What's up, Achievers?! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! In the first question, we talk about a couple ways to improve stability when you lunge. The key concepts are to reduce range of motion, make the exercise less dynamic, and utilize various forms of assistance (4:59). Next, we delved into how to transition from traditional strength exercises like lunges and dumbbell work, and move to more advanced exercises like barbell work like the powerlifts and olympic lifts (10:28). Lastly, we covered how to progressively overload "the right way". There is no "right way" - just the right way for a specific person at that specific moment in time so we discussed some broad principles here that hopefully you can glean some information from (18:14)!

#AskAchieve 44: How to Address Overall Tightness, What to do for Muscle Imbalances, and How to Tell if You're Overtraining!

What's up, Achievers?! Another fun episode for you all! In the first question, we discuss how to address if you or you're client has a lot of tightness overall in their hamstrings, upper traps, pecs, etc. We reference the book "Original Strength" by Tim Anderson that serves as the basis for a lot of our answers here (3:10). One area we didn't touch on was foam rolling/soft tissue work so make sure to include that as well! Next, we cover what to do for muscle imbalances (one muscle being a lot stronger/bigger than the other side). Don't worry - it's super common and normal, but we cover some ways to help mitigate having the imbalance become too great (9:49). Lastly, we answer a question from Tara Gentile - host of the podcast, "What Works". Tara's podcast is fantastic for small business owners that are looking for what has helped other small business owners become successful - definitely check it out! Anyways, her question was about overtraining. We discuss generally how to tell if you're overtraining and that there are a whole host of factors that go into overtraining. We also talka bout how if you are feeling run-down, you might be actually be "under-recovered" rather than "over-trained"! There wasn't a hard and fast answer here, but hopefully some of the discussion will help give you all a better understanding of the concept (14:23)! We hope you enjoyed this episode!
