#AskAchieve 93: Grip Strength for Deadlifts, Winging Scapula, Repeat Injuries, and Our Thoughts on EMS Training!

What's up, Achievers?! Another successful podcast! This time Kendrick was fast asleep in a carrier beside us - he made a couple of peeps, but slept pretty peacefully throughout the episode overall! In the first question, we cover a question concerning how to increase grip strength for deadlifts (1:53). Then, we go over the topic of "winging scapula". We talk about why there isn't anything inherently "wrong" with winging scaps and how to go about addressing it (7:17). Finally, we delve into two questions from a lister who asks how to deal with repetitive injuries in the same area and if EMS (electronic muscle stimulation) training is valuable at all (14:11).
