Squatting my kids and hip-thrusting...

Today I came home after my workout, and my five year old wanted a piggy back ride. I said "oh my are you light" and did a few squats with her on my back. Then my 7yo wanted to do the same. Easy peasy. Then my 9yo. Easy. She weighs like 62lbs, that's nothing :)
Then my 11yo, she is heavy. Was still able to. Then I said I could hip thrust or glute bridge her :) She did the superman on my lap and I lifted her up like nothing. Then my husband said, ok, try me. He weighs 210lbs and I do 160 lbs in my glute bridges 3x8 so I was sure I could do one rep. He did the superman on my hips, I went up and he tipped over and landed on his head. He had been so sure I would not be able to do it that he had not even balanced his upper and lower body out :D

So, he was impressed. And for my kids I am superwoman anyway. Life is good!

    Great job! I squatted my 5 year old, my 3 year old and 6 month old at the same time no problem. So awesome

    I've been wanting to squat with weights but don't have any. I'm going to feel silly with a 6'2" teenager on my shoulders, but may as well try...
