Letting Go of The Past

Letting Go of The Past
“We must be willing to let go of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” –Joseph Campbell


Have you ever found yourself angry, sad, or constantly obsessing about something that happened to you in the past? Feelings from past events that infiltrate into your present moment can be severely toxic. For example, dwelling on how your ex betrayed you and broke your heart can impact your future relationships. You will have a difficult time trusting anyone or being vulnerable with your heart since it was smashed in the past. But by closing that door and letting go of these past experiences, you can experience joy again. 
We all know that changing the past is completely impossible unless we have a time machine. So until a time machine is invented, you have to find a way to stop carrying past events and feelings associated with them around with you.
Sounds so easy, doesn’t it? It truly is easier said than done. One way of having more control of le…

Double Kettlebell Deadlifts

Double Kettlebell deadlifts is an exercise you want to make sure is programmed in to your workouts. This exercise works your glutes, hamstrings, abs and lats. I've programmed this in to both our Be SLAM programs as well as The Kettlebell Body. I highly recommend you learn how to do this safely and start doing them.



The Ultimate Assistant Drill for a Real Push-up or one arm push-ups

Push-ups are very easy to do wrong and can be difficult to do correctly! In 16+ years of training people I've had 1% of women and 10% of men demonstrate a perfect push up on their first day. In fact most people, yes including men, have missing links with their push up. It can take months or even years to get a perfect push up depending on your history and body structure. Especially if you've ever been pregnant, had C-sections, hysterectomies, sit at a desk, or sit in a car. My C-sections destroyed my push ups for awhile and I had to start all over again after watching myself protect my abs while performing a bad push-up. Luckily I don't have this issue anymore but it was an issue for quite some time!

 I've shared push up progression videos in the past which have been very helpful. Check out my first push up progression video out before doing this assistant exercise I'm about to show you. Whether you're unable to keep your core and glutes tight throughout the mo…

How to Lose the Baby Weight

How to Lose the Baby Weight even after a C-section
Congratulations on finally having your baby! I hope the birth went well and you’re beginning to recover. I know how shocking it is to come home with your baby in hand - yet still look six months pregnant. Trust me, I’ve been there, too! 
It’s frustrating walking around looking and feeling pregnant after you’ve already had the baby, plus you’re more exhausted than you ever realized you could be. I remember days where I couldn’t even string words together to make a clear sentence. Taking care of two in diapers was no picnic. I can’t imagine what my friends who have four, or even six, kids dealt with. More power to them! 
So, let’s discuss recovery and how the heck you can lose your baby weight! 
Losing baby weight is no walk in the park. I’m not going to beat around the bush. Seldom will you find a mom who gives birth and the next day she looks as if she never had a baby – though I have seen it on occasion, and I will admit it was hard f…
