    I used to always do the kid lift workouts back in the day . I remember putting my oldest son across my lower legs and lifting them up and down (and showing off cause my husband couldn't do it!). Now he weighs about 70kg... lol. I sometimes still lift my 10 year old DD (she's about 35kg), but not as often as I used to (when she asked to be picked up and carried around).

    Sounds more like play than a work out and if you follow PBF you know that is a complement.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.
    PS
    Don't forget to play!

    Heavy duty gardening is one; cleaning house while wearing my daughter's 30# backpack is another.

    Do it the opposite way, still lifting the five year old as a warm up but start heavier and go down - better for your central nervous system and force output... nerdy shit but it's true - also makes more sense to lift heavier weight when fresh than when fatigued.

    For me it's usually some sort of balancing as I'm still learning so I take whatever chance I get to practice.

    This weekend I moved a ton (an actual ton) of 20-foot planks leftover from a deck-building project from the edge of my backyard to the side of the house, and re-stacked them there. It took me two or three hours and required relocating a nest of toads, but I did it all of my own accord, no dollies or anything.
