Syatt Fitness: The Week in Review (12/7/2014)

by Jordan Syatt December 4, 2014


I hope you’re having a fun and relaxing weekend.

I’m currently on vacation in New Orleans with my girlfriend celebrating her 24th birthday (I’m a sucker for older women) and so far it’s been an absolute blast. 

From night-time steam boat cruises to praline bacon (holy hell this stuff should be illegal) and extraordinary jazz…this is a trip I’ll never forget. 

Here we are right before our Friday night dinner cruise

Fortunately, this past week was filled with tons of incredible fitness information so I’ve got a boat load of articles for you in this installment of The Week in Review.

1 Powerful Mind Trick to Help You Stay on Track with Your Diet Forever

Quickly turning into one of my most popular articles ever written, in this short piece I discuss a simple, effective, and powerful mind trick that will drastically improve your ability to stay on track with your diet. 

Ever have trouble sticking to a diet in the long-term?

You need to read (and share) this article.

Coaches: Stop Chasing “Perfect!”

“Perfect” posture.

“Perfect” movement.

“Perfect” technique.

They all sound great, in theory, but they don’t exist. Whatever constitutes “perfect” depends on the individual, how they’re built, their current skill level, etc.

Coaches can either chase a short sighted view of “perfect” for everyone (and be sorely disappointed) or they can recognize the differences inherent to each individual, modify accordingly, and see extraordinary success.
