21 Day Get Up Challenge - New Challenge


Due to popular demand and great success with the last challenge, I present you the Get Up Challenge. If you are interested in checking out any of our other popular challenges visit the Lauren Brooks Challenge tab to view all of our free challenges. 



SUGGESTIONS: (read the above image) then 

1. Pick the appropriate progression for you. 

Beginners: Half Get Up or Bodyweight Get Up
Intermediate/Advanced: Light weight to start the challenge.

2. Ease your way in to the challenge. Each day you are asked to perform 5 reps each side. This can be done in several ways.

          Option 1. Spread your reps throughout the day
          Option 2. Keep your reps closer together and sneak them in your warm up and in your pre-workout sections.
          Option 3. Get them all done at once.

NOTE: never let your quality go down. Spread them out or use the appropriate weight to keep the form impeccable.  

3.  Make sure to watch the videos below to choose the best Get Up option and lesson to ensure proper form and technique. 

Get Up Video Play List will also teach you the proper steps on achieving a solid and SAFE Get Up

Get Up Styles and Variations to choose from that work best for YOUR LEVEL AND BODY TYPE





Get Up to the Tall Sit (recommended for beginners)


Full Get Up (Traditional Turkish Get Up)
Part 1 - 4





Get Up for "Shoulder/Thoracic Mobility Restrictions"


Modified Get Up (great for sensitive knees)

Hashtag #GetUpFor21days so we can find you every time you share with us that you did your Get Ups. Post descriptions, photos, and/or videos!

You can also ask to join our free Lauren Brooks Fitness Challenge group right here where we have 1700+ people doing the challenges with you!




On a personal note you can achieve a very strong Get Up when you put your mind to it. Weighing between 112lbs to 116lbs I was able to use the 24kg (53lb) and 28kg (62lb) with ease. I tell you this not to brag, but to show you what is possible. Videos below. Form is a bit different from the Get Up from 9 years ago.

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…

Welcome to the 5th Annual Squat Challenge! 

Updated for JANUARY 1, 2020







**We are SWITCHING things up this year**




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 completely FREE here and read the easy rules below on how to win one year free access to Lauren's Playground.
