#AskAchieve 108: Improving Lunge Stability, Transitioning from Traditional Strength Training to Powerlifting and Olympic Lifting, and How to Utilize Progressive Overload in Your Programs!

What's up, Achievers?! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! In the first question, we talk about a couple ways to improve stability when you lunge. The key concepts are to reduce range of motion, make the exercise less dynamic, and utilize various forms of assistance (4:59). Next, we delved into how to transition from traditional strength exercises like lunges and dumbbell work, and move to more advanced exercises like barbell work like the powerlifts and olympic lifts (10:28). Lastly, we covered how to progressively overload "the right way". There is no "right way" - just the right way for a specific person at that specific moment in time so we discussed some broad principles here that hopefully you can glean some information from (18:14)!

#AskAchieve 74: Should You Eat Every 2-4 Hours, Is It Okay to Bench Press on the Smith Machine, How Many Exercises You Should Include in Your Workout, and Is Nutrition the Biggest Factor for Health and Fitness Success!

What's up, Achievers?! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and we are back with another podcast! In question one, we discuss the concept of eating every 2-4 hours and whether or not it is superior for "stoking your metabolism" (2:34). Next, we talked about a specific person who happens to have better results dealing with shoulder impingement when benching on the Smith machine rather than using a barbell. We go over whether or not we think she should stick with the Smith machine, and some other considerations (8:02). After that, we talk about a scenario when a well-meaning fitness coach told one of our listeners that they needed to perform DOUBLE the amount of exercises they were currently performing in order to achieve good results. We talk about why that sort of advice is flawed and then go over our recommendations (10:53). Lastly, we go over whether or not nutrition is the most important factor to your health and fitness success (17:19)! 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!
