Josh Everett's "KING KONG"

Anyone seen Josh do this yet? It's the video on the CF mainsite for 10/21/8.

He does more than the Rx'd weight and nails it in 2:31

The man. The Myth. The legend. Freak of Nature. Call him what you will... This is one of the coolest CF videos I've ever seen. That level of fitness is simply unattainable for most humans, especially at 5'9", 185.

Just crazy...

If you still check the boards Josh, KING KONG officially doesn't have **** on you

Re: Josh Everett's "KING KONG"

King Kong is a ***** next to Josh.

On the topic of Josh, though... I've been wondering for the past few weeks, are there any relations between Josh and Greg Everett? Because I haven't heard any mention of it...

No relation. Wouldn't that be a dominate brotherly duo...

Heheh, yeah.

Weird, though. Since they both have such similar backgrounds in a way. With their CrossFitting and oly bias... It really wouldn't have surprised me if they were brothers. Plus, they look pretty similar when you think about it.

I've never heard either of them mention the other one, though, so it makes sense there's no relation.

Re: Josh Everett's "KING KONG"

My jaw was on the floor after that one. the deadlifts and muscle ups are the only thing in that workout that I would be able to complete... and I am almost 50 lbs heaver than josh and 7 inches taller.

Yeh iv got 20lbs on him aswell, what a freak....He has the effecient muscle. Would be interesting to know time of other CF elite, kallipa,opt etc. I know they'v all got strengths and weaknesses, but would be good to know if they've even attempted it.

And that was after snatches and clean/jerks.

I heard he pretty much sticks with olumpic work and wods?

Re: Josh Everett's "KING KONG"

Josh is definitely the man. Those cleans looked like a breeze.

Re: Josh Everett's "KING KONG"

It had the same feel to me as when I was watching CF videos for the first time - Impossible! Josh is the Man!
