Syatt Fitness: The Week in Review (3/1/2015)

by Jordan Syatt March 1, 2015

Good morning and happy Sunday!

I’m happily writing to you from Aspen, Colorado this morning since Garrett and I decided we needed a weekend getaway and chose Aspen as the destination.

We flew out on Friday morning and spent all day yesterday (and will spend all day today) snowboarding, hiking, and enjoying the incredible weather .

Honestly, I love it here.

I could even see myself living here one day.

All in all, it’s been an amazing weekend. Well, aside from the horrendous pains in my ass (literally) from learning how to snowboard for the first time and consistently landing on my tuchus.

Fortunately, this past week was packed with a ton of great fitness information which I’ve got here for you in this installment of The Week in Review.

Squat Jump + Triple Broad Jump

A phenomenal drill to develop speed, power, rate of force development, deceleration capacity, and more…the Squat Jump + Triple Broad Jump is unquestionably one of my all-time favorite warm-up exercises. 

KB Bulgarian Split Squats

Great for simultaneously improving hip mobility and stability along with overall lower body and core strength, the KB Bulgarian Split Squat is a brutally effective drill to incorporate on your lower body training days.
