Show Notes

What's up, Achievers?! So a couple of things about this episode - first it's actually episode 156 not 155, aaaand Lauren's audio cuts out a bit for the last 2 minutes. Sorry in advance! However, the rest turned out gravy and the topic is so, so important for long term fitness success. EVERYONE has their ego wrapped up in their workouts in some capacity. Lauren and I have been trying to get out of this mindset and sometimes we can't help it either. And when our ego takes a hit, we find that we get frustrated really easily, we irrationally do things like push through pain and not listen to our bodies, and ultimately resent the process instead of enjoying it. Only by taking ego out of the equation, can one truly enjoy the process again, adopt a beginner/explorer's mindset, and get better at their craft for the long term. 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.

#AskAchieve 54: How to Improve Your Handstand Walks, Letting Slow Twitch Muscles Dictate Your Training, and How to Deal with Tennis Elbow!

What's up, Achievers?! A fun episode for you all today with slightly different questions than normal! First, we talk about how to improve your handstand walks. Even, if you can't perform a full handstand just yet (like me - Jason), you'll still gain a lot of insight on the process from Lauren "State Handstand Champion" Pak xD (4:04). Next, we expand on a topic we covered in episode 51 about the difference between fast and slow twitch muscle fibers. Lila asked if she should just not do any power training whatsoever because she is more slow-twitch dominant (12:13). Finally, we discussed how to deal with tennis elbow and tendinitis. We had a pretty specific answer here because we were able to actually gain some more context on the person's workout history. Our answer might have been totally different had we not stumbled upon their feed so we might tackle tendinitis more generally in the future (17:44)! 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!
