Show Notes

What's up, Achievers?! This episode is from a topic brought up by @shuqiiiella who wanted us to touch on understanding RPE and progressive overload as it pertains to a strength training program. Lauren and I dive deep on the merits of an RPE based system, why we recommend it for our members, and how it helps in the grand scheme of an overall program. We also touch on progressive overload and we believe in all the cliche's like "taking one step back to take two steps forward" and "trusting the process". If you strength train at all, this podcast will definitely be helpful in terms of how to set your ego aside and how to take a longer, more sustainable approach to your training! 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, sweat out; happiness in! Jason and Lauren P.S.
