Show Notes

What's up, Achievers?! Our introduction has some references to our last podcast episode where we talk about what to do when someone offers you unsolicited advice at the gym - we couldn't think of a great answer, so we sought out your opinion, and Lauren's mom happened to write in with the perfect answer! In our first question, we cover what we think about squatting with a natural arch in your lower back (2:23). Next, we talk about how to get back into Olympic lifting after preganancy (5:04). Finally, we delved into how to improve your upper back mobility for cat/cows (9:57). 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! Jason and Lauren
