We were given a weight lifting machine thing as a thank you for the boys efforts in helping a friend move things out of his house.  The boys put it together today and the weight lifting contest began!

The boys began with a contest between themselves here are the results:

Bench at 50 lbs – Garrett – 30; Caleb – 6

Pecs at 50 lbs – Garrett – 25; Caleb 25

pull downs @ 50 lbs – Garrett – 32; Caleb – 64

Hamstrings @ 50 lbs – Garrett – 20; Caleb – 9

Quads @ 50 lbs – Garrett – 15; Caleb – 35

Then Mom came down and did her round  – all at 40 lbs

Bench – 25

Pecs – 20

Pull downs – 50

But I owned the legs –

Hams – 40

Quads – 41

Garrett did a second round quads and did 55 –

Mom’s second round on the quads – 55

This could be a fun way to work out!  The competition  is on and since we are a bit competitive in this household – it should get interesting!

I’ll keep you posted on our progress.  Upper body strength definitely needs some work and will help my running out tremendously!

Let the games begin!
