Feeling a bit under the weather workout

The past several weeks I have been surrounded by 2 friends with Bronchitis and a client getting over Bronchitis. I have been lucky to have a great immune system and normally don't get sick. If I am not sleeping very well, I am bound to lower my immune system, no matter how healthy I am eating. So with that being said, I picked up a nasty cough and have been fighting it for over a week. This bronchial cough has taken even more sleep away from me. It has been hard to find the energy for a good workout. It has also been disgustingly hot here in San Diego, and I don't have air conditioning! Today I made myself do a 30 minute workout. I kept the reps low but the weight high.

Warm Up Set 1

Pistols holding 8lb medicine ball 1/1
One arm Push-ups on 18 inch box 3/3
Turkish Get Up 16kg 2/2
Snatches 12kg 15/15

Rested 90 seconds

Set 2
Pistols with 8lb medicine ball 2/2
1 arm Push-ups on 18inch box 3/3
Turkish Get Up 16kg 2/2
Snatches 16kg 6/6

Set 3
Pistols with 8lb medicine ball 3/3
1 arm Push-ups on 24 inch box 5/5
Turkish Get ups 16kg 2/2
Snatches 16kg 10/10

Last bit!
Swings 32kg 8 reps
Double Snatches 12kg's 5 reps
Cleans 24kg 2/2

One of my goals is to be able to snatch the 20kg safely. I have not tried it yet. I just want to make sure I am feeling very comfortable with double snatches before trying the 20kg.

I don't have any doubt that you can Snatch the 20kg Kettlebell :)

I hope you feel better soon!

Thanks Yoana! I am just building up the confidence to try it. Maybe in the next couple days I will just go for it!

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

5 Year Blog Anniversary and Giveaway

My blog was born March 10th of 2007, 5 years ago, with this  post  that started it all.  It all started 6 weeks after giving birth to my first baby.  The purpose of this blog was to share my journey of embarking as a new mother recovering from a C-section, lost strength, and fitness.  I wanted to share my struggles and perseverance in getting back to my pre-pregnancy self all while enjoying my new road in to motherhood.  I felt this was an easy and convenient way for friends and family that live all over the world, to see photos of my children and updates about our life.  What an amazing experience it  has been for me.  I never thought blogging my experiences would turn in to so much more.  Through my blogging I got the chance to connect with so many wonderful people around the world.  I never fully understood how powerful the stories would effect so many people.   It's truly been an honor.  Being able to continue to drive motivation and hope in to someones life by sharing my life
