Calling All My Squat Haters

Would you say you're the kind of person that is allergic to just hearing the word "Squat"? Or are you jumping  up for joy excited to get your Squat on?

No matter which kind of "squatter" you are, you should know the ideal squat will look different on each individual and at different times of their life.

Some people view squats as the ultimate booty lifter and strengthener. While some look at it as an insurance policy to make sure they can continue to get on and off the toilet, without calling for help.

Whichever reason you choose to show up and squat, I get it is a personal decision.

I think we can all agree that when squatting CORRECTLY and PAIN FREE, they can be a very helpful addition to any fitness program and any aging body.

If you WANT to squat, but feel like you CAN'T because of various pains in your either during or after squatting or just all the time, you will want to take a look at these 2 very short video clips I made for you.

If you ROCK at squats, and you want to continue to improve them, then stay tuned for some upleveled tips. 

In the mean time, I'm calling my Squat Haters, Cranky Knee, Hips, and Back peeps to view these simple options on how to begin your journey in to toilet independence insurance.

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.

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
