From left to right:
- Tiny Overlord double overhand deadlifting 12lbs on a 1″ diameter PVC homemade bar.
- 3.4lbs (total weight) on the one hand pinch plates (1.25lb Yorks) setup. Just a PVC pipe through the middle of the plates with some duct tape to make the pipe fat enough that the plates don’t slide off and on without some effort.
- Custom gripper from Aaron Corcorran! I love this gripper. Tiny Overlord loves this gripper. It is a work of art, seriously.
- Tiny Overlord climbing on the rock wall at Laugh Out Loud in Lawrence. Working on that fingertip strength.
I have more strength training toys (tools, but to her they are more toys, and I like that) that she uses off and on. No set routine, just whenever she feels like it. I’m even teaching her the hook grip for later in life when she is ready to start Olympic lifting.
