Syatt Fitness: The Week in Review (8/2/2015)

by Jordan Syatt August 2, 2015

G’morning and happy Sunday!

You know those days where you wake up after a long week, slowly gather yourself over a hot mug of coffee, let out a sigh of relief and all of a sudden feel like a huge weight has been lifted off your shoulders?

That’s how I feel today and, I gotta be honest, it’s amazing.

So now, after a stressful week, I’m wicked excited to be planning my next trip starting in mid September where I’ll travel to Israel, stay there for about 4-weeks, and then probably make my way over to Europe. I’ll still be writing articles, making videos, producing content, and working with my online coaching clients, but I figured there’s no time like the present so if I’m going to travel…it might as well be now!

Fair warning: I’m sending more and more content (stuff that’s not available on this website) to my free VIP members via e-mail so if you want to join the community for free you can sign up HERE.

I’m also stoked because this week I’m hosting 2 free Syatt Fitness VIP Only Powerlifting for Fat Loss live mini courses. All 250 seats are taken for the course at 7pm on Tuesday but the 1pm course has several spots left so if you want to register you can become a VIP for free HERE and I’ll send you an e-mail on Monday or Tuesday with the registration link.

As for now, I’ve got a brand new installment of The Week in Review for you with a bunch of the best fitness content from the past week.

Enjoy and talk soon!


Articles By Jordan

In today’s “Article From the Archives” I reveal 4 of the worst deadlift mistakes I constantly see (even in intermediate/advanced lifters) and will drastically improve your deadlift technique, strength, and safety.

4 of the Worst Deadlift Mistakes You Could Ever Make

My Training Log

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

Pause Bulgarian Split Squat: 3 x 6/leg at 185lbs

Want a killer exercise to strengthen your glutes, quads, erectors, and your mind? Give these Pause Bulgarian Split Squats a shot. Here I’m doing 3 sets of 6 per leg with 185lbs and focusing on feeling the muscles do the work rather than relying on momentum and “ideal” leverages.

Client Spotlight: Mimi

Mimi has been my online coaching client for the past 6-months and she has never ceased to amaze me with her consistent hard work, dedication, and remarkable strength.

MimiWhen we first started working together Mimi told me she was going to be the hardest client I’ve ever coached.
She was wrong.
To date Mimi has put more effort into positively changing her life than I have ever seen in a single individual. Starting first with a nutrition-only program, Mimi spent countless hours dedicated to mastering her nutrition, learning and discovering what worked best for her.
She later began a consistent exercise routine and hasn’t missed a single day to date.
Congratulations, Mimi! You are smart, kind, generous, beautiful, and exceptionally hard working. I’m so proud of you and can’t wait to see your continued success!
