Happy Thanksgiving Fat Blast Workout #2 (Under 20 minutes)

Video is now up.  Here is the simple, yet very effective fat burning workout also written out for you.  Expect to burn up to 20 calories per minute!  This workout is NOT designed to teach.  Be sure you have the proper kettlebell technique down before performing any online workouts.  Perform at your own risk!!

If you are just learning how to jump rope or are not good at it, this is the perfect way to start.  Jumping rope is a very efficient way to increase your metabolism, build stamina, and condition your whole body.  You can start as slow as you need to.  For those who are experienced practice speed jumping as fast as possible and/or even perform double unders during the short duration of work.  If you do not have a jump rope yet, you may do Jump Squats with or without your suspension trainer for a modification.  I personally like the ultra speed cable ropes from

Hey Lauren! Thanks so much for this workout! I check your page pretty are so inspiring. I have a 2 yo daughter and am currently 27 weeks pregnant with daughter #2! I love kettlebells and bodyweight routines. I just saw your buggybellz page and this is such a great idea. As I get closer to my delivery date (2/26/11), I have been thinking about starting this type of class at my gym. There are a few of us who have little ones and love KBs. Are you selling this program to others?

Hi Lisa,

Thank you!! Congratulations on your 2nd pregnancy. I love having two girls. Sisters are so cute. ;-)

Yes you should definitely start a BuggyBellz class in your area. We are in the process of selling this to others. Email me if you'd like to discuss the possibility further. Hope your pregnancy is doing well. My 2nd daugther was born 2/17. So yours might have the same bday. Talk to you soon!

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
