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
