Show Notes

What's up, Achievers?! No exciting news to report - still no baby! In our first question, we talk about how to address your posture and whether or not it's even necessary to be overly concerned about it (2:55). Here's the link to the t-spine video we talked about in the show: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZdGwJuA08E](http://) Next, we discuss whether or not we think you should "imprint" your lower back to the floor when performing floor-based core work (10:05). Finally, we give some advice on how to structure a strength program. We delve into percentages, sets and reps, 1RMs, and constantly chasing PRs (15:32). We hope you enjoyed this episode!

Please DM us @achievefitnessboston on Instagram if you have any questions you'd like us to answer. Until next time, Peace, Love, and Muscles!
