Re: My 6 year old son's first weighted pullups.

Nice! I was pretty pumped when my 2 year old son deadlifted the 8kg KB. He now has that for reps and can do the 12kg KB. heh. He's about 30lbs, so that's nearly BW.

Yeah I've got a two year old as well. She want's to be just like her big brother in the gym, no weighted pullups yet though.

Whenever he's in the garage with me and I'm lifting he has to have his "bar" (broomstick) and follow along with squats, and presses, and cleans and stuff. heh It's pretty cool. He still stuggles to atlas stone lift the med balls, but he's close!

Re: My 6 year old son's first weighted pullups.

So you're saying that soon when they interview a 22 year old winner of the crossfit games they'll be saying they've been crossfitting for 20 years?

Re: My 6 year old son's first weighted pullups.

A year or so ago, I had my team guys have fun with weighted ring pullups. I think Erik hit 30 or 40 before the owner started giving me **** about having never seen that before. He was very jazzed as that was about 50% BW.

I'm pretty sure I said something about going back to teaching the girls dancing and leaving me alone when it comes to strength training my guys.

Re: My 6 year old son's first weighted pullups.

This is good stuff, I truly wish my son (8 years old) would take more interest in doing WOD's but for now he will stick to video games and creating stuff on the computer . I am not going to force it on him if he does not want to do it, I believe that's worst.

Martin, You are exactly right. I let my son see what I do and he wants to do it. I never tell him he has to do any of this stuff, it is always his idea. Forcing exercise on your kids will turn them off to it in a heartbeat. If your son is happy and healthy, let him do his thing. He may develop an interest in exercise over time and that will be exciting for both of you.
