Syatt Fitness: The Week in Review (7/5/2015)

by Jordan Syatt July 5, 2015

G’morning and happy holiday!

I hope you’re having a fantastic weekend and, if you’re celebrating the 4th, enjoying all of the food, fun, and festivities.

I’m about to head out on the town for another gorgeous day in Boston, but before I do I’m excited to share with you this latest installment of The Week in Review which has tons of the best fitness articles from the past week.

Enjoy and talk soon!


Articles By Jordan

This week I was the featured interviewee on the Food for Fitness (FFF) Podcast and had a great time chatting with their host and UK native, Scott Baptie. We covered a ton of ground pertaining to fat loss, strength, exercise selection, and a whole lot more. Enjoy!

My Training Logs

My 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

Long Lever Glute Ham Raise: 4 x 12

These are torture! Putting your arms overhead increases the lever arm which immediately increases the difficulty of a standard glute-ham raise. I use these for higher rep ranges (10-15) for hypertrophy focused work. Give em a shot and tell me what you think!

Ever wonder what makes protein so good for fat loss?

Why it’s absolutely essential to emphasize if you don’t want to sabotage your progress?

In today’s video I outline the top 3 reasons protein is a MUST for fat loss, as well as which protein sources are best for your goals.

Enjoy and share the love with anyone you think will benefit!

Client Spotlight: Erin

Erin’s been a member in my 1-on-1 online personal training program for the past 6-months and, as you can see, she’s been crushing her goals.

Briefly, Erin lifts heavy things 3x/week, keeps track of her calories, eats a boat load of animal flesh, and is arguably the most bad ass person I’ve ever had the pleasure of coaching.

She originally came to me with the hopes of leaning out for wedding season while working around her insanely busy travel/work schedule and, well, I think it’s safe to say she absolutely demolished her goals.

Congrats, Erin! Keep up the incredible work; I can’t wait to see how much progress you make in the coming months.
