Show Notes

What's up, Achievers?! This is one of our best episodes to date - I think we're finally getting a hang of this podcast thing! Only took us 41 episodes... Anyways, we start off by addressing negative comments and how to deal with the "haters" on your fitness journey. We've had our fair share of not-so-nice things said to us on the interwebs, and we wanted to share that with you all just so you know that everyone gets negative feedback - even fitness coaches! Next, we go over our recommendations for someone who has chronic back pain but wants to attain size and strength in his quads/hamstrings (7:17). Then, we get asked a question from a personal trainer how we work with members whose initial goals are to spot reduce fat from specific areas (11:43). Finally, we give some advice to a couple who is planning on joining each other in the world of gym ownership! (19:31) We hope this episode helped you out! If it did, we'd love if you gave two minutes of your time to leave us a review - it really helps us out! Until next time, Peace, Love, and Muscles!

#AskAchieve 35: Calves and Ankle Mobility, Doctors Who Tell You to Stop Squatting, and How to Train When You Can't Hire a Coach!

What's up, Achievers?! All right, so we start off by chatting about an interesting observation Lauren has made while interacting with people on Instagram. We delve into what being "fit" looks like as well as how genetics plays the most important role in terms of what your body type will be like. We also cover calf training and if/how it might limit your ankle mobility (9:32). We also talk about squatting and knee pain, and how some doctors tell you to stop squatting altogether! (13:14).

#AskAchieve 106: Would We Recommend RomWod/MobilityWod, How Our Training Has Changed Since We Became Parents, and If Currently Have Any Joint Pain!

What's up, Achievers?! It took us a little while to get going because Kendrick has been through a bit of a sleep regression and we were recording this episode pretty early - so bear with us haha! In the first question we answer a question asking if we recommend a mobility program like RomWod or MobilityWod (1:29). We then go over how our personal workouts have been modified and adjusted after we've become parents (5:58). Finally, we discussed if we currently are in any physical pain (17:21). A lot about us in this episode! We were hoping to shed a little light on the way we currently train as well as our previous injury history, because we often think that people think we eat clean 100% of the time and that we workout 7 days a week for 2 hours a day, but honestly we love a moderate approach to health and fitness. We love this approach because it's the most sustainable! So, hopefully our current training schedules and injury history give you some room to be kinder to yourself and to be more patient with yourself as well! 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!
