    Default Training with my son

    Max started lifting after I stopped lifting in November 2007. I was starting a new business and my head wasnt in the right place. I had some niggles so I figured a couple of months off would be good for me.

    Those couple of months off lasted till June 2010. Meanwhile Max has deadlifted and powercleaned more weight than I ever did, at a much lighter body weight and much, much lower age.

    Well today was the first time EVER that we trained side by side. He is a fair bit stronger than me currently, I'll do what I can for the old guys on here to catch him.

    Howie and I train very different to the way my clients train in the evening, Max said he really enjoyed the session, it was something he'd never done before. He'll be training with us whenever he can.

    I hope you guys get the oppurtunity to lift with your kids, its quite a special feeling.

    I'm staying the f u c k away from Jesse though. I dont mind being weaker than a 75kg 18yo with National records, but I'll be f u c k e d if I'm going to let a 59kg 16yo outlift me. I watched him squat 100kg x 5, 105 x 3 and 110 x 1 yesterday, thats just 10kg off double bodyweight. He also did 20 perfect dips with a 10kg vest on. He is also the only guy in the gym to complete my chin challenge.

    5 x narrow parallel grip chins
    5 x rope chins
    5 x ring chins
    5 x wide grip chins

    No rest between sets, dead hang between reps

    He can train alone for all I care

    Very impressive markos you must be a proud man,

    Not to turn this into a Talkshow , how do go keeping them out of trouble?

    I have a 14yr old, he's a strong little fu# @er to , not in comparison too your boys , he's followed me with the boxing side of things ,@ 51kgs deads 105x3 and squats 75x3, he's had 14 fights won 11.

    Because he's stronger and tougher than he's mates, its hard keeping that bloody ego in check,he's a good kid doesnt get in huge trouble , but sometimes his attitude can get him in trouble.

    Just wondering if its been any sort of problem for you?

    cheers

    Should've trained harder when you were young, Markos.

    I'm gonna give my future son(s) some big numbers to chase after!
    First you get the powerlifts, then you get the women, then you get the money.

    Max and Jesse have not caused Nina or I one second of trouble. Neither boy has an ego or attitude that would land them in trouble, both have played sport from 6yo, we've had a dream run.

    I doubt Howie will join Christian, he's not even working as a Naturopath anymore.

    Max trains Jesse when he trains his clients on Mon-Wed-Fri. He just trains him the way I trained Max. Jesse is actually more explosive than Max, and leaner.

    You would think a 205kg squat, 165kg bench and 102.5kg MP would be enough lol

    The only one he'll struggle with is the bench, he wont pass that for another couple of years lol, he'll do the squat well before he's 20 though, that shit is messed up
