Show Notes

What's up, Achievers?! We're about 10 days our from Lauren's estimated due date so we're in full-on BABYWATCH! We're more than likely going to take a week or more off once the baby comes so if you don't hear from us for a minute - you'll know why! In the first question of this episode, we delve into lower back pain with certain positions. (2:58) Next, we cover whether or not you can still squat/deadlift/clean if you have ankle mobility restrictions. (6:08) We also talk at length to a person who has been experiencing a lot of weight fluctuations and what we'd recommend for her. This one was difficult to answer because our advice in these situations is so person-dependent and case specific. Hopefully, you're able to glean some insight from our long-winded "answer", but we didn't think it was appropriate to give any hard and fast statements here and definitely not any blanket recommendations. (10:55) 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!

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!
