Show Notes

What's up, Achievers?! Soooooo, Lauren is 13.5 weeks pregnant! We're super excited to finally share the news with you all - 3+ months is a loooong way to go without telling anyone some of the biggest news of your life! Anyways, we announced the news on social media today and of course one of the first questions we received was about how to train through pregnancy (2:36)! We actually had an episode previously (episode 3!) that really delved into the specifics and you can find that here: [https://achievingfitness.podiant.co/e/359a28c4cc9e1c/](http://) However, we touched a little bit more on the mental side of things and think both episodes should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect when training through a pregnancy! We also talked about Bulgarian or Rear Foot Elevated Split Squats and what to do if you're cramping in your back leg (11:52). We also cover what muscle knots/adhesions are, where they come from, and how to get rid of them (14:19). Finally, we recommend our favorite fitness and business books (20:17)! We hope this episode provided you with some good information! If it did, we'd love for you to leave an iTunes review - we read everyone and really appreciate it! Until next time, Peace, Love, and Muscles! Jason and Lauren

#AskAchieve 129: Hamstring Tightness, Knees Over Toes, Tucking Hips at the Top of the Squat, and 2-A-Days!

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).
