Syatt Fitness: The Week in Review (5/24/2015)

by Jordan Syatt May 24, 2015

G’morning and happy Sunday!

The weather here in Boston has been entirely too nice not to spend every waking moment outside, so Garrett and I spent all day yesterday hiking at a great spot just outside the city.

We’re actually about to get going so we can have an early start and train outdoors but, before we do, I’ve got a huge installment of The Week in Review for you to check out.

Enjoy and have an awesome long weekend!

Monday’s Deadlifts: 3 x 5 at 425lbs (Beltless)

I’m making my way back from a hamstring strain about 2 months ago these deadlifts were a HUGE indicator that I’m back to full health. Very excited about these and I’ll be attempting 445lbs next week.

Close-Grip Pull-Ups: 3 x 10 An absolutely brutal pull-up variation, these close-grip pull-ups left my lats sore for about 3-days. I’ll be using these in my program for the next 4-weeks and I’m very excited to track how they improve.

Single-Leg RDL’s: 3 x 12/leg with 160lbs

Single-Leg RDL’s are my absolute favorite hip dominant accessory exercise for glute, hamstring, and low back development. Using 160lbs for 12 reps was a huge personal record so I was stoked!
