Josephine was delighted when I told her the other day that it was time to learn how to bench press. We started out super light, of course. Just the homemade faux barbell I made her when she was a baby. Just to get the feel of the movement. She begged me to let her try the 45 pound Olympic bar. I politely declined her request, but told her she would slowly work up to benching the “heavy bar.” That really made her day. I would say she was “chuffed” about it.
