Begin standing, with weight on floor between your legs
Bending slightly, secure weight, and pull it to your chest
Do 3 sets of 12
Lay on your back
Bring weight to chest and extend arms
Do 3 sets of 15
Returning to your feet, place weight on back
Perform a deep squat until your hips are below your knees
Do 3 sets of 10
Hold weight in arms
In a series of small bounces, lunge side-to-side
Repeat until exhaustion
The last exercise is most effective accompanied by singing.
Also, it helps to name your weights.

It’s delightful to see their progress.
Lawrence, with Calvin behind
