Why I Keep Going Back To The Kettlebell

My first foray into working out was inside a traditional gym. There were machines and resistance equipment. I was fascinated with learning how to set up each strength machine perfectly while designing just the right program to achieve the physique I was striving for. I always felt good with the conventional programs. I had scheduled days such as Chest/Triceps, Back/Biceps, Legs/abs along with cardio. Old school, like 25 years ago! As long as I stuck to my program I felt good. I was actually scared to deviate. I thought I was strong until I discovered Kettlebell training. I was humbled learning how disconnected my body really was. The first time I did a Get Up 15 years ago, I could barely get off the ground with 8lbs in my hand. Pull ups and real squats were a joke. I was under the illusion that I was in amazing shape, until discovering the Kettlebell philosophy. It was a downer realizing my body didn’t know how to work together as one unit after all the

The Damage of Telling a Kid to "MAN UP"

To The Adults Who Tell Their Boys To “MAN UP!” “Man Up!” she said to her son. Her son has been showing signs of anxiety come Monday morning when it was time to go to school. What she doesn’t know is that her son has been a victim of bullying for the last year. Due to the “man up” mentality, her son hasn’t felt comfortable sharing his experiences with his mom or anyone.  Dear Parents or any adult who cares for kids,   At some point someone may have told you to “man up”, or “stop acting like a girl". Maybe it was because you fell really hard on the playground or you cried because you lost a game. Maybe it was because you were made fun of by a group of kids and felt like an outcast, so you cried. Whatever it may have been, the unforeseen consequences of telling someone to "man up", can cause a negative residual effect, that can last a lifetime.  If you want your boys to grow up in a world where he can’t express his feelings, instead learn to suppress his

Are You Setting Yourself Up For Success?

View this post on Instagram I believe in order to be successful you must emphasize setting yourself up to be. Most times success doesn’t happen by accident. It’s something that takes focus, hard work, planning and sacrifice. # I put a lot of energy and time in to setting up for each movement such as the Kettlebell Swing. I take set up very seriously! If I just hike the bell back without spending time on rooting my feet to the floor, driving my hips back to where they need to be, and so forth, the success output on this exercise will be low and chances of failing or injury are higher. If you set yourself up correctly and plan accordingly, chances of being rewarded are high. # Today’s mantra: Believe you can do it and then set yourself up for optimal success. #mondaymotivation #goals #success #kettlebell #kettlebellswings #kettlebellkings #kettlebellworkout #laurensplayground #laurenbrooksfitness Photo by @mellenpatch Kettlebell from

How Squats and training bring Republicans and Democrats together

Our country may be extremely divided, but something I get to witness daily are Democrats and Republicans Squatting together. Yep and they don’t even fight. They squat together with love and respect. Some for 10+ years and then they go have coffee together afterwards. Maybe more people just need to train together so we can bridge this HUGE gap of divisiveness! Can we all agree on something? Squatting is amazing and helps with mobility, strength and improves the quality of life. Personally, I find that hanging out in the bottom of the squat position feels like heaven. Please don’t stop squatting or choose not to learn due age or some theory that squats are bad. The only squats that are bad are bad squats or the ones you’re not doing!  View this post on Instagram Our country may be extremely divided, but something I get to witness daily are Democrats and Republicans Squatting together. Yep and they don’t even fight. Th
