In the mean time, for my advanced push-up students, give this push-up variation a whirl. Let me know what you think! 

Sooo I tried a new push up variation this week. 😬 It felt really good! I believe this one is called “Russian Push Ups”. 

It’s one of the many progressions toward the bigger goal I’m finally seriously working towards.

Many of you, who’ve been hanging out with me for awhile, know I’m working towards a big goal. Hello there and welcome if you’re new! 🥰🥰

It’s true, I’ve been told by some, it would be almost too difficult to get to, without getting injured. These words exactly “Because you’re almost 40, you’ve had a few C-sections, and you are NOT a gymnast, it may be next to impossible for you to get the strict ring muscle up. You just don’t have the structure.” 

Let’s see if they’re right.  

In the meantime I’m still working towards it. My body is feeling better than it has in years. Zero pain. 💃🏻🤗

Do you have a goal that many may feel is next to impossible for you to reach, but you’re going for it anyway?

Now picture this! Picture yourself achieving your goal. Even if it’s 1year or 5 years away. You’ll never know until you seriously TRY and GO FOR IT. Go big or go home is my motto! 

Please share with me a big goal! Make it real! Start with small baby steps. You’ve got this baby!

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
