    I am about 40 lbs overweight and due to making 3 babies over the last 5 years and 3 csections, I’m am far below peak strength. Just started strength training again 1 year postpartum. I went from a 7 second dead hang to 20 second (one time woth baby strapped to me). I am starting to add shoulder shrugs as well and you taught me how to make my body not swing.

    I see other improvements such as adding negative pushups and having the ability to slowly lower myself and even hold at the end an inch away from the floor before releasing. Thanks for doing what you do. Happy Easter!

    I loved this video! It really inspired me to overcome some of my limiting beliefs around calisthenics, and I think it is so fitting that the name means “beautiful strength”. Thank you so much for all you share and how accessible you make things feel, Lucy! ❤

    Additional note for anyone else watching – I purchased Lucy’s Beginner Calisthenics Ebook after watching this, and I suggest you go for it if you are considering! I am seriously impressed. It’s 77 pages (but easy to read) and is wholistic – speaks to laying out training schedules, how to progress and listen to your body, etc. I’m excited to dive in and feel free to train anywhere and anytime! Thank you ❤
