50 Pull Ups on Kari's 49th Birthday

Kari Miller didn't achieve her first pull up until she was in her early 40's. In fact she was sick almost her entire 30's. In between having kids and being in bed from a sickness her doctors couldn't figure out, she was frail and weak. It wasn't until she figured out that her body didn't digest gluten well and it was the main cause of her severe illness. Causing her to miss important events and miss out on life. Once she could stand up straight again she began training with Lauren Brooks in person using Kettlebell fitness and various strength training protocols. This resulted in her achieving her first pull up at 42. Then by 43 was able to do 6 pull ups.

Kari has requested to celebrate her birthday in pull up reps. It's been an honor to see her commitment to showing up to live classes 3 times per week. Kari has never felt stronger and more confident in her whole life. She credits the programming and instruction with kettlebell strength training for helping her reach her dream goals.

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
