Super Strong and Effective Workout


I thought I'd share a workout that my super strong kick ass class did this week.  It was a beautiful day outside here in Encinitas at around 68 degrees.  This was the class design.  Feel free to give this a shot. 

Part 1:
Partner you go I go.  Go through each exercise back and forth with your partner.  First round you will do 2 reps of each then your partner will go, then 4 reps of each then your partner, 6, 8, and finally 10! 
2 Kettlebells needed. 

Push Ups on Bells

Double Front Squats

Double High Pulls

Double or Single Stationary Lunges

While your partner is working you are lightly stretching your hip flexors, glutes, or chest in between.  Reps 2,4,6,8,10.  Your partner is really there to pace yourself. If you try this alone take rests as needed so you can go in fresh. Let me know how you do.

Part 2:

Pull - Ups or Rows 75%

Planks - 30 seconds

Snatches  5,4,3,2,1

Repeat 2-3x

Many of my ladies were snatching 20kg's with ease.  Katie Dawers at only 123 pounds was using DOUBLE 20 KG'S throughout the majority of Part 1.   Very proud of my whole class!  More and more strong ladies are disproving the get big and bulkier theory when using heavy weights.  I have the tiniest girls using the heaviest bells.  Come on people let's wake up and start lifting heavy sh#t! (properly of course with good structural integrity)

Tell me how you do with this workout!

Looks like a great workout! I think I may go out and buy a second bell just so I can do it :)

Lauren,

Thanks for the new workout. I started out thinking two times through but only made it once. I should have known better:)

This was a fun workout! Surprisingly challenging and I like the entire routine! Thanks for sharing. Question for you... When you say repeat 2-3 times is this the part 2 section only or the entire workout? For some reason the 5,4,3,2,1 next to snatches isn't making sense to me. I assume it is reps, but if we repeat 2-3 times this doesn't make sense. Please clarify for my tired brain :) thanks again!

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
