Client Spotlight

I’m beyond excited and proud of my online coaching client, Emily, for hitting her first ever 135lb bench press…for multiple reps!

Emily and I started working together just over 2-months ago and I can say without a shadow of a doubt she is one of the hardest working individuals I’ve ever had the pleasure of coaching. 

Congratulations on hitting a huge personal record and an incredible milestone, Emily!


My Strength Lesson’s & Training Logs

My strength lessons and training logs are back and I’m posting them daily on Instagram! I’ve shared some brand new videos with you below but if you want more make sure to follow me on Instagram @SyattFitness

I decided to practice my ninja skills prior to heavy deadlifting the other day. You know…just in case someone tries to mug me.

I’ve been doing a lot more conditioning lately and this is a short clip from one of my “Armour Building” workouts as designed by my new strength coach, Mike Perry. A ladder drill consisting of cleans, squats, and farmers carry’s…this had me drenched in sweat.

Finally, here’s a short clip of me hitting a 505lb Sumo Deadlift for 2 reps. Very happy to see that I’m maintaining/gaining strength even with all the conditioning I’ve added to my workouts.
