Exercise

Perspective and inspiration

I’ve told her she needs to do 500/week of bodyweight squats, and once she hits about 10,000, she might be ready to do some light goblet squats.

I’ve been teaching my daughter Olivia how to squat, a gift she lost, courtesy of all the sitting kids do in school. So we’re back to square one on form.

I’ve told her she needs to do 500/week of bodyweight squats, and once she hits about 10,000, she might be ready to do some light goblet squats.

Anyway, recently I was looking at Twitter and saw this video. Some of you may have seen it, also.

I said, “Hey Olivia, I want to show you something,” and she came over. I said, “What do you notice about this?”

Olivia: She’s a girl?

Me: And?

Olivia: She’s young?

Me: And?

Olivia: She’s strong?

Me: AND???

Olivia: Oh my god….

Me: Please don’t ever complain about me asking you to do 500 squats per week with your bodyweight on two good legs. Deal?

Olivia: Deal.
