Thats really cool.

I hope when my kids get older they get interested in powerlifting. it teaches kids so many life lessons for outside of the gym.

One of the reasons I'm most excited to have kids is so I can train them haha.

I keep hoping one of my daughters will take an interest in powerlifting. They were all great athletes in H.S. and very strong in the weight room. My son-in-law is powerlifting with us and that is great! It's fun watching how Johnny and Josh are progressing and enjoying this together!
