What's up, Achievers?! Super fun episode for you all today - thanks for all of your questions!! In the first one, we discuss a question from a powerlifter mother of three who also happens to have diastasis recti. We recommend what diastasis is, what she should do to strengthen her core, while also modifying her training both physically and mentally (3:30)! We also cover proper hand care during "crossfit" type movements like kipping pull ups, toes to bars, muscle ups, etc. We discuss hand care for after the fact as well as potential preventative strategies (12:42). Lastly, we discuss our training strategies for an aspiring model! Our advice happens to go in the complete opposite direction of where we usually go with our answers (20:45) so you might find this one interesting! We hope you enjoyed this episode!

#AskAchieve 65: How we Practice Positivity, Tips for Front Squats, "Quick" Weight Loss Strategies, and Muscles That Are "Non-Responders"!

What's up, Achievers?! We're back on track with a Monday/Wednesday episode week! In the first question, we dive into how try to stay positive most of the time. It's certainly not easy, but something we've been actively conscious of trying to be for a while now (1:37). Next, we cover a question on how to perform front squats if you don't have the mobility to perform them (5:57). The video we reference is here: [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3olJCZoaV4k&t=0s ](http://) We then go over how someone should approach "quick" weight loss. We obviously prefer a longer term approach, but we recognize there are times where maybe you want to take it up a notch for a couple weeks (weddings, reunions, competitions, etc.). If you have a very specific reason, then dialing things in for a short period of times is totally fine! (10:29). Lastly, we talk about muscles (the lats specifically, but also glutes/abs/pecs/etc.) that seem to have a tough time being activated or strengthened (17:21). 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!
