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!

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…

21 Day Squat Challenge - #21DaysOfSquats

Welcome to the 4th annual Squat Challenge! 


**BY POPULAR DEMAND WE ARE DOING THE SQUAT CHALLENGE AGAIN ON FEBRUARY 1ST 2019**




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 here and read the easy rules below! 

Do you plan on doing more than the Squat Challenge? If you want a workout plan... hundreds of people in Lauren's Playground will be doing programs like Upper Body Bliss and the Tushy Toning Transformation in conjunction with the 21 Day Squat Challenge. This year we will have a RESET program that coincides well with the Squat Challenge.…
