Show Notes

What's up, Achievers?! A fun episode for you all today with slightly different questions than normal! First, we talk about how to improve your handstand walks. Even, if you can't perform a full handstand just yet (like me - Jason), you'll still gain a lot of insight on the process from Lauren "State Handstand Champion" Pak xD (4:04). Next, we expand on a topic we covered in episode 51 about the difference between fast and slow twitch muscle fibers. Lila asked if she should just not do any power training whatsoever because she is more slow-twitch dominant (12:13). Finally, we discussed how to deal with tennis elbow and tendinitis. We had a pretty specific answer here because we were able to actually gain some more context on the person's workout history. Our answer might have been totally different had we not stumbled upon their feed so we might tackle tendinitis more generally in the future (17:44)! 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!

#AskAchieve 93: Grip Strength for Deadlifts, Winging Scapula, Repeat Injuries, and Our Thoughts on EMS Training!

What's up, Achievers?! Another successful podcast! This time Kendrick was fast asleep in a carrier beside us - he made a couple of peeps, but slept pretty peacefully throughout the episode overall! In the first question, we cover a question concerning how to increase grip strength for deadlifts (1:53). Then, we go over the topic of "winging scapula". We talk about why there isn't anything inherently "wrong" with winging scaps and how to go about addressing it (7:17). Finally, we delve into two questions from a lister who asks how to deal with repetitive injuries in the same area and if EMS (electronic muscle stimulation) training is valuable at all (14:11).
