    King Kong

    I went to an event at a local CF gym here (great gym btw, if you're ever in the phoenix area, check out East Valley Crossfit, owned by August Schmidt). The event was called "Kong Fest".

    Event 1 was a snatch ladder, which I missed, but was told a guy went up to the max 315lb snatch. Impressive, yes, but not as impressive (IMO) as what I'm about to post.

    Fuck. My jaw dropped lower and lower as I watched this dude smoke this heavy metcon. Mad props.

    That looks cool enough, what were the weights on the DL/clean?

    Looking up other videos I think it might actually be 250. For some reason I was thinking 275.

    That's a good job, but why did I think the clean was supposed to be heavier with King Kong?

    I kinda figured they'd be bigger weights too. Still cool though.

    without insulting the entire CF population.. these aren't exactly "big" guys in the definition we picture big guys.

    I'd like to see Rob Orlando do a super King Kong of sorts.. 585 pull, 315 squat clean.. that'd be insane, thought, doubtful he'd take it sub 2:00 like this guy, even with the insane strength.
