How to Get Your First Push-Up!

What’s up, Achievers?! We got a ton of great feedback from our "Get Your First Pull-Up" episode that we decided to create one for the push-up as well! You'll find a ton of underlying common themes from training for your first pull-up to training for your first push-up; however, we do deep dive on specific technique you'll want to adopt for push-ups. A sample program might looking something like this if you were training push-ups 3 times per week: * Week 1: 3 sets of 8 * Week 2: 3 sets of 9 * Week 3: 3 sets of 10 * Week 4: option to drop down the incline by a couple inches and do 3 sets of 8, or stay at the same height and do 4 sets of 8! You can follow that progression until the incline you're using is around knee height. From there you'll want to practice: 1) Push Up to an Elevated Surface 2) Kneeling Push-Ups Just alternate between those two movements and get 3-4 sets of Grease the Groove (leave 2 reps in the tank). Each week, try to add a rep or even a set. For even faster results, we think it would be a great idea to follow a total body strength training program like [RISE](https://shop.achievefitnessonline.com/products/rise-program) that also incorporates compound movements as well as chest pressing and core work!

Organizing Your Workouts in a Sustainable Way!

What’s up, Achievers?! Jason and Lauren here and today we're discussing how you would organize a week of workouts for those of you who like to partake in activities like yoga/mobility work/running/walking/hiking/etc! The key variables we're looking at are: 1) Figuring out what your availability is 2) Understanding which buckets your activities fall into: high strain or low strain 3) Trying not do exceed high strain activities for more than 4 days per week unless your hydration, sleep, nutrition, stress management are extremely on point and trying to not do 3 high strain days in a row. But, of course, this is all general advice that should be taken with a grain of salt, but we hope it gives you something to work off of! We hope you enjoyed this episode!
