When I was a little guy my dad used to lock himslef in our TV room and do 1,000 push-up nights in sets of 100. I am pretty sure he is part mutant or something, but his last 100 was usually with me or my aunt on his back. My aunt is older and was probably a little over 100 lbs., I was in the 40 lb. range. He also used to load up the leg press at the gym with all of the 45 lb. plates it could fit and then have me and/or my brothers sit on the sled as he would rep out over 1,000 pounds. We also have pictures of him shoulder pressing me and one of my brothers like we were dumbells. These are things I hope to one day accomplish with kids of my own. My dad has always motivated me to push myself and I guess this little story can help motivate you all as well. Enjoy incorporating your kids into your fitness routine and setting a good example for them.

"Most men stop when they begin to tire. Good men go until they think they will collapse. But the VERY BEST men know that the mind tires before the body and push themselves beyond all limits. Only when all of these limits have been shattered can the unattainable be reached." ~Dan Gable
