Show Notes

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! 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. Until next time, Peace, Love, and Muscles!

Take Your Ego Out of the Equation!

What's up, Achievers?! So a couple of things about this episode - first it's actually episode 156 not 155, aaaand Lauren's audio cuts out a bit for the last 2 minutes. Sorry in advance! However, the rest turned out gravy and the topic is so, so important for long term fitness success. EVERYONE has their ego wrapped up in their workouts in some capacity. Lauren and I have been trying to get out of this mindset and sometimes we can't help it either. And when our ego takes a hit, we find that we get frustrated really easily, we irrationally do things like push through pain and not listen to our bodies, and ultimately resent the process instead of enjoying it. Only by taking ego out of the equation, can one truly enjoy the process again, adopt a beginner/explorer's mindset, and get better at their craft for the long term. 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. Until next time, sweat out; happiness in! Jason and Lauren P.S.

#AskAchieve 77: Imbalances While Squatting, If Foam Rolling is Enough When You Have Knee Pain, and Shoulder Pain After Playing Tennis!

What's up, Achievers?! In this episode we really delve into injuries and pain. Oftentimes, when we have an injury or setback it can feel really debilitating - not only physically, but mentally and emotionally as well. Hopefully after listening to this episode (especially the last question), you'll have a better sense of how to go about managing your health and fitness and overall mindset next time you experience pain and/or injury. The important thing to always note is that your body is very resilient and can bounce back quickly. That mindset alone can really have a major impact on how quickly things can turn back around! In the first question, we talk about what to do when experiencing an imbalance while squatting (4:17). Next, we cover if foam rolling alone is enough to address knee pain (8:11) or any pain for that matter. Lastly, we talk about how we manage acute pain - the example in the question was someone experiencing shoulder pain after playing tennis without warming up (16:32). We hope you enjoyed this episode!
