What's in your gym bag? redeux
« on: October 16, 2015, 12:47:29 PM »
I thought this was a thread already but can't find it. Anyway, my Son is about to turn 15, soccer is over and he's starting back in the gym with me.

For his birthday I'm thinking of giving him a gym bag with straps, wrist wraps, shaker bottle, chalk and a jug of Muscle Milk. I know it's a little overkill for a 15 year old, but why not give him a meathead gift :D

Am I missing anything? A journal maybe?

You could throw a sweat towel in for him.  Or a t-shirt.

I had thought about a towel but his gym supplies them.

I was thinking maybe a handful of Quest Bars

I use both and like them equally.  I feel a little more stable in the chucks for squatting.  Everything else I use the wrestling shoes.

Maybe a coupon for an exchange of "X" reward for "Y" accomplishment,  maybe multiple coupons as guideposts along the way. 

? Hitting certain totals in the big 3 + OHP would promote progression rather than just focusing on the show muscles.

Logging nutrition for a certain amount of time?

No missed training sessions for a certain amount of time?

Just a few ideas.

I like this. (+pullups)

His buddy that he lifted with all summer lifted all the time my son was in soccer and is getting "huge" according to his Mom ::)

But I know his Dad was a show muscles guy, I can't really weigh in on the kid as I've never seen him lift. He's the one who wore a sleevless T to his graduation and I said "holy cow that kid lifts!" at age 14  :o
