“I find the Turkish Get Up to be meditative as well as physically challenging. It forces me to slow down my breath, raise the consciousness of my body, and believe in myself. It also helps me notice what parts of my body need more attention for strength-building. I actually like the descent of the TGU best, as I really turn inward while slowwwwly laying back down flat. That last motion, from elbow to shoulder, is something I'm currently working on improving.​ H. Lapidus 

“I have found the TGU to be an amazing exercise for getting my mind and body working together. There are so many working parts going on that the synergism of each muscle and the brain is paramount. Love it!”​ P. Wood

“Years ago when a lifter, sought out to be taught by the “old time “ masters of strength, the master would first have the student train with TGU’s. Even back then they knew the benefits acquired by performing a technically sound TGU. It applies stress to the body in all the planes (sagittal, frontal, transverse)
It works not only qualities of strength, but also stability, mobility, joint integrity, and kinetic awareness. There is also an offset load component by holding the load in one hand, which really fires up the nervous system. Real important in Real Life. And think about it, if we can get off the floor with a good size kettlebell in one hand, how much easier it will be to get off the floor when we get older. Especially when you’ve coached some seventy- and eighty-year-olds to get off the floor themselves. That’s freedom.

Get Ups help my grip, my upper back, glutes and obliques. I make sure to do them at least four times a week. I remember, Lauren, that you spoke several years ago about how when you first started with kettlebells you could not do a TGU even though you were physically fit. At age 51, I want to be able to get up from the floor easily, and I can, in large part, because of TGUs. They help me to keep my torso stable when sitting and walking and because my grip is strong, I can carry things pretty easily.” @hamorah67

"Just did Week 1, workout 1 of the new Getup program and wow, I needed that!!! I never fully got my lat to engage while the kb is overhead until today going through the #3 and #4 Getup exercises. Something about the cues and seeing Lauren engage her lat finally broke through and wow, what a difference that makes! I've never gone heavy with getups but I think I will be able to if I make it through this program. Will be continuing with this program for sure!" M. Collins

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

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 unlike
