The use of not only 1 but 2 Pearl Jam songs in this video is almost as bad-ass as your performance. Well done all around, you are a beast!

One of the things I really like about CrossFit is that we have monsters like this in competition with each other without all the trash talk of most sports. The CrossFit elite competitors are also open to giving advice and talking with us regular joes that are still scaling workouts just to get through. CrossFit is indeed a unique community.

Hey Rob O., that is what I am talking about, representing for us little guys here in Connecticut!! I think I am going to have to come up with a wod myself, maybe titled Godzilla!!!

Impressive performance although I do have some comments based on form.

To me he doesn't fully lock out on the deadlift and the muscle ups are started with bent arms. Cleans are VERY nice and the HSPU as well.

I know I might get some heat from this comments but i thought I should say something.
