power lifting and body building are also best avoided until you turn 16, at least.
