Introducing ..... The NO ARM Kettlebell Swing

INTRODUCING..... The NO ARM KETTLEBELL SWING!






 I’m so freakin exciting about this exercise and let me tell you why!!!

1. It’s an incredible teaching tool for people who love to use their arms instead of their hips!
2. Since I’m obsessed with showing people how to work around injuries, this is absolutely perfect for people with a broken hand, recovering from shoulder surgery, tends to use their neck due to using their arms too much, and people who fear that they may hurt their shoulder from swings. This takes the arms out 100%!
3. This is perfect for people who squeeze the crap out of the handle too hard. Some don’t know how to relax their grip. Much of this is due to not trusting their hips! This drill will take care of it!
4. Fast self-correction. If you’re not using your hips and following through correctly with an actual Glute SQUEEZE at the top, the bell ain’t goin’ no where. Okay that’s slang for your kettlebell will have NO POWER.
I created the No Arm Swing after working with every body type their is over the last 16 years. It’s the missing element for many who can’t quite figure out how to get the pendulum effect with their hips.
⚠️ Start with a LIGHT bell and begin with a GENTLE hip thrust. As you get the rhythm you’ll be able to sharpen your thrust to match the load you’ve chosen.
Yes you will feel your glutes activate well. Hope you enjoy this. As always make sure you have the sumo deadlift down pat before moving on to explosive exercises.

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…
