Meanwhile in London … Dmitry Klokov keeps on putting up high numbers during his seminar world tour. After 190kg Snatches or 190kg Thrusters became a common occurrence, here is a 235kg Rack Jerk.

Blasts from the Past … Here are 100 minutes filled with tons ridiculously massive lifts from the 2004 Russian weightlifting team. If you liked the IronMind videos you’ll love this one. Certainly one of the best lifting videos I have seen. The video starts off with the 2004 Russian Cup. There you will see Dmitry Klokov, Dmitry […]
Dmitry Klokov visted CrossFit Geraklion. That’s the facility where Oksana Slivenko trains at. By the way, Oksana has her own YouTube channel now. First Dmitry toured the place and got his body fat measured. At 110kg he clocked in at 7% body fat. Next was a CrossFit WOD with Oksana. 21-15-9 Deadlift Overhead Squat (100kg+60kg for […]
