In this interview with Jordan Gravatt, Big Moe reflects on the Games and talks about his training since he came home from Aromas. Kelsey believes the competition highlighted some of his weaknesses, so he’s been working hard on snatches, muscle-ups and handstand push-ups.
A “recovering bodybuilder,” Kelsey finished 28th in the run that opened the Games and has competed as a triathlete, giving the 6’2”, 225-lb. athlete more stamina than you might expect from a big man.
As a first responder, Kelsey never knows what emergency he’ll be dispatched to, and he never knows when a titanic run at Fran will be interrupted by the siren. Coming down from a high-intensity state to make calm, calculated decisions under pressure requires physical and mental toughness, and Kelsey proved he has both at the 2009 CrossFit Games.
