Syatt Fitness: The Week in Review (2/1/2015)

by Jordan Syatt February 1, 2015

G’morning and happy Sunday!

There was a ton of excitement in my neck of the woods this past week with me finally achieving my long-time goal of a 4x bodyweight deadlift, starting my brand new training regimen, and enjoying several relaxing snow days courtesy of Juno.

This week was also packed with tons of incredible fitness information and I’ve got it all here for you in this installment of The Week in Review.

Enjoy and have a great Sunday,
