#AskAchieve 71: Decreasing Hamstring Pain and Increasing Glute Activity During RDLs, Which Muscles You Should Feel During Squats, and How to Address a Weight Loss and Strength Plateau!

What's up, Achievers?! We've got a GREAT episode for you all today - we received some really great questions that are slightly different, which allowed us to go really deep in our answers. First off, we discussed how to decrease hamstring activity (to the point of pain) and increase glute activity during RDLs and Single Leg RDLs (2:35). We then covered what muscles "should" be working during a squat and if it's okay to not feel your quads as much during them (7:09). We also talked about how your back position should be while descending during a squat. Should you arch? Should you keep your back flat? What gives - why is there so much conflicting information?? (12:01) Finally, we went over what to do when experiencing both a weight loss AND strength plateau (17:30). 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 ...

AchieveMentors #4: How We Onboard Our Members!

What's up, Achievers?! AchieveMentors is our podcast for fitness coaches and aspiring personal trainers. In today's episode, we go over exactly how we onboard our members from the inquiry to the retention process. Now, we currently have a team of about 10 coaches and managers so our process is a much bigger operation. If you're a personal trainer or gym owner operating alone, we hope this doesn't overwhelm you, but rather give you some ideas on how you can optimize your onboarding process! 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!

#AskAchieve 34: Training Through Pregnancy, Bulgarian Split Squats, Muscles Knots/Adhesions, and a Special Announcement!

What's up, Achievers?! Soooooo, Lauren is 13.5 weeks pregnant! We're super excited to finally share the news with you all - 3+ months is a loooong way to go without telling anyone some of the biggest news of your life! Anyways, we announced the news on social media today and of course one of the first questions we received was about how to train through pregnancy (2:36)! We actually had an episode previously (episode 3!) that really delved into the specifics and you can find that here: [https://achievingfitness.podiant.co/e/359a28c4cc9e1c/](http://) However, we touched a little bit more on the mental side of things and think both episodes should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect when training through a pregnancy! We also talked about Bulgarian or Rear Foot Elevated Split Squats and what to do if you're cramping in your back leg (11:52). We also cover what muscle knots/adhesions are, where they come from, and how to get rid of them (14:19). Finally, we recommend our favorite fitness and business books (20:17)! We hope this episode provided you with some good information! If it did, we'd love for you to leave an iTunes review - we read everyone and really appreciate it! Until next time, Peace, Love, and Muscles! Jason and Lauren ...
