Another little quickie


I'm all all fired up this morning because I am headed to the mountains this evening. That's right, it's snowboard season.  This is what I use to LIVE for. If I didn't have a baby right now I would have hit the slopes the second the mountain opened. Ben and I will be going up there with Lyla. So we will have to take turns taking runs. So with all my excited energy I wanted to get in a quickie workout before getting in the car heading to slopes.

Here it goes!

2 Handed Swings 12kg 40x
Alternating Swings 12kg 42x

Double Cleans 12kg's  10x
Dead Double Cleans 12kg's 10x (tough)

High Pull Catch and Squat with a Burpee  12kg 10x

Double Snatches  8kg's  15x
Double Snatches 8kg's   18x

1 Arm Push ups 2 per side
Ab wheel roll out  10x

Stretches with baby and done!  
Last season I had just had Lyla and there was barely any snow left. Remember I'm in southern cali.  Here is a pic of me hitting the slopes as soon as doctors gave me clearance since I had a C-section. I got 2 hours total in for the whole season.  8-(    Yay for today!!!

We're in Nor Cal and heading up to Boreal for snowboarding tomorrow. The snow isn't great, but there's enough for me, my husband, and my boys to have a great time for the day!

Hope you had a fabulous time!

Leslie,

Nice! I'm sure you will have a fabulous time. Heard Mammoth has some good snow right now. I will try and make a trip to Mammoth at least once this year. Never heard of Boreal, is that near Tahoe?

Howie,

Thank you. It's weird though. When I do them my back cracks big time. They are definitely challenging. I think I just need to do some GTG with them so it will be more fluid.

Awesome pic! Sounds like you really want to get out there and shred it up!

Hope you had fun!

Franz,

Thank you! I feel so much better now that I got some riding out of my system. It was fun but short!

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 again.  I d…

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 unlikely.  Through h…
