Syatt Fitness: The Week in Review (7/12/2015)

by Jordan Syatt July 12, 2015

Hey there and happy Sunday!

This installment of The Week in Review is coming out later than usual (and I apologize for that) but I promise it’s for good reason.

I’ve spent the past few days hiking (re: doing handstands) around Colorado and enjoying a phenomenal vacation weekend with my girlfriend. 

We’ve been all over the state, spent nearly 20-hours hiking, and had entirely too much fun.

The good news is, now I’m back and right here with a brand new installment of The Week in Review including the best fitness information and articles from the past week.

Enjoy and have a great Sunday!


Articles By Jordan

One of my most popular articles to date, in this piece I show you one of the all-time best exercises for improving shoulder health, strength, and function. I also dig a little further down the rabbit hole and explain the 3 most common mistakes and precisely how to avoid them.

If you know anyone with shoulder issues, please help them out and share this article with them.

Client Spotlight: Kelly

Simultaneously one of the most kind and caring ladies I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, Kelly has been a member in my online training and nutrition program for the better part of the last year and never ceases to amaze me with her effort, dedication, and limitless hard work.

Not only has Kelly completely transformed her physique but she’s drastically improved her outlook, perspective, and relationship with food.
