I don't have him on a diet, but do watch his caloric intake and diet. DH thinks that we should have him do some basic exercises to help him with his strength. Situps, pushups, a little weight training and riding his bike alot. Nothing strenuous, but on a regular basis. I think it would be good for him because he would feel better about his body (the extra weight bothers him some, he has mentioned it).
I was thinking about talking to him about doing these things on a daily basis, not alot, maybe 15 minutes a day. Make it into a positive thing, even have his brother do it to. We, as a family, are going to exercise more. The only problem is that if he starts complaining about it, I don't want it to be just another thing I'm making him do and start getting annoyed with each other.
So, do you encourage just regular calisthenics?
