How to Get Your First Push-Up!

What’s up, Achievers?! We got a ton of great feedback from our "Get Your First Pull-Up" episode that we decided to create one for the push-up as well! You'll find a ton of underlying common themes from training for your first pull-up to training for your first push-up; however, we do deep dive on specific technique you'll want to adopt for push-ups. A sample program might looking something like this if you were training push-ups 3 times per week: * Week 1: 3 sets of 8 * Week 2: 3 sets of 9 * Week 3: 3 sets of 10 * Week 4: option to drop down the incline by a couple inches and do 3 sets of 8, or stay at the same height and do 4 sets of 8! You can follow that progression until the incline you're using is around knee height. From there you'll want to practice: 1) Push Up to an Elevated Surface 2) Kneeling Push-Ups Just alternate between those two movements and get 3-4 sets of Grease the Groove (leave 2 reps in the tank). Each week, try to add a rep or even a set. For even faster results, we think it would be a great idea to follow a total body strength training program like [RISE](https://shop.achievefitnessonline.com/products/rise-program) that also incorporates compound movements as well as chest pressing and core work!

#AskAchieve 67: Relaxing Your Neck During Core Exercises, Diastasis Recti and Core Training During Pregnancy, and What to do When You Feel Like Your Progress Has Stalled!

What's up, Achievers?! Slightly longer episode for you all today to make up for the shorter one on Monday. This one dives deep into a wide spectrum of questions - definitely check it out! In our introduction, we discuss how coaches should put themselves out there and podcast if they've been thinking about it! Don't wait for the perfect moment, or wait to get the right equipment, or watch more YouTube videos on the subject - the best way to learn is to DO! After that, we talk about how to optimally approach your core training so that you don't tax your neck muscles (6:13). We then covered what Distasis Recti is, and how to train your core throughout and after your pregnancy (13:28). Lastly, we dive into a particular struggle someone had with a bit of a plateau type of situation with their weight loss. We discuss some strategies that have worked well with our members, and dive a little bit deeper into the psychology of attemping to gain lean muscle rather than purely trying to lose weight. 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!

How to Get Your First Pull-Up!

What's up, Achievers?! This episode was prompted by one of our IG followers who asked us how they should train for pull-ups. From form to mindset to programming to technique, we've got you covered! As for the program, here it is written down: 1) Use a band you can perform 8 reps with. We like [Perform Better superbands](https://www.performbetter.com/First-Place-Superbands). We recommend getting a 1 3/4in, 1 1/8in, 3/4in, 1/2in if possible! Add in a 1in and 1/4in if you really want the full set! 2) Use the band you can get 8 reps with, but start at 5 reps. * Week 1: 3 sets of 5 * Week 2: 4 sets of 5 * Week 3: 5 sets of 5 * Week 4: 3 sets of 6 (deload) * Week 5: 4 sets of 6 * Week 6: 5 sets of 6 * Week 7: 3 sets of 7 (deload) * Week 8: 4 sets of 7 * Week 9: 5 sets of 7 * Week 10: 3 sets of 8 (deload0 * Week 11: 4 sets of 8 * Week 12: 5 sets of 8 3) Go down a band size (from 1 3/4in to 1 1/8in for example) * Week 13: 3 sets of 5 with the new band 4) Rinse and repeat!
