#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 ...

#AskAchieve 66: Why Context is Everything when Offering Advice, How to Improve Single Leg Deadlifts, Pros/Cons of Arching Your Back During Bench Presses!

What's up, Achievers?! We're back with a short and sweet episode covering a wide spectrum of topics! We first discussed one of our answers to a DM we got on how to optimally set up a workout routine. Anytime we get a question through DM, we typically ask 5-6 more clarifying questions to make sure that we understand the context of the situation before dispensing advice. We think this is an approach that all coaches should take and for people to be wary of those who don't utilize this approach as there's usually a hidden agenda attached to it (2:36). We then covered a question concerning single leg deadlifts and how not to feel too wobbly/off-balance while performing them by going through the proper progressions (7:50). Lastly, we talk about why we generally recommend arching during a bench press as well as the pros/cons of this style of benching (12:37). 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 ...
