+ 14 My son asked me to go to the gym!
My son (15) has for the first time showed an interest in fitness the other day and today I got to go to the gym with him and it was GREAT!!! Then on top of that we were goofing around on the internet and came across a Joey Swoll vid about a boy and his dad working out. It brought tears to my eyes and my son saw this. He wiped my tears with his shirt and hugged me. He said "I love you Dad.".
I wish I could have had this with my own Dad.
I feel so, so blessed right now and wanted to share with my brothers on here.
My son asked me to go to the gym once. But it sounded more like, "...no dad, really, you need to get your fat ass to the gym".
Honestly I thought that I had over shared here and was very reluctant to come back to my post. Thank you to everyone who has been supportive. Due to my upbringing I really thought I would get a bunch of your too sensitive/much of a pussy posts.
I love you all for this very much.
He is in fact very sore but I told him to eat what we do and it will go away. DOMs are a good thing. He hasn't lost motivation so far.
I get the whole summer with him and we are going to dominate.
Plus for me is more of the ladies look our way in the gym. He points them out to me and I get to see the young ladies checking him out that he doesn't.
No matter how macho a man thinks he is it’s all out the window with your kids. No matter how macho I think I am when my daughter asked me to have a tea party with her stuffed animals, you better believe I sat down with her and drank fake tea and we had that fucking tea party. That’s what a REAL man does!!!!!
No joke Bill. I have a 13 yr old daughter and when she comes and puts her arms around my neck it's like the world stops for a lil bit. I always think to myself that it could be the last time this happens and to treasure it. The term "Momma's boys" and "Daddy's girls" exist for a reason. As important as it is to be there and present for your son it is doubly so for your lil girl. She looks to us to see how a man is supposed to treat her. I could overlook a lot in my daughter-in-law as ladies can be mercurial but I WILL NOT overlook many things in my son-in-law.
I had asked her recently how she would like me to behave to any boy she brings home. She looked me dead in the eye and told me she wanted me to be a little scary, that way she would know what he was made of. I thought my heart would burst from my chest. We shook on it.
Not all boys are bad. The boy might really like her and he will be protecting your daughter when your not There to. Hope she meets a good one
Fucking love that movie.
All's good... but you should get your estrogen levels checked anyway.
What a dick head LOL.
Edit: "That's what your mom said"
Happy days my guy. When he's 18 he'll be built like a damn tank. He's gonna have to swat those college women away like flies.
This is awesome! Just got the same from my stepdaughter.
My stepdad IS my dad. He is the one who taught me patience and love. Kudos to you and all the stepdads out there picking up the mantle. Question though. Does she only want to work legs?
Thanks man, I really appreciate that. And thankfully no, not just legs, she wants to improve her overall shape. It’s awesome to see youth interested in fitness!
Ease him into it. Don't want him to be so sore the next day that he can't even move which might take some of the wind out of his sails
Or maybe he's like us freaks who get a deep sense of satisfaction of being sore as hell lmao
That's great bro, nothing better. With a bit of luck he'll get well into it for the foreseeable future.
Remind him leg day is written in stone lol.
Hell yeah buddy that's awesome. My little man is 2 1/2 and I'm dreaming of this day already. Enjoy it brother.
Dude I've thought of this day from the moment I held him in my arms. Time. It seems like forever when you are young but when it comes it strikes like lightning and it means everything.
Keep it fun
That’s really cool. My daughter got involved in martial arts with me when she was six. Ten years on it’s “our thing” that we do together and has created a great bond. Very proud of the fact that she’s already much better than me.
Who does the Boyfriend have to be more scared of - You or her??!! lol
Thankfully she still thinks teenage lads are mostly twats.
Nice one mate!! I bet that means everything when you are a father
Tell him how many more girls he will get once the muscles start showing. Tell him they will come to him and not the other way around. Tell him Some boys around his age will try to discourage him because they can’t achieve what he’s doing. This will change his whole life for the better in every way. Plus you get to bind with him.
Yes sir and well said, the girls worth pursuing will show that that they like you first. It's a subtle dance but do not pursue the whores.
I’m excited about this. I hope he gets jacked. He can go very far natural being only 15 with all that testosterone running through him.
The dude already has a vein structure I could only dream of. I conceived him at the height of my physical prowess, I'm not sure if that makes a difference but he is developing far different than I did and better I would say.
