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

We know exactly what works in real life, because we actually work with people on a daily basis! We have a gym with 250 members, and we will show you the same principles and concepts we discuss with them on a daily basis.

#AskAchieve 81: Lower Back Pain, Squatting With Ankle Mobility Restrictions, and Dealing With Weight Fluctuations!

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!
