Show Notes

What's up, Achievers?! We missed you all! It's been a whole week since we've last connected! :( Lot of fun questions in this one! We first started with how to modify someone's workouts program in order to break past a plateau. A couple episodes ago, we discussed things from a more general and nutrition standpoint and this time we dug a little bit deeper into the exercise side of things (2:27). The, we talked about what we thought about fasted workouts, and how science is important, but your personal preference should be prioritized! (9:16). Lastly, we discuss some of the strategies and mindset we use in order to cultivate the community and culture that we have at Achieve (13:41). This one was a really fun one to talk about and answer as our enthuasiasm may suggest! 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!

#AskAchieve 34: Training Through Pregnancy, Bulgarian Split Squats, Muscles Knots/Adhesions, and a Special Announcement!

What's up, Achievers?! Soooooo, Lauren is 13.5 weeks pregnant! We're super excited to finally share the news with you all - 3+ months is a loooong way to go without telling anyone some of the biggest news of your life! Anyways, we announced the news on social media today and of course one of the first questions we received was about how to train through pregnancy (2:36)! We actually had an episode previously (episode 3!) that really delved into the specifics and you can find that here: [https://achievingfitness.podiant.co/e/359a28c4cc9e1c/](http://) However, we touched a little bit more on the mental side of things and think both episodes should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect when training through a pregnancy! We also talked about Bulgarian or Rear Foot Elevated Split Squats and what to do if you're cramping in your back leg (11:52). We also cover what muscle knots/adhesions are, where they come from, and how to get rid of them (14:19). Finally, we recommend our favorite fitness and business books (20:17)! We hope this episode provided you with some good information! If it did, we'd love for you to leave an iTunes review - we read everyone and really appreciate it! Until next time, Peace, Love, and Muscles! Jason and Lauren ...

What's up, Achievers! Sorry in advance for this episode as there were A LOT of Kendrick interruptions in the first 10 minutes or so! It's a good one though and we managed to get through four questions! For question one, we covered how to strengthen your rhomboids (0:57). Then, we discussed some quick workout strategies when you're home for the holidays (4:10). Next, we delved into what to do if you're experiencing ankle pain while squatting (7:55). Finally, we gave some dating advice! Haha! I think we gave some solid advice here, but take it with a grain of salt (12:34). We hope you enjoyed this episode!

#AskAchieve 129: Hamstring Tightness, Knees Over Toes, Tucking Hips at the Top of the Squat, and 2-A-Days!

What's up, Achievers?! We've got a good episode for you all today filled with some mythbusting! Our first topic was addressing what might be happening if your hamstrings are "always tight" (2:50). After that, we covered why you might find that a lot of fitness professionals really, aggressively tuck the hips under at the top of their squat (6:20). Next, we went over "knees over toes" - where it came from and if it has any validity (9:12). Lastly, we went over whether or not we recommend 2-a-days (12:40). Our Stories That'll Make Your Heart Sing Segment starts on 18:58! We hope you enjoyed this episode!
