Klokov does deadlift/overhead squat workout

I know I enjoy seeing arguably my favourite strength athlete perform crossfit workouts. He may struggle with full range of motion on those overhead squats...but just cool to watch.

Re: Klokov does deadlift/overhead squat workout

Fun to watch.

Interesting on how he approaches the WODs.

Basically a stiff legged deadlift due to the limited knee bend and amazing how he presses the barbell almost behind him instead of above his head. Looks like he could do it all day.

Can't wait to see Klokov competing in the CF Games

I didn't know Oxana Slivenko was a regionals competitor, nice lifting stats for 69 kg girl

Re: Klokov does deadlift/overhead squat workout

She was/is an elite level weightlifter. I think she was an Olympic Medallist. Shows the transfer from that sport to Crossfit. She made Regionals and did fairly well in the European Regional. Be interesting to see how she does with a whole year under her belt.

Re: Klokov does deadlift/overhead squat workout

Dima has stated he likes doing Stiff Leg DL, especially as he gets toward to failure to give him extra strength during his lifts.

He has stated on record that he does a lot of strength work because his technique isn't as good as Akkaev and it keeps his joints healthy. Most other Russian lifters don't work OHP nearly all that much. 3 out of 14 lifters if I remember.

Amazed there's no comments on here about the OHS range of motion. I was so pleased to see the girl kick he's *** with full ROM.

Kind of off the topic of the OP, but, I was nodding in agreement the entire time I was reading that post. I have pretty much the same coaching philosophy - I've never "no repped" somebody in one of my general fitness classes, if it's something simple to fix all it takes is a cue during the workout, if it's something more complex or potentially injurious, sometimes you have to stop the person to fix it.
