Sqeezing in a quick workout. WIll try and do another one this evening before I train some clients.

Double Snatches 2 8kgs 10
Back Lunges 2 8kg's 10 L & R
Double Snatches 2 8 kg's 10
Repeated whole thing 4 times

My heart rate was up there. I tried to keep the rests under 30 seconds.
This morning weight is 110 pounds!

Last night one of my clients was 10 minutes late so this is what I decided to try and do. I need to do this more often because I was surprised I was able to do this at all!

Pull-ups 2 reps (woo hoo)
Pistols 2 reps on each leg (stoked)
Push-ups on KB's with one leg 6 reps on each leg

Repeated 3 times

YAY! for pull-ups and pistols! They're what I was talking about when I said (in an older blog) that my training is not very exciting. :p Those and deadlifts are ALWAYS apart of the program :)

In my little world that is very exciting. To most of my clients I'm sure it would get old very fast. But when those reps start getting higher or the weight goes up, that is all I need to keep it fun! I agree, YAY for pull-ups and pistols!!!

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me. WELCOME! First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. 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

Let's Talk About Butts (Butt "on" Workouts)

To lift or not to lift, that is the question.  Despite the popular sayings, "Strong is the new Skinny" or "Strong is the New Sexy," there is still a large portion of the female population that will shy away from lifting solely due to their fear of bulking up or building too much muscle.  I'm not going to tell you that heavy weights won't help build muscle and I'm not going to deny the fact that some women can build muscle easier than others.   Let's start with the photo below.  This is a nice example of the female backside that shows two different body types.  The woman on the left falls in the category of an ectomorph, which generally means skinny, little muscle, and a very high metabolism.  She could probably eat what she wants and stay skinny.  If she committed to a butt strengthening and enhancing program, filled with exercises such as squats, deadlifts, and kettlebell swings , developing the butt on the right would still be unlike
