Show Notes

What's up, Achievers?! Great little discussion to kick off today's episode on how to determine where or not an exercise/modality (spin, Zumba, strength training, etc) is right for you (2:48). Next, we went over how to adjust single leg glute bridges so that it won't cause pain in your lower back (11:38). Lastly, we went over whether or not a trap bar deadlift would increase a person's conventional deadlift (18:03). 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

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!

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!
