Nobody on his team wanted to perform tackle drills with him.

    I must note, genetics plays a big part. I am fairly big and my wife is strong as ****. She powerlifted in college.


    EDIT: Just found a couple pics I want to show off.
    First one is my son and daughter before a game. (Note same outfits for halloween, hence the name of the file)
    Second is a back shot of my son at a game.

    The Kid next to my son is 8 years old and weighs 62 pounds. My son in that shot had just turned 7 less than 1 month before the photo.
    Holy ****. I wasnt that tall till I was 10 or 12 Thats a big mother****er compared to the 8 yr old, lmao. Thats awesome dude.

    So you should be saying something like: "And don't be bringing it to me in no damn sippy-cup either- I'm an adult, and I deserve an adult glass...WAAHHHHHHhhhhh..."

    I won't force my daughter to lift, but I think she is learning by example to do it. Since I lift at home, and do some of my boxing at home, she see's me doing it and wants to do it to. She'll drop whatever she's doing instantly and come help daddy workout. She even has a broomstick that she uses to mimic whatever I just did. I about LMAO the first time she jumped up on the bench and layed down and started benching while I was resting between sets. She's still little(she turns 4 in Jan.), so obviously her attitude might change, but I think her seeing me workout religiously will have a huge impact on her wanting to workout also.

    My son, he must do push ups and sit ups and hang ups before he can play video games, and he will eat what I tell him, its for his own good, he will get laid like mad in high school, because I thaught him the value of being physically strong. He must also follow my rules with no exception, and those will be cool rules, if he is going to play loud music, it better be rock music, and he must pinch the girls in class in the hiney, if he doesnt do this, I will come to his school and pinch them for him, so he can see how it is done.

    The year he turns 15, I will introduce him to Al bundy, he will watch every episode together with me, and he will laugh.

    Ditto, and I'm gonna force them to play hockey, all year round. I know it.... I have this feeling that my future kids will grow up to be the next Gretzky, or Lemieux, or Wickenheiser, if I get a girl.

    All kidding aside, I would like my kids to be physically active, especially in team sports. But I will definately will not be one of those idiot parents, who pressure their kids, because of dreams of them becoming future sport superstars.

    I would like to see my kids lift, but I would like to pass on my guitars even more.
    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

    LOL, I mentioned earlier this year in my journal about her picking up a 20 lb DB. Not a bad deadlift for a three yr. old.

    Yeah I was thinking of teaching my kid the value of a bit of extra muscle and strength in the high school years, definitely. But hey, if he smokes less dope than I did in high school, I will be happy.

    I'll be a role model for my kids by lifting weights and eating right. Kids, at least while they are young anyway, try to replicate the behavior of their parents. My mom was a fitness gal (running and lifting weights) when she was younger so the importance of exercising sort of rubbed off on me and it'll be something that will stick with me for the rest of my life.

    If you want your kids and wife (I'm speaking from a male perspective) to lift and stay healthy, you have to lead by example.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
