Join Mikko Salo, the 2009 CrossFit Games champion, on his road trip across America—but this trip isn’t quite the same as the CrossFit Journal’s last Road Trip with Dave Lipson, Rob Orlando and Dave Castro. A man of few words, Salo is rarely distracted from his quest to better his training.
Today’s stop is Columbus, Ohio, home of Rogue Fitness and 2010 Games Champion Graham Holmberg. In Rogue’s warehouse gym and test facility, Salo and Holmberg push each other to better prepare for the next Games.
“If you want to get better, you need to train with somebody that’s better than you,” Holmberg says.
“That’s the main reason for my trip: to train with the best guys,” Salo says.
So who’s the best? We’ll find out at the 2011 CrossFit Games.
