Show Notes

What's up, Achievers?! This one was fun one, because we talked a little bit about our origin story - where we got our start as fitness coaches and how we transitioned to being gym owners and opening up Achieve. We expand on our mission and how it has evolved up until this point (2:48). We also cover our thoughts on whether or not wrist wraps and weight belts are good to use, and whether there's a time and a place for them (18:09). Lastly, we talk about how to keep your elbows locked out during overhead movements like Turkish Get Ups, overhead presses, and windmills, and how it might not be a true issue at your elbow (23:15). 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! Jason and Lauren

In the first question, we discuss strategies for someone who has a tough time counteracting lower back arching during exercises like squats and deadlifts (4:42). We also talk about how to recover from a hernia surgery. We go over this in our answer, but if you're experiencing hernia-like symptoms - make sure to go get checked out by a doctor and physical therapist!
