G’morning and happy Sunday!
I’m taking this morning pretty easy, sipping on a freshly brewed cup’o coffee and reading the last few chapters of a new book I just bought and plowed through yesterday. Then I’ll be spending the rest of my day getting entirely too much vitamin D at the beach with a few other strength coaches and fitness nerds, like myself.
In the meantime, I’ve got a ton of great new fitness articles and information for you in this installment of The Week in Review.
Enjoy and have a great rest of your weekend!
Articles By Jordan
In this weeks article, “The RKC Plank is Massively Overrated: Try This Brand New Plank Variation to Blast Your Core,” I explain why the RKC Plank isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and which plank variation is superior for improving core strength and function.

Crow Pose to Handstand Hold
I took this week a little lighter and focused on a bunch of body weight/gymnastic drills to give myself a break from heavy lifting and have some fun in the sun.
The ultimate expression of mobility, stability, and single-leg strength…the pistol squat is a skill that took me a long time to achieve and I constantly practice to make sure I never lose.
Client Spotlight: Tracy
Tracy has been my online coaching client for the past 4-months and holy hell does she work hard.
When we first started working together Tracy was a little nervous because she wanted to lean out and gain strength without negatively affecting her performance in CrossFit.
I assured her that wouldn’t be a problem. The programming was easy peasy. She just had to do exactly what I said and not add anything extra.
Not only has she completely transformed her physique and radically increased her strength, she’s simultaneously improved her strength endurance and CrossFit performance along the way.
Oh, and this past week she did her first strict muscle up.
HOW NUTS IS THAT!?!?!
Congratulations, Tracy! You work so damn hard it blows my mind every day. Keep on killin’ it, Tracy!
