Syatt Fitness: The Week in Review (1/18/2015)

by Jordan Syatt January 18, 2015

Welcome to 2015’s first installment of The Week in Review!

Before we get to the good stuff (there’s a lot!) I’m excited to announce that I was recently ranked #12 on the list of the top 40 fitness professionals to follow in 2015.

I’ve looked up to many of these coaches since I was 13-years old so to say I’m honored to be included on this list would be a massive understatement.

Thank you for your support and encouragement. If it wasn’t for your trust in me, I wouldn’t be anywhere close to where I am today.

Now, let’s get to this installment of The Week in Review!

This past week was packed with ton’s of great fitness information so dig in and enjoy!

My New Favorite Party Trick

Last weekend my girlfriend taught me how to do a back flip and I’ve been practicing non-stop.

I’ve actually been practicing so much that during my most recent Deadlift workout, I thought I’d try a new trick: 1 moderately heavy deadlift immediately followed by a backflip.

It felt awesome.

After lifting the heavy weight my body felt wicked light so my jump ended up being much higher than normal. This phenomenon is called post-activation potentiation and you can learn more about it HERE.
