Update 13.04.2014: Meanwhile in Iceland … Dmitry Klokov visited CrossFit Reykjavik for a seminar. Together with former Crossfit games champion Annie Thorisdottir he gave the Crossfit benchmark workout “Isabel” another go. 30 reps “Ground to Overhead” (this time he chose Power Snatches) for time with 105kg in 3:35.
Thanks to reader Stephen who submitted a couple of videos from a Dmitry Klokov Seminar. Send in your seminar exercise videos and I’ll add them to the post. Thanks to Stas for the Cliff notes.

Next stop in Dmitry Klokov’s World Domination Tour is Brussels. We have seen this particular variation a lot in the past, but I think this weight is a PR for him. In the video below he mentions that his best in this exercise is 190kg. 185kg Snatch with a 3s pause at the knees. Brute Strength! Also […]

He also gets a 270kg Snatch Grip Deadlift (at 17:20) in his usual (almost) stiff legged version. Read more about why he stiff legged deadlifts so […]

In December the himself, Ilya Ilyin joined the crew for the Long Island seminar (video below). To those of you who attended, How did you like it? What did you learn? […]
