#AskAchieve 108: Improving Lunge Stability, Transitioning from Traditional Strength Training to Powerlifting and Olympic Lifting, and How to Utilize Progressive Overload in Your Programs!
What's up, Achievers?! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
In the first question, we talk about a couple ways to improve stability when you lunge. The key concepts are to reduce range of motion, make the exercise less dynamic, and utilize various forms of assistance (4:59).
Next, we delved into how to transition from traditional strength exercises like lunges and dumbbell work, and move to more advanced exercises like barbell work like the powerlifts and olympic lifts (10:28).
Lastly, we covered how to progressively overload "the right way". There is no "right way" - just the right way for a specific person at that specific moment in time so we discussed some broad principles here that hopefully you can glean some information from (18:14)!
We hope you enjoyed this episode! If you did, we’d love you forever if you left a rating and review on iTunes - it seriously helps us out a lot! Please DM us @achievefitnessboston on Instagram if you have any questions you’d like us to answer. Until next time, Peace, Love, and Muscles!
