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

Full Get Up (Traditional Turkish Get Up)

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 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
