Girls Gone Strong

Girls Gone Strong is the world's best resource for women’s health, wellness, nutrition, training, and lifestyle information. But more than that, we are a force to be reckoned with that’s fighting back against the multi-billion dollar weight loss industry and mainstream media who try to convince us to be LESS instead of MORE. …who try to box us into a cookie-cutter look, style, size, and shape. …who put women on blast picking apart their every body part, fashion, and lifestyle choice. …who say strong women look like men. …whose sole purpose is to convince us that we are too short, too tall, too fat, too thin, too strong, too weak, too emotional, too bitchy, too aggressive, too manly, too feminine, too slutty, too prudish, too loud, too big, too different, too basic, too smart, too dumb… We believe in autonomy, in providing great information to help you reach your personal goals (whatever they may be), in sisterhood, and in shining brightly so that we may give our sisters permission to shine brightly, too. We believe that there’s no one “right” way to have a body, and we love to display fit, strong, and beautiful women of all shapes, sizes, ages, ability levels, and athletic backgrounds on our site. We have an Advisory Board of 9 women, all world-class experts in their respective fields who have come together for one common purpose — to provide evidence-based, body-positive information to women, and use a united voice to fight back against the fluff and the fear-mongering the mainstream media uses to prey on your insecurities and sell you something you don’t need. Instead, we pride ourselves on offering real-life solutions to help you reach your goals in a realistic and compassionate way. We understand that women want to change their bodies — the way they look, the way they feel, the way they perform — but we also believe you must understand that you are enough as you are right this moment.

[Find Your Flow How To Get Started With Yoga]

MYTH: You can be “good” at yoga. Or “bad,” for that matter.

Contrary to what you may see on social media, yoga—true yoga—is not about achieving the perfect pose. Yoga is a practice and (guess what?) the physical aspect only makes up one-eighth of that practice.

Jen Comas explains what it’s really about, and walks you through how to get started (including a video you can follow at home!)

[Returning To Exercise After C-Section]

"Don't lift anything, drive, or exercise for 6 weeks, and you'll be fine."

^^^ This old-school advice regarding "recovering" from a c-section just isn't going to cut it anymore. Just because c-sections are common, doesn't mean that they aren't a major abdominal surgery, and it doesn't mean they don't require some special attention and exercises to ensure proper healing. If you had knee surgery, you'd do physical therapy before returning to exercise, right?

Read on to learn exactly what our pre and postnatal expert Jessie Mundell says you should do after a c-section in order to return to exercise safely.
