    16 yo daughters first squat pr (vid)

    Had to make a thread about this. I think this probably makes me happier than any lift I have ever done!


    She is 16 and just started lifting a few weeks ago. She NAILED her first 135 squat! Holy cow.... Cant even explain how cool this is to me (proud dad talking). Really just happy she is so happy!

    She had to quit ballet after having ankle surgery. Been lost lately and asked me if I could show her how to train. She has really taken to it!

    That is awesome. My 19 year old son trains and I'm extremely proud of him, but with that noted, I might have been a tad more proud if my daughter (now 24 and married) had trained just because so few women lift.

    How much does she weigh? This is more than her own body weight - right?

    This is at least one bright spot arising out of all this mess. Love her enthusiasm, and I really hope she stays with it. You've set a great example, ID.

    Thank you guys for sharing in the moment with me. It was really cool (and I had no idea) when I came in the door. I had been out for the day.

    I had told her NOT to put any more weight on than 65lbs when I first showed her. (but of course kids dont listen!)

    Anyway, that lift for her brought me more genuine happiness than any PR I ever set.

    Having not danced in a year since her ankle surgery, she has been kind of lost. I have not pushed her at all to lift, but a few months ago, she started talking about wanting to train. I still never said anything. At Christmas, I bought a plyo box, kettle bell, and slam ball for her to add to the gym. Then she said...I want to learn to squat!

    She is an athletic little thing. Truth is, she was too naturally muscular to go very far in ballet. (those that do, are pretty waif)
    I took this pic last year at the beach. Man...I wish I had her vertical leap (let alone the ability to kick my own head! )
    She is also incredibly self-driven. Teen years can be tough, but having good and productive outlets and interests are a great thing.


    Thanks again!

    This is awesome man. One of my best memories is lifting with my dad when I was a teenager! We used to hit the gym before school every morning. I’m sure she will look back and thank you again in the future.

    My son is 12 and has not taken an interest. It if fun to see my daughter go after it all on her own. It really is fun to watch! Thanks!

    I think we all know as parents 'control' is an illusion. All you can do is give your kids the opportunities and try to introduce them to things that will be beneficial, but in the end, they will take THEIR path. As my kids have gotten older, I have realized the satisfaction of watching them make 'good' choices all on their own. I dont think as a parent I could want anything more than what it right for them, makes them happy, and HOPEFULLY leads them to a fulfilled life.



    Thanks everyone again. I am going to ask her if she wants to upgrade some footwear!. Going to start working deadlifts next!!!!

    After this is all over, I am thinking about bringing her to a CrossFit place right up the road. While not my ideal of training, I think the balance and focus on athleticism rather than overall strength will be good for her. Plus, besides the fact that crossfitters seem to drink the kool-aide too much, they all seem like a passionate and supportive group. The place near me, has a once a week gathering for teen girls. (besides their regular training)

    Thank you!


    I asked her after this if she really wants to continue doing this. She responded and enthusiastic YES! Adidas is running a sale so I ordered her a set of Addidas lifting shoes! She picked blue with a coral bottom.

    I cant wait till she tries them. They give such a feeling of confidence under the bar. (but I just have to keep her from trying to 'max' again for a while!)

    Thanks all for sharing in a proud parent moment.
