Dad's heartwarming workout routine with baby girl has TikTok swooning: 'Girl dads forever'

When mom and TikToker @babyznme filmed her husband’s workout routine with their baby daughter, she probably never expected it to gain over 6M views. In the heartwarming video, Mom explains through on-screen text, “Before her dad started training her, she was a psycho at meal times”. “Would climb on chairs and tables and jump on beds. Would endlessly run in circles yelling at the top of her lungs”. She continues, as we see Dad and baby gently lift weights and squat, “But now… She still does all of that, but at least I get to swoon over their mini workouts together”. “Aw she wants to be like Daddy, so sweet!” wrote one user. “Hey this is great, just remember that weight training damages the epiphyseal plate in children, so too much could stunt her growth,” wrote another user. According to the Cleveland Clinic, a child’s growth plate — or epiphyseal plate — can be damaged by particular kinds of trauma or overuse. But, judging by @babyznme’s footage, it seems clear the workout isn’t an actual fitness routine, but more of daddy/daughter bonding time
