Damn, apparently Ilya Ilin is joining Klokov on his east coast US seminar tour, NY, PA, and next North Carolina. And from the videos posted, it looks like Ilin is actually spending a lot of time teaching and helping people. Wish I had the money and time to attend.
Yes, I agree with this sentiment in general. People should be proud of improving themselves. Most of us started as tiny DYEL phaggots with dreams to be big and strong and making those improvements is tremendously motivating. I still remember the first time I pulled 225 pounds; now I regularly power snatch that much.However, what ticks me off is people slamming plates when they just PR a 135lb bench, or throwing weights when they just curled 40lb for a set. Hell, I've heard...
That's the killer. Most Crossfit gyms have pretty sick equipment... tons of bars, racks, bumpers, squat stands, plates, etc. But there are not many that will just allow you to go in on your own and do whatever you want-- unless you're a Crossfit icon or coach. I've tried, when I go home for holidays, to see about using the local Crossfit gym to do weight lifting for a week or so, but the standard response is "You can buy a package of 10 classes for $150" or some shit like...
3 yeas ago I dipped under 170 for a brief time. My friends and family thought I was literally dying.
300 lb bench press in the books. It was a grinder through the middle, but otherwise my spotter said it looked solid: kept the ass on the bench, feet on the floor, and even hands on the way up. Now maybe a squat PR next week before gorging myself on Thxgiving?
Jeez, that Angie Varona looks like a cartoon character with such a ridiculous bust/waist/hip ratio.I've dropped a snatch (or two) on my neck/back So has Olympic medalist Matthias Steiner:and pretty much anyone who has ever missed a near-PR attempt at the snatch. Most of the time you can dump without making a fool of yourself, but every once in a while you find yourself in a position where you're just along for the ride. Granted, I never got pulled along the ground by the...
I used to do that until I did this:And saw the best strength and mass gains in my life.If you're busting your ass in the gym, you don't really need to worry about getting excessively fat, just a little fluffy. Then when you cut with more LBM than before, it'll be a piece of cake.
Choked back a mouth full of vomit after a big squat set today. Deeeelicious! Also, I think I may get a cheap video camera to take to the gym so that, in addition to filming myself, I can film some of the fools doing stupid crap, like the dude doing the WORST bent over rows I have ever seen: back all loose and curved, he was basically pulling his torso down to the barbell instead of pulling the weight up.
As much as I dislike snatch grip deadlifts, I'm seeing some good carry-over to squats in keeping the entire back super tight and strong. I guess that's why Klokov likes them so much. I'm planning to include SGDL with more prominence, instead of as an after-thought assistance exercise. Started today with 180kg for 3 sets of 5 after hang cleans... watch out Dmitry, I'll be repping 250kg soon!!!
What kind of video are you hoping to see? Squats? Snatches? Cleans? Jerks?I posted motion pictures from my very first competition in summer 2012. But no one I know has film of my two meets since then, and I have never taken video of training sessions.
