#AskAchieve 69: Are Isolation Exercises Worth It, What To Do If Your Shoulders Are Popping, And How to Address Plateauing Weight Loss!

What's up, Achievers?! Super fun episode for you all today! In this episode, we talk about whether or not isolation based exercises like tricep extensions have any merit in a stregnth training program (2:33). We also cover what to do if your shoulders experience that "rice crispies" style popping when raising your arms overhead (10:09). Lastly, we talk about what to do as a personal trainer/fitness coach if your client is working really hard and making strength gains, but their weight hasn't changed much or has run into a plateau (14:34). We go into quite a bit of detail on how we would approach a situation like that, and both trainers and trainees alike might get value out of our answer! We hope you enjoyed this episode!
