Suspension Training and Kettlebell Workout Video

Here is a workout integrating TRX cables and a few kettlebell exercises. This is just a quick introduction to what you can do with them. There are endless amounts of things you can do and this is just a quick balanced workout. TRX training system is a perfect component to kettlebell training! You can also use Rings and the Jungle Gym as well for this particular workout.

I have had a few questions about mounting them. You can buy one with a door anchor that can be used on most doors in the house. So you can turn any room in to your gym. You can also buy a ceiling anchor to put it up or you can hang them from an outside beam if you have one. The door anchor is the most popular for indoor home gyms.

What sort of mat are you using there?

I've been looking for one about that size that I can use on a wood floor in my apartment and that will protect the floor from KBs should I drop them.

Thanks.

Jason,

I put some heavy duty rubber flooring in my garage. There were some left over pieces and I use them for mats outside. That mat probably weighs 50 pounds. I love it. You need to go to a rubber flooring place and they can probably get you a large roll of it and cut it if you want ones that strong.

I have dropped the bells on it a few times and it barely makes a dent on the mat.

What type of TRX do you have?

Hey Christine,

I have both the old TRX without the lock in loop and the new version. Which they now upgraded in all of the packages. The TRX suspension or home training bundle both work great. Just depends if you need a door anchor or not.

Jason, we found that horse stall mats from a ranch supply business work great, about $40 bucks for a 4x6 mat. Very heavy though...

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…

21 Day Squat Challenge - #21DaysOfSquats

Welcome to the 4th annual Squat Challenge!

Why Squat? Squats are one of the most beneficial exercises to practice. I could sit here and tell you how squatting makes you stronger, more conditioned, firms your legs and butt, improves digestion, increases energy and mood, but I'm sure you know the endless amount of benefits. A few people who've participated in the past squat challenges chose to share their experiences which I've shared below.

 So let's just get to squatting! Beginners are welcomed! Join our Challenge Today here and read the easy rules below!
