Getting Stronger and Healthier for my Son


I am now squatting 95 pounds! That’s right, 95 pounds.

I can wide squat 85 pounds.

And closed leg squat 65 pounds 

I can do 30 burpees with ease!

Why lower weight with closed-leg squats???? I started that weighted squat later than the regular squat and you have to squat down pretty low…which really works your butt.

I haven’t measured insured in a while, but I’ll wait till the end of the summer for bigger/better results.

My personal trainer, who I love, said I am getting stronger, have more endurance, and of course cracks up with me while I work out.
