Went to my mom's house last night, and my kid brother has an ez-curl bar loaded up with a 45, a 10, and a 5 on each side...(his workout consists of all curls ). So my 12 year old daughter says "That looks heavy!" and goes to pick it up. Lifted it right off the ground with no problem whatsoever! I was like "do that again!" And so she did! Squatted right into postion and locked that fucker right out and held it for a couple of seconds... She's 5'2" or so and probably weighs about 110. (No, she's not fat). I'll see if I can find a pic of her on my work comp for ref.
