    Default My 3 year old deadlifted the 16kg!

    I was so proud of him! The little bugger is only 36 pounds...he grunted all the way up too-it was hilarious.

    Later, when asked what his favorite part of the weekend was, he replied "playing at the gym."

    That's right, we start 'em off young in this family!

    A body weight dead lift is pretty good for a newbie.

    I am reading this and hoping that you have a gazillion of various sports/medical qualifications and know very well what you're doing. A bodyweight lift for someone with a developing bone structure sounds like a pretty dangerous thing to do. I have heard people saying that heavy lifting that puts pressure on the spine is not a very good idea for people in their teens - never mind a three year old.

    If you're sure you know what your'e doing - cool, if not - I'd avoid those kind of challeges for a three year old. Better stick to the Naked Warrior at that age...

    I was just waiting for someone to chime in and suggest I was being a negligent mother .

    To answer your question-yes I have multiple certifications (including FMS) and am highly experienced in the field of strength and conditioning.

    I don't actually "train" him! He saw that I was using the kettlebells and he wanted to try. It was outrageously cute and funny, and of course I would not actually endorse regularly encouraging a 3 year old to do BW deadlifts.

    All that being said-I'm still a very proud mommy....

    Default "me too, me too!"

    My me too post.

    I have a little girl who will turn 5 in a couple of months. She's very slender and pretty short, and tips the scales at just over 30 pounds.

    The other day I asked her if she could deadlift one of her mom's light bells (a 20 pounder). It was up in a second. So gratifying (not to mention cute).

    Isn't it just amazing how much their little bodies can do?! The best part of it all is knowing that I am being a good role model and encouraging him to be active. There's just too much child obesity out there these days...
