Show Notes

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

#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!
