Yes, I have seen this video.
It features Dmitry “The Mancrush” Klokov, doing three rounds of “DT” (my personal favorite workout). He makes a mockery of the first two rounds, then looks as though he may go into cardiac arrest during the third.
Here’s something you may not know about it…
The gentlemen directly to Klokov’s left, wearing the black shirt, is named Sion Cousins. He is from Australia, and trains with none other than “The Mayor” himself, Chad MacKay. If you can’t catch a glimpse of his face, here’s a pic of Sion (and his brother), with me at the Sydney training camp):
Sion weighs a svelte 77kg (169#), and has a max Clean & Jerk of 135kg (297#). Not bad for a 77kg exerciser, but 110kg (242#) below Klokov’s best.
Despite the fact that Klokov outweighs Sion by roughly 80#, and out Clean & Jerks him by roughly two Natalie McClain’s, guess who finished the three rounds of “DT” first?
Not Dmitry Klokov.
Dmitry has a new title – The Most Overrated CrossFitter in the World.
