Show Notes

What's up, Achievers?! Another successful podcast! This time Kendrick was fast asleep in a carrier beside us - he made a couple of peeps, but slept pretty peacefully throughout the episode overall! In the first question, we cover a question concerning how to increase grip strength for deadlifts (1:53). Then, we go over the topic of "winging scapula". We talk about why there isn't anything inherently "wrong" with winging scaps and how to go about addressing it (7:17). Finally, we delve into two questions from a lister who asks how to deal with repetitive injuries in the same area and if EMS (electronic muscle stimulation) training is valuable at all (14:11). 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
