What's up, Achievers?! Sorry for the hiatus! It's been difficult to time our usual podcast time around Kendrick's feeding and napping schedule so we decided to not stress and just take a week off. Still struggling a bit, but we're back! In the first question, we cover why you might see some very specific strategies like excessive chin tucking during hip thursts and aggresive pelvic tilting during squats (1:39). In the next question, we talk about why someone's back might round when receiving a barbell clean (6:39). Finally, we flip the script a little bit and discuss strategies to gain weight and get into a caloric surplus for all you hardgainers out there (10:11). We hope you enjoyed this episode!

#AskAchieve 47: Lower Back Pain, Does Strength Training Make You "Bulky", and How to Recover from Shoulder Surgery!

What's up, Achievers?! First off we had to have a discussion about the Lauren vs Yanny viral debate!! The next two questions weren't technically podcast questions, but things that we adapted for the podcast. In the first one, I discuss lower back pain. We were recently interview by a journalist for US News asking about what the causes of back pain are, and how we attempt to manage it at Achieve (2:30). Next, we answered a question we got in-person from one of our members - the age old question: "Does strength training make me bulky?" (11:19). Lastly, we discuss tactics and strategy to recover from a shoulder surgery (18:51). We hope you enjoyed this episode!

#AskAchieve 139: Our Thoughts on the Peloton Ad and Where to Start if You Have a Weight Loss Goal!

What's up, Achievers?! We hope you've had a wonderful week thus far! We kick this episode off with our thoughts on the new Peloton ad and all of the outrage associated with it (0:40). We then go into a really big topic about weight loss. Where do you start? Does it make you bulky? Should you count macros? There's just so much more to weight loss than a single blanket answer which is why we rarely even address it on the show even though so many of the questions we receive revolve around it. We did our best to really give complete and thoughtful answers here but that also led to a lot of drawn out dialogue to make sure we really thoroughly covered our bases. The last thing we want to do is say anything that could potentially be damaging and we want to be as mindful of that as possible! We hope you'll stick with us here! (7:35). For more tangible weight loss tips you can check out episode 75! We don't have a Stories That'll Make Your Heart Sing Segment because we totally forgot! We do talk a little bit about our renovations and our rebrand though at the end! 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. High fives and positive vibes! Jason and Lauren ...
