Old Girl

My name is Adele and I am 32. I live in Greater Manchester in the UK with my 10 year old daughter, Hannah, my partner Andy, a cat called Penny and a crazy dog called Kipper. After years of heavy weights I have made the move in to training almost exclusively with kettlebells. I am fairly heavily tattooed. I have an amazing family and boyfriend. On the whole I am happy.

This will be my workouts for the next 6-8 weeks. Heavy weights are killing my lower back (I have a back injury that will probably never get better)
I will warm up with low rep pull ups/push ups and will also include goblet squats, heavy swings and strict press.
I haven’t posted in quite a long time, but recent achievements are getting 7 consecutive wide grip pull ups, 16kg strict press for 2, 6x25 28kg kettlebell swings and I can do a forward bend with my palms touching the floor :) gotta keep on pushing forward.
I have also noticed that with heavy weights my recovery time is getting longer and my energy levels are low.
I chose this plan because kettlebells are always fun, it had a set goal and progression, plus if I can do this plan then there is no reason I can’t do a kettlebell competition.
The link to this training plan generator is at the top of the pics

“I’m posting this because you guys ask me what happened to my stretch marks and loose skin from my 2 beautiful boys (one standing behind me). Well surprise they are still there… You just don’t ever see me sitting relaxed like this. Do I like it? Well no, but I don’t allow it to be an excuse to let myself go or stop being healthy. Let go of your insecurities and #findbeautyinstrength I started out in the fitness industry so scared because I thought I had a flaw and I wouldn’t be able to achieve my goals. I am successful and I have made a name for myself in the industry, but I am nowhere near perfect. I am no different from you. And now that I have a voice in the industry I will tell you that it’s okay; doesn’t matter so get over it. I posted this earlier in my private face book group page, (everyone who is doing one of the BE trainers; over 4K members and growing) incredible group! www.ashleyhorner.co #ashleyhorner #ashletes #beautyinstrength #becomingviral #horner”

I find these striking.

why are women’s bodies so sexualized that they can’t even FEED A CHILD

In the UK, it is illegal for an establishment to treat a breast feeding woman differently to any other customer or ask her to leave/stop. Prejudice against breast feeding is recognised as discrimination and any establishment found guilty of it faces a hefty fine. This includes restaurants, leisure centres and swimming pools… literally anywhere, even in the park.
