#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 65: How we Practice Positivity, Tips for Front Squats, "Quick" Weight Loss Strategies, and Muscles That Are "Non-Responders"!

What's up, Achievers?! We're back on track with a Monday/Wednesday episode week! In the first question, we dive into how try to stay positive most of the time. It's certainly not easy, but something we've been actively conscious of trying to be for a while now (1:37). Next, we cover a question on how to perform front squats if you don't have the mobility to perform them (5:57). The video we reference is here: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3olJCZoaV4k&t=0s ](http://) We then go over how someone should approach "quick" weight loss. We obviously prefer a longer term approach, but we recognize there are times where maybe you want to take it up a notch for a couple weeks (weddings, reunions, competitions, etc.). If you have a very specific reason, then dialing things in for a short period of times is totally fine! (10:29). Lastly, we talk about muscles (the lats specifically, but also glutes/abs/pecs/etc.) that seem to have a tough time being activated or strengthened (17:21). We hope you enjoyed this episode!
