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 movement, suffer from neck pain, low back pain, shoulder or elbow pain, taking your time with any push up progression is paramount. I'm going to share my all time new favorite assistant drill. Not only is it my new favorite but my clients are excited when they see push ups on the board now. Their push ups have doubled in results and I'm getting many more smiling faces since this specific progress. Ladies are making break throughs to a true real push up after practicing this assistant exercise. You're welcome!





p.s. This also works excellent for the advanced student that wants to do one arm push ups eventually!

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
