Fine line between motivating him and breaking his spirits. Don't bring him near any gymnastics facilities, Connie! Whole teams of 6 - 10 year old girls doing 10 or more at a time.

mike, that's Olga Galchenko. she and her brother Vova are considered one of the world's best juggling /passing duo. and for good reason. check out their videos.

not sure if all of the user's videos are WFS, so watch at your own discretion:

I forget exactly when, but I vaguely remember a small bit on TV where a group of pro football players were brought to an elementary school playground (imagine rings, bars, cargo nets, etc.) and were told to see if they could keep up with the kids. I think about ten runs on the cargo net, a few swings on the rings and the like and the NFL's best had collapsed in a heap with 7-10 year olds still bouncing off the walls.

...Dang, I wish I had the same energy as when I was twelve.

yeah...pro football players aren't known for their climbing ability...i think you'd have pretty different results if you did the same with olympic-level gymnasts.

that said, i don't know anyone as energetic as 8-10 year-olds.
