  • Youngest joined me today.

    Periodically he asks if he can come with me to the gym. I don’t say no, but it hasn’t worked out for some reason or other in the past. But he came up to me again a couple days ago, asked, and so finally it happened.

    Of course, he can’t spot worth a darn. 😉 But it’s all good. It’s a lot of curiousity about what it is that I do, and what goes on in the gym. I think there’s also a bit of fascination with the gym and all the equipment.

    So I just had him do the same things I did, tho of course very scaled back. A lot of focus on body mechanics, like where to bend, keeping the back straight, and other things — posture’s a big one. And just kinda “doing what Dad does”.

    I’m not sure he’ll come with me on a regular basis, tho that would be fine if he did. But I did tell him how a lot of what he can do is just stuff at home. He knows how to do a push-up, so I showed him how to do a burpee. grin I told him, get where you can do that 10 in a row every day… that will be awesome, and you’ll be on the road to being awesome.

    One of the better gym days I’ve had in a while… and it had nothing to do with the weight I lifted. 🙂
