    I wasn't worried about the three year old, lol! Kids bounce.

    But the shoulder joint is pretty flexible/fragile & it's not a great a idea IMO to lift anything for weight training that can wiggle on its own (speaking as a former personal trainer, here.) Obviously, you will be lifting your kids anyway for fun/play!

    I have seen too many rotator cuff injuries, perhaps!

        Oh don't tell my husband that. One of my biggest motivators, both in trying to lose fat myself and making my husband build muscle is so that he can carry me upstairs when I fall asleep on the sofa and can't be bothered tr walk there myself!

          Well there is a bit of a difference ergonomically between benchpressing a potentially wiggly 3 year old and carrying a body close to your chest.

            Re: feeling like push-ups work your biceps more, do tricep push-ups. Move your hands no more than shoulder width apart and make sure your palms are directly under your shoulders - when you go down to the push up, your elbows should brush your sides. That will move the focus to the tricep - they are tough! look it up on youtube, there are variations. Any tricep move you are doing, try pull your elbows in - its easy to let them splay out, which won't work the muscle properly.
