101 “Silver Strength Bullets” to Build Strength & Burn Fat Fast

“Silver Strength Bullets” are my weekly shortlist of quick, actionable bullets to get you stronger, leaner, and performing at a higher level. I send them to my private members-area via email every Friday morning. And over the past few months I’ve compiled a fistful of my best Silver Strength Bullets into one place (here!) and laid them out for you as neatly as possible. There are 101 — because my marketer friend, David, told me odd numbers are catchy. I don’t know if that’s true (I’m no marketer) but I did put a buttload (?) of time and effort into these — and they work very well — so I hope you enjoy them enough to plop a couple in your back pocket and save ’em for later. Listen. As you’ll see, I’m not trying to sell you anything. These are free, a gift from me to you, because what I want to do — all I want to do — is give you clear, practical, and effective strategies to help you achieve your goals (whatever they may be). Cool? Cool. Here’s your 101 Silver Strength Bullets. And, should you want it, HERE is a free copy of The Metabolic Blueprint — a comphrensive workout manual with 101 of my best metabolic strength workouts for faster fat loss. Enjoy! -J 101 Silver Strength Bullets! 1…There’s no such thing as “too much” rear delt work. You can literally train them every day (with varying volumes and intensities) and your shoulders will get stronger, healthier, and more defined. The Bent Over Rear Delt Raise is my go-to exercise for them. 2…Eating fat doesn’t make you fat. The main driver of fat loss is total calories in vs. calories out. I actually...

8 Time Tested Tactics That Will Increase Your Productivity Right NOW

I’m not going to tell you to get off Facebook. I’m not going to tell you to turn your phone off And I’m definitely not going to tell you to “just be more productive” or any of the other amazing tips to increase your productivity that have already been blogged across the interwebz ad nauseum.  In this article I’m going to share with you 8 helpful and time tested tactics that will increase your productivity right now. And I mean right now. How Do I Know These Productivity Boosting Methods Work? I started my first business when I was 20 and at that point I knew I wanted to accomplish 2 major things: Help as many people as I possibly could by giving them the best training, nutrition, and fitness information in the world. Have the ability to travel the world, working solely from my computer, while doing number 1 (above) exceptionally well.  Fast forward 4 years and I’m doing, well, pretty much exactly what I set out to do. By 24 I’ve worked with hundreds of fitness enthusiasts all across the globe, had my work featured in numerous mainstream publications including CNN and The Huffington Post, and travel whenever and wherever I want. Now, I’m not saying this to impress you.  Rather, I’m saying this to instill within you the knowledge of what’s truly possible and the power to believe that you can accomplish anything and everything you want.  Back to my story… As my business grew larger and larger I was forced to develop systems that allowed me to create more content, work with more people, design more programs, and essentially just be more productive.  So that’s exactly what...
How to Do a Backflip: How I Learned (And So Can You) to Do a Backflip in Less Than 20-Minutes

How to Do a Backflip: How I Learned (And So Can You) to Do a Backflip in Less Than 20-Minutes

I always wanted to learn how to do a backflip. Ever since I was a little shit munchkin I thought learning to do a backflip would pretty much be the coolest thing in the entire world. But I think it’s safe to assume everyone would love to learn how to do a backflip. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be able to randomly bust out a sweet backflip whenever you felt like rendering every man and woman within a 3-block radius sexually attracted to the very essence of your being? Right? Exactly. Well, after a decade of weight lifting and 5-years of competitive powerlifting, I finally learned how to do a backflip. The best part? I learned how to do it in less than 20-minutes. In the remainder of this article I’m going to show you exactly how I learned the backflip and why I was able to learn it in such a short period of time. By the end of this piece you will have a much better understanding of the backflip and exactly what steps you need to take in order to learn it as quickly as possible.  Enjoy! -J My First Backflip Before I get into specifics, here’s a video of me doing my first backflip alongside a ridiculously strong and sexy girl (who also happens to be my girlfriend), Garrett. Garrett’s a gymnast. Like…a really, really good gymnast. And when I found out she could do a backflip, well, let’s just say I got pretty jealous. Fortunately, she’s a great coach and promised she’d teach me how to do it. So one Sunday Garrett and I were headed to the facility I coach at (AMP Fitness) when she mentioned she could start teaching me how to backflip before we started...
Powerlifting Meet Recap: My 4x Bodyweight Deadlift and What’s Next for Syatt Fitness

Powerlifting Meet Recap: My 4x Bodyweight Deadlift and What’s Next for Syatt Fitness

