Show Notes

What's up, Achievers?! We may or may not have had our baby by the time you listen to this - we recorded this right after our Monday episode so we didn't leave you hanging if we did! In the first question, we dive into why a person might not have any problems squatting below parallel while pushing a plate out in front of them, but can barely hit 90 degrees when a bar is on their back (5:12). We then talk about how we address bilateral and unilateral knee pain while squatting (9:40). Finally, we address what a person should do if they're experiencing a lot of big toe pain while lunging (14:59). 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!

What's up, Achievers?! One of our favorite episodes to date thus far and we address a wide variety of topics in this one :) We first address why we, unlike a lot of fitness professionals, don't choose to meal prep. (2:12) Then, we talk about an Instagram post we posted last week about how some days during your training feel great and why some might not feel quite as great and how to trust the process throughout those ups and downs (7:29). Afterwards, we discussed the concept of "neutral" and how we think there might a bit of an "obsession" around it in the age of social media (12:53). Finally we talked about why all diets "work" to a certain degree, which is why one isn't better than another, and why you need to find the one that works for you!
