Show Notes

What's up, Achievers?! Hope you all had a wonderful couple weeks! In the first topic, we go over one of the more common mistakes that we see at the gym (3:27). Next, we went over why we choose not to talk about exercises that will help someone get "ripped" or "lean" (7:45). From there, we talked about why all coaches regardless of whether or not they do olympic lifting or powerlifting or gymnastics or calisthenics or kettlebells or sandbags or sports performance etc should all strive to respect and learn from one another (10:48). Lastly, we talk about why exercises that "burn" the most calories might be misleading you (15:20). Our Stories That Will Make Your Heart Sing segment involved a young boy and the University of Tennessee (22:27)! 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. High fives and positive vibes! Jason and Lauren

What's up, Achievers?! Sorry for the hiatus! It's been difficult to time our usual podcast time around Kendrick's feeding and napping schedule so we decided to not stress and just take a week off. Still struggling a bit, but we're back! In the first question, we cover why you might see some very specific strategies like excessive chin tucking during hip thursts and aggresive pelvic tilting during squats (1:39). In the next question, we talk about why someone's back might round when receiving a barbell clean (6:39). Finally, we flip the script a little bit and discuss strategies to gain weight and get into a caloric surplus for all you hardgainers out there (10:11). We hope you enjoyed this episode!
