Another fantastic week has come and gone and, fortunately, my girlfriend, Garrett, and I were able to go out last night and celebrate the end of the week with a massive sushi dinner and a few cocktails.
Today’s another gorgeous day here in Boston and there’s a freshly brewed jug o’ coffee I haven’t started drinking yet so I’ve gotta jet. But I’m happy to report this past week was packed with tons of great fitness info and I’ve got it all here for you in this brand new installment of The Week in Review.
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 tofollow me on Instagram @SyattFitness
Sumo Deadlift Challenge: 405lbs x 15 reps at a Body Weight of 140lbs
Nearly 3x my body weight, I wanted to get 20-reps at 405lbs but after 15 I decided to call it quits before I risked getting injured. I’ll probably go for it again this week or next and make sure I get all 20.
Close-Stance High Box Squat with Eccentric Emphasis: 4 x 12 @ 245lbs
An absolutely brutal drill, I’ve been spending a lot of time focused on bringing up my quad strength and hypertrophy and this squat variation has proven indispensable. Definitely not for the faint of heart…but absolutely an incredibly effective drill.
