Champion barrel racer Jo Caldwell couldn’t be more excited to return to the Mount Isa rodeo arena. And this time she’s bringing her children, Austin, five, and Georgia, six.

Following in their parents’ footsteps – dad Tony, 39, is an Australian saddle bronc champion – the kids will be making their debut in the junior barrel race.

“They’re really excited,” Jo tells Woman’s Day from her property in Blandford, NSW, where the family business is horse breeding. “They’d watched me compete for so long it was a natural progression.”

Sharing a love of rodeo with her kids has been fun for Jo, 44, who fell in love with the sport as a child. After years on the sidelines watching her brother compete, Jo got to jump into the rodeo saddle for the first time in 2004 and she hasn’t looked back.

THE POWER CLEAN (Discover this dirty little secret for better functional fitness.)

OLYMPIC LIFTS ARE A VALUABLE TOOL FOR IMPROVING STRENGTH and athletic performance — and as a side bonus, they also help develop crazy-good muscle shape, size, and definition. In fact, one could argue that the power-clean portion of the clean-and-jerk is the best exercise ever devised. “The clean is a functional movement used [routinely] in everyday activities,” says Aaron Viscounte, CSCS, head coach and manager at Summer’s Fitness Inc. in North Canton, Ohio. “We use aspects of the clean to pick up a box and put it on a shelf, move furniture or even go grocery shopping.” During a power clean, the barbell travels from the floor to the “racked” position at shoulder level and back down again. We tapped some elite trainers for their step-by-step expert advice on making the most of every rep.
