Syatt Fitness: The Week in Review (11/16/2014)

by Jordan Syatt November 16, 2014

Good morning!

This past week was absolutely insane with a bunch of great things happening like the grand opening party of AMP Fitness and me being quoted on CNN.

There was also a ton of great fitness info published in the last week which I’ve got for you here in this installment of The Week in Review.

Your Oly Shoes and Knee Wraps are a Waste of $$$: Here’s Why

Quit worrying so much about your Powerlifting equipment.

We have so many options when it comes to shoes, belts, knee wraps, and knee sleeves. Lifters are becoming neurotic when it comes to choosing the right piece of equipment.

There is no perfect squat shoe that will add 200 pounds to your squat.

Focus on what matters. Work on your technique, programming, recovery and diet. These are the factors that will improve your performance.

A week filled with both good and not-so-good training sessions, I discussed a variety of topics and provided you with a host information regarding my current training cycle in each log below.
