Show Notes

In this episode, Jason and Lauren discuss exactly how they would recommend going about training after an illness - the answer really depends on if you're competing in either Powerlifting or Olympic Weightlifting, or if you're training for general health, fitness, and life. They also address a Tim Ferris podcast with Charles Poliquin, who states that Kettlebell swings are bad for your back. Finally, as they approach their fifth year anniversary, they discuss their hopes and dreams for the next five. We hope you enjoy the show!

#AskAchieve 98: Difference Between Stiff Legged Deadlifts and Romanian Deadlifts, How to Prioritize Different Goals at the Same Time, If Deadlifts a Leg or Back Exercise, and In-Season Programming Considerations!

What's up, Achievers?! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Sorry the podcast has been more like 1x a week, but Kendrick has been limiting our opportunities a bit! In the first question, we delve into the difference between stiff legged deadlifts and Romanian deadlifts, and which one we prefer (2:11). We then go into how to prioritize different goals all at the same time (5:47). Next, we discuss how we classify deadlifts - as a back exercise or a leg exercise (10:52). Finally, we touch on a question on how we'd adjust and modify a program depending on if the athlete was in-season or pre-season (14:22). 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!

#AskAchieve Show Ep. 131: Coaches Bashing Other Coaches and Why Calories Burned Doesn't Tell the Whole Story!

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!
