Syatt Fitness: The Week in Review (2/22/2015)

broad jumpG’morning and happy Sunday!

This past week was another crazy one in Boston with all of the snow but a fun week nonetheless, culminating in yesterday’s couples fitness challenge at Achieve Fitness just outside the city. 

I recently met and became friends with the owners, Jason and Lauren, who put on an incredible challenge and did an extraordinary job all day long.

Garrett and I had a ton of fun and actually ended up winning the challenge as well as some sweet prizes along the way.

Notably, Garrett hit 2 huge personal records of 14 chin-ups and 40 push-ups in a row.

She’s insanely strong, I know.

I had a good day as well hitting 30 chin-ups in a row, 60 push-ups in 1 minute, and a 96-inch (8 foot) standing broad jump. 

All in all, it was a fantastic day with great people and an exceptional community. 

Moving on, I’ve got a ton of great info for you in this installment of The Week in Review so enjoy and I’ll talk to you soon.

Jim is a member of my online coaching program and in the past 12-weeks Jim added over 100lbs to his squat, bench press, and deadlift total. 

3 months.

90 days.

That’s all it took.

Needless to say, Jim worked exceptionally hard over the past 12-weeks and his extraordinary results speak themselves. 

What did I have Jim do?

Like all of my online coaching clients, I wrote Jim an individualized 12-week training program specifically designed to target his personal weaknesses.

Since Jim was focused on improving his raw powerlifting performance, I designed his program using the template I outlined in my book, Raw Strength for Powerlifting.

Raw Strength Book CoverThe only 12-week peaking program specifically designed for raw powerlifters, if you want to see how much you can increase your squat, bench press, and deadlift as quickly as possible I highly encourage you to give this program a shot.

Congratulations, Jim!

You worked incredibly hard over the past 12-weeks and I’m excited to continue working with you to see your continued progress.