Ever since I was 18-years old it’s been my goal to hit a 4x bodyweight deadlift.  At that time I could barely deadlift 225lbs (not even 2x my bodyweight) but I quickly became obsessed with my 4x bodyweight deadlift goal and spent the better part of the next 5-years doing everything I could to achieve it. Finally, in March of 2012, I hit my first 3x BW deadlift: 402.5lbs at a BW of 132lbs Until that pull, a 4x bodyweight deadlift seemed like a far-fetched dream. A monstrous and most likely unattainable feat of strength. Not anymore. As soon as I deadlifted 3x my bodyweight I knew I was going to pull 4x. It was just a matter of time. And patience. A lot of patience. Fast forward almost 3-years to this past Saturday, January 24th, 2015, and I’m excited to announce that I finally achieved my goal. At a bodyweight of 130lbs, I deadlifted 530lbs for my first ever 4x bodyweight deadlift.  It was an extraordinary meet and I couldn’t possibly be any happier with my overall performance so below I’ve provided the play-by-play meet recap, ending with my 4x bodyweight deadlift.  Squat 380lbs (2.9x BW) Lifting in the Raw Classic division (sans knee wraps), this was an all-time personal record. During this past training cycle I ended up with some nagging hip pain and only squatted 1x/week for the last 8-weeks leading up to the meet. Despite the less than optimal training conditions, I’m very happy I was able to set a new personal record and move 1-step closer to a 3x BW squat. Moving forward I plan to squat 3x my...

Supreme Iron Warrior Meet Recap

Supreme Iron Warrior Meet Recap

This past weekend I competed in the RPS Surpreme Iron Warrior Powerlifting meet alongside one of my best friends and long-time training partner, Sean. One of the strongest, smartest, and all-around most genuine individuals I’ve ever known, this was Sean’s last Powerlifting competition. I originally wasn’t planning on competing until January 2015 but since this was Sean’s final meet I chose to enter and compete with him one last time. Sean lifted extraordinarily well and hit personal records in all 3 lifts. Totaling 1285lbs, Sean hit an easy 425lb squat, 310lb bench press, and 550lb deadlift. The best part was Sean had a lot left in the tank and, given the chance, easily could have totaled well above 1300lbs.  As for me… I had a pretty good day as well. Not nearly my best but much better than expected.  Before I go into the details, here were my best lifts of the day: Squat: 380lbs (2.5lb all-time personal record) Bench Press: 220lbs (no where near my best) Deadlift: 490lbs (5lb all-time personal record) Total: 1190lbs (slightly less than my all-time best) The Play by Play I’ve never felt worse going into a meet. Ever. Over the past 6-months my training has, unfortunately, taken a back seat and subsequently been no where near as consistent as I’d like it to be. Between working as a full-time coach, building Syatt Fitness, starting at AMP Fitness, trying to maintain some semblance of a social life, etc, etc, etc…my training went down the drain. It’d be easy for me to make any number of excuses but the reality is my performance is my responsibility.  Period. I hardly slept. I rarely ate enough. And I prioritized work far...
BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: I’m Opening a Brand New Gym in Boston!

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: I’m Opening a Brand New Gym in Boston!

SURPRISE!!! My friend and colleague, Steve Bergeron, and I are opening a brand new training facility called AMP Fitness right in the heart of Boston! Steve’s been working night and day (seriously, not kidding) for the better part of the last year to get AMP up and running and to make sure it’s unquestionably the single-best facility in Boston.  An expert strength coach specializing in movement, posture, and performance, Steve is one of the most kind, generous, intelligent, and hard working individuals I’ve ever met.  Ever. Like…EVER! Having known Steve since I was 19, he recently asked if I’d like to join him at AMP as a full-time strength coach and nutrition consultant.  Seeing as he’s a truly extraordinary coach with a wealth of knowledge and experience (not to mention he’s just a freakin’ awesome dude) I immediately accepted the position and couldn’t possibly be more excited. What’s AMP Going to be Like? Both Steve and I are  extremely serious individuals and under absolutely zero circumstances will we allow any fun in our facility. See those mean mugs? Make no mistake, we’re two of the meanest coaches around and plan to make AMP the single-most hardcore gym in the city. Think I’m joking? Here’s an even more threatening picture of us on AMP’s brand new turf field. See what I mean? No fun and games at AMP Fitness – strictly yelling and brute force will be used to motivate our clientele.  O.K., So Maybe I’m Joking… Truth be told, Steve and I are looking to create not only the best gym in Boston, we’re also trying to cultivate a...
