The Clean Slate Day 23

Another day, another kettlebell butt-kicking. Neghar Fonooni does not fool around. Day 23 kicked off my fourth week of Lean and Lovely Kettlebell programming.

My husband and I have definitely been noticing some increased strength and stability. For me, coming from barbell lifts, I’ve noticed the stability a lot more than the strength. I’ve been noticing a lot more core strength and some better definition in my abs. I’ve also noted a lot more soreness in my butt muscles which is good! I’m working parts of my posterior chain that (I assume) were neglected with my barbell deadlifts and squats. It’s cool because I’m actually lifting less weight but experiencing gains in overall performance. Thanks Neghar!

Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
