Good Morning Pedestal Friends & Family!
We have a simple but incredibly effective pairing and it goes like this...
A1) 20 Kettlebell Swings
A2) 10 Push Ups
Repeat for 10 Rounds, or more if you're feeling frisky! You can certainly scale it down with fewer rounds or fewer reps. Either way, just get moving because you won't regret it.
Our friend and legendary kettlebell practitioner Artemis demonstrates a beautiful kettlebell swing in the below video:

Of course, everyone is different. But personally, anytime I’ve trained for a strength goal or gained strength from my training, the scale has always stayed the same. e.g. Since quarantine started here in Vegas 4½ weeks ago, I haven’t been going to spin & yoga classes, obvi. Instead, I’ve increased strength training from 4x/wk to 6x/wk. As a result, last week I noticed that I was getting 𝗠𝗨𝗖𝗛 𝗦𝗧𝗥𝗢𝗡𝗚𝗘𝗥… 💪🏽1H KB swings are at 28kg (62lbs) 💪🏽2H KB swings are at 40kg (88lbs) 💪🏽I’m back to 18kg (40lbs) KB snatches & DBL 18kg (80lbs) KB jerks & DBL swings This AM I weighed 114.5lbs & did 18kg jerks, snatches, & 40kg swings in my training (shown in this video👆🏽). AND, if the muscle & strength you gain is reflected on the scale, 𝗪𝗛𝗢 𝗖𝗔𝗥𝗘𝗦, because you’re 𝗦𝗧𝗥𝗢𝗡𝗚𝗘𝗥 & 𝗧𝗛𝗔𝗧 friends, is priceless. 2️⃣Since pivoting my biz focus this year from strength, nutrition, & hormone balance coaching to biz coaching for FitPros, I’ve lost followers (down to 11.2k from 11.4k) 😱& email subscribers. I’ve gained followers as well, but I’m not gaining them as quickly as I’m losing them. It can be disconcerting at first, but rather than focus on lost followers, I focus on how I 𝗙𝗘𝗘𝗟 from within since making this pivot, because 𝗧𝗛𝗔𝗧’𝗦 what matters. At this point in my life, at 44yrs 4mos old, & in my career with 17yrs in the fitness biz, I feel more 𝗳𝘂𝗹𝗳𝗶𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗱 & 𝗮𝗹𝗶𝗴𝗻𝗲𝗱 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝗻 𝗘𝗩𝗘𝗥 helping FitPros build their online biz - 𝗘𝗦𝗣𝗘𝗖𝗜𝗔𝗟𝗟𝗬 amidst the current pandemic. With that, it does not serve me to worry about lost followers, or those who judge me for making this pivot. Instead I focus on serving those who support me & need my help. The quarantine has made me literally & figuratively stronger (& hairier🤦🏻♀️). Cr
Thank you for always ditching your shoes and get after it!
