Carolyn's workout

Today I did a workout with my friend Carolyn outside in front of her house. She has become so strong over this past year. She was doing snatches with the 20kg. I was very impressed. Of course I stuck with my 8kg throughout the workout, except for the Renegade Rows. But I did it with a smile. 8-)

Here is the workout

Warm Up
Sling shot both directions 1 minute
Two Handed Swings 1 minute

Push Ups on Kettlebells 4 seconds down on the negative 4 times
Swing, Catch, Squats 10 times

5 presses to 5 back lunges on each side
Renegade Rows 3 times
Burpees 1 minute ( only made it for 45 seconds)

Alternating Snatches for 1 minute
Janda Sit-Ups

I think between 125 and 130. Her form looked really good as well. She is hoping to be able to snatch the 24kg soon.

Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today! Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core aga
