Why Every Woman Should Be Doing Pull-ups

"I never thought at age 43, I would be strong enough to be able to do even one pull-up, let alone six."

Today is Kari Miller's 43rd birthday!  I felt it was time to highlight Kari, 43 yr old mom of 2, success in achieving her pull-up goal. Kari's determination and dedication has been infectious to our entire group.  She's a beautiful woman inside and out and we truly love her.  

Here is Kari's Story:

I started my kettlebell journey with Lauren Brooks last December.  I went to Lauren because I wanted to take my training to the next level.  I didn’t just want to be kettlebell strong,  I wanted to be Lauren Brooks strong.

I witnessed just how strong Lauren is when she did a set of pull-ups (too many to count) during a Friday group session.  I decided that day I wanted to be strong enough to do just one.

I started using the assistance band in class to help me with my pull-ups.  With the strength I was gaining from attending Lauren's classes three times a week and consistently working on pull-ups, Lauren suggested I try a pull-up without a band.  I tried and I did my first pull-up.  I was so excited and I became obsessed with wanting to do more.  Lucky for me my husband had installed a pull-up bar in the house a few years back. I was doing pull-ups at home and in class.  The one turned into two, the two turned into four and the four turned into six.  I am now working on chin-ups, pulls-ups, mix grips and weighted pull-ups.  My ultimate goal is to be able to do ten in a row with any grip I choose.

I never thought at age 43, I would be strong enough to be able to do even one pull-up, let alone six.  It's a huge testament to Lauren and her strength training programs!
Thank you so much Lauren!!
