brutestrength Uncategorized

It’s that time of the year again. The time of year where our fitness takes a back seat to our family obligations, travel plans, and all the other stresses that come with the holiday season.

Yoga for the Athlete

8 Exercises to Avoid as a Pregnant Athlete

Kat Hatchet Uncategorized

It’s time to debunk the fact from the fiction about what REALLY are the high-intensity functional exercises you shouldn’t do during pregnancy, and WHY. 1. EXERCISES FOR TIME This is no longer a race. Don’t be tempted to ever choose intensity over the integrity of movement. You’re now working out with different principles in mind. My feeling is as most of us haven’t got a lot of experience exercising whilst pregnant, most of us can’t be absolutely certain we aren’t …

4 Things I Wish I Knew When I Got Pregnant

Kat Hatchet Uncategorized

You’re a fit mama, or mama-to-be. You know your dumbbell from your kettlebell and the idea of running a 5km has never scared you, a 10km even. Perhaps you’ve tried a triathlon, or perhaps you love thrashing it out in CrossFit and enjoy this kind of intensity regularly. The fact of the matter is – when you fell pregnant, you were athletic, fit, and strong. Let me take a guess that you’re quite competitive and driven too. You’re used to …
