Show Notes

What’s up, Achievers?! Jason and Lauren here and today we're discussing how you would organize a week of workouts for those of you who like to partake in activities like yoga/mobility work/running/walking/hiking/etc! The key variables we're looking at are: 1) Figuring out what your availability is 2) Understanding which buckets your activities fall into: high strain or low strain 3) Trying not do exceed high strain activities for more than 4 days per week unless your hydration, sleep, nutrition, stress management are extremely on point and trying to not do 3 high strain days in a row. But, of course, this is all general advice that should be taken with a grain of salt, but we hope it gives you something to work off of! 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, sweat out; happiness in! Jason and Lauren P.S.

RPE and Why You Shouldn't Train to Failure

What's up, Achievers?! This episode is from a topic brought up by @shuqiiiella who wanted us to touch on understanding RPE and progressive overload as it pertains to a strength training program. Lauren and I dive deep on the merits of an RPE based system, why we recommend it for our members, and how it helps in the grand scheme of an overall program. We also touch on progressive overload and we believe in all the cliche's like "taking one step back to take two steps forward" and "trusting the process". If you strength train at all, this podcast will definitely be helpful in terms of how to set your ego aside and how to take a longer, more sustainable approach to your training! 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 80: The Coaches' Episode and a Special Announcement for Coaches!

What's up, Achievers?! This episode is specifically for all you coaches, personal trainers, and fitness professionals out there! We cover topics like when we talk about mindset and nutrition habits during our training sessions, what we do if we think our workouts progress clients too slowly, and if we make any modifications during our assessment process if we're working with someone who is elderly. At the end of the episode, we discuss a project we've been working on for quite some time now. It's an educational platform that covers everything that Lauren and I wished we had known when we first started out as personal trainers - it ranges from nitty gritty stuff like what CPT you should pursue, to where you should look for your first job all the way down to how to sell yourself at your gym, how to program for your clients, how to provide nutritional advice, how to teach the fundamental movement patterns (squatting, hinging, pushing, pulling, lunging, etc.) and coach them based upon the invidividual in front of you rather than forcing them into "textbook" form, and how to approach personal branding. Future modules are going to cover the ins and outs of kettlebell training, powerlifting, olympic lifting as well as presentations on very specific topics brought up by the group. The most important aspect of the platform will be the community. Personal training is a pretty lonely field, and not many people/friends/family will understand the true "grind" and nature of our work. Having a community of like-minded professionals to learn from, collaborate with, bounce ideas off of, and sometiems comiserate with is going to be invaluable. This won't be just a one-off product that we ...

#AskAchieve 73: Should You Foam Roll Your IT Band, Neck/Shoulder Pain from Pull Ups, the Most Efficient Warm Ups, and Tips for a Grad Wanting to Open Up Their Own Gym!

What's up, Achievers?! Really, really solid episode today for you all - even though we felt jet lagged because of a fire alarm that woke us up in the middle of the night! There is a little static for some reason at the end of question one, but it seemed to work itself pretty quickly. We first discussed all of the contradictory advice and information concerning foam rolling, and rolling your IT band (2:33). We then covered what to do if you're experience shoulder and neck pain from pull ups. We described why this might be happening as well as some strategies to counteract it (8:42)! Then we talked about how to approach warming up quickly when you're short on time (13:15). Lastly, we gave some advice to a recent grad with an Exercise Science degree on whether or not they should think to open up a gym (17:39). 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!
