Show Notes

What's up, Achievers?! We've got a good episode for you all today filled with some mythbusting! Our first topic was addressing what might be happening if your hamstrings are "always tight" (2:50). After that, we covered why you might find that a lot of fitness professionals really, aggressively tuck the hips under at the top of their squat (6:20). Next, we went over "knees over toes" - where it came from and if it has any validity (9:12). Lastly, we went over whether or not we recommend 2-a-days (12:40). Our Stories That'll Make Your Heart Sing Segment starts on 18:58! 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

Take Your Ego Out of the Equation!

What's up, Achievers?! So a couple of things about this episode - first it's actually episode 156 not 155, aaaand Lauren's audio cuts out a bit for the last 2 minutes. Sorry in advance! However, the rest turned out gravy and the topic is so, so important for long term fitness success. EVERYONE has their ego wrapped up in their workouts in some capacity. Lauren and I have been trying to get out of this mindset and sometimes we can't help it either. And when our ego takes a hit, we find that we get frustrated really easily, we irrationally do things like push through pain and not listen to our bodies, and ultimately resent the process instead of enjoying it. Only by taking ego out of the equation, can one truly enjoy the process again, adopt a beginner/explorer's mindset, and get better at their craft for the long term. 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!
