Show Notes

What's up, Achievers?! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and we are back with another podcast! In question one, we discuss the concept of eating every 2-4 hours and whether or not it is superior for "stoking your metabolism" (2:34). Next, we talked about a specific person who happens to have better results dealing with shoulder impingement when benching on the Smith machine rather than using a barbell. We go over whether or not we think she should stick with the Smith machine, and some other considerations (8:02). After that, we talk about a scenario when a well-meaning fitness coach told one of our listeners that they needed to perform DOUBLE the amount of exercises they were currently performing in order to achieve good results. We talk about why that sort of advice is flawed and then go over our recommendations (10:53). Lastly, we go over whether or not nutrition is the most important factor to your health and fitness success (17:19)! 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! Jason and Lauren

Moving Away From A Weight Loss Mindset

What's up, Achievers?! In this episode, we discuss moving away from a weight loss mindset and shifting to more of a building strength/building muscle mindset. Lauren opens the show up with some of her personal story and struggles with body dysmorphia and then we transition to talking about the potential "cons" of having a weight loss mindset while discussing the "pros" of adopting more of a building strength mindset. This episode is quite free-flowing with a lot of different thoughts and tangents, but we wanted to make sure we touched on a wide variety of different adjacent topics. Lastly, we finish the show with some tangible action steps [20:57] you can take if you're more of a "structure" person! 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!
