#AskAchieve 70: How We Opened Up Achieve, Wrist Straps and Weight Belts, and How to Keep Your Elbows Straight During Overhead Exercises!

What's up, Achievers?! This one was fun one, because we talked a little bit about our origin story - where we got our start as fitness coaches and how we transitioned to being gym owners and opening up Achieve. We expand on our mission and how it has evolved up until this point (2:48). We also cover our thoughts on whether or not wrist wraps and weight belts are good to use, and whether there's a time and a place for them (18:09). Lastly, we talk about how to keep your elbows locked out during overhead movements like Turkish Get Ups, overhead presses, and windmills, and how it might not be a true issue at your elbow (23:15). 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 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!
