#AskAchieve 66: Why Context is Everything when Offering Advice, How to Improve Single Leg Deadlifts, Pros/Cons of Arching Your Back During Bench Presses!

What's up, Achievers?! We're back with a short and sweet episode covering a wide spectrum of topics! We first discussed one of our answers to a DM we got on how to optimally set up a workout routine. Anytime we get a question through DM, we typically ask 5-6 more clarifying questions to make sure that we understand the context of the situation before dispensing advice. We think this is an approach that all coaches should take and for people to be wary of those who don't utilize this approach as there's usually a hidden agenda attached to it (2:36). We then covered a question concerning single leg deadlifts and how not to feel too wobbly/off-balance while performing them by going through the proper progressions (7:50). Lastly, we talk about why we generally recommend arching during a bench press as well as the pros/cons of this style of benching (12:37). We hope you enjoyed this episode!
