Since March, our school district has converted over to a remote learning platform. This is by far the most interesting experience we have go through with our two kids and their school work.
Some of the benefits are they get to manage their work like you would in the real world. They can both work on their projects at any time of the day, any day of the week. Sometimes we’ll help Owen knock out the majority of his school work during the weekend.
Part of their school’s remote learning curriculum are lacking in the physical education department. My kids are also my kids, so they both enjoy the computer as a recreational activity. However, this leaves both kids at their computers for hours out of the day. Every day.
I still go out to the good ol iron church daily, as it is part of my routine. Somehow I managed to cajole Caralyne enough to join me.
At first, Caralyne hated this. Now, she kind of likes it. Just not squat days, she hates those.
Owen has been more hit or miss, and I would say it is mostly because I lack decent equipment for his strength levels. I ordered some 10, 15, 20, 25lbs bars online, but since everyone is buying home gym equipment I might get it in July. Otherwise, Owen should really stick with bike riding and other normal kid activities.
My goal for the two of them is to just have a decent strength baseline. Maybe body weight squats and deadlifts, and if they really enjoy things they can shoot for 2x body weight.
