That bar weighs 45. It looks like a 5 and a 2.5 on there so it weighs maybe 60 pounds. The average 5 year old weighs about 39.5 pounds. Kid just dead lifted almost twice his body weight.
@CocoasBro, he’s older than 5 I think. that’s probably a body weight lift for him. But it’s basically a fat bar in his tiny hands, so much more impressive.
@CocoasBro, that's definitely not a 45 pound bar
@Not him again, really? Looks like my 45 pound olympic bar to me but i dont know all that much about bars.
@sushi fish, you sure? Looks like a 5 year old to me.
@CocoasBro, it might be upon closer inspection. It's hard to tell on potato vision
@Not him again, hard to tell period.
@CocoasBro, heavy weight lifting can permanently damage developing epiphysial (sp?) plates in several bones. This is a very bad idea.
@Empshok, im sure hes not lifting to heavy. If hes lifting at that young an age im sure his family is aware of that.
@CocoasBro, bout to say that’s actually really impressive
Great job kid
@megamanx181x, and this is how that kid has back problems for life that form is atrocious. Bend the knees kid and lift with your legs not all back. He’s excited so just get him to do it right
@BigJohnson86, he’s young his bones will adapt and then cripple him later in life
"I'm gonna be like All-Might!"
Kid shouldve walked away and started beating the crowd for now cheering loud enough
Poor kid. His coach needs to be fired.
@Emaleigh, its not bad form for a kid. Thats honestly probably bodyweight or close for him looking at him. Definitely over an 80% lift, and I've seen college level with worse form
@thrawnfett, yeah but this kid is being taught to sacrifice form to lift more weight than he should. It may not hurt him now but it will.
@Emaleigh, agreed but I don't think he is. I think he's just "new and bad". Which makes sense for a what 7 year old? He pushed his hips through wayyyyy after sure, but he DID. I've seen 550 lifts in person without them pushing through ever
@thrawnfett, hmm, that's an interesting perspective. I haven't considered that.
This is the result of not being able to hit your kids anymore
@Not him again, what?
@Not him again, so not hitting your kids gets them invested in healthy activities?
@Mr repost, no, it makes them act like total douches when they achieve something
@Not him again, suuuuuuure
@Not him again, of course, how dare that kid get encouragement for achieving something they worked for! How dare they be proud they succeeded?
@Not him again, Damn kids and their confidence
@40 to Pun, sorry guys and gals. Just got put on some new meds and I stopped drinking, and the two combined are....not a good thing to do
@Mr repost, never meant you should go bash their head into the wall. Their age determines the amount of force. 0-4, nothing. 4-8, little bop on their head. 8-12, little harder bop on their head. 13 and beyond? I will toss you off this porch
@Not him again, I dont agree with that abusing your kids in any form is unacceptable and shows flaws in parenting but I just wanna explain that beating you kid creates more problems than it solves.
@Mr repost, "beating" and "hitting" are totally different things. When I was growing up my dad worked all day and went straight to night school. Did he "hit" me, yeah sometimes. But he never "beat" me until I (thought) was old enough to fight back. I didn't grow up in some suburb. I grew up in an area where you either learned how to fight, or get your ass kicked or shot. Like I will say AGAIN, I don't condone beating your kid, but giving them a quick smack on the back of the head will put them in line better than just sitting there and saying "oh Billy, you shouldn't have done that, go to your room for 10 minutes, and when you come out, your mom made cake". That's why you young people are so soft. You grew up in some rich neighborhood where everyone puts on a fake smile to your neighbors, cut your lawn at the same time. Fvck that. Grow up in a place where if a car backfired you hit the ground because you weren't sure if it was gunfire or not. I love my dad for teaching me how to grow
@Not him again, up. Some kid tries to bully you? Blast him with the left. Let me guess your age....I'd say about 20, or 37 and you grew up rich
@Not him again, Best of luck with the new medication and sobriety. Please don’t hit your kids.
Nobody gonna mention the yellowweight with a full Sanchez stach?
As funny as this is, don’t get your kids into weight lifting too early. It’ll stunt their growth. Pursue other forms of athleticism early on.
Kids like 15 now
