Dmitry Klokov CrossFit Tabata Part 1

My name is Dmitry Klokov.I'm from Russia and I'm a World Champion, European Champion,Silver Medalist of Olympic Games in 2008. My snatch PR in competition, official competition,international competition is 196 kilos. And in training in gym 206 kilos is my bestsnatch. I like Tabata Songs. I remember your firstTabata Songs. This was very good music and when I made my tutorial for my YouTube channelit was this Tabata Song, where a lot of people, Russian people, asked what is, what is themusicé What is the name of this musicé And this was interesting, yeah.

I love it. (Tabata music begins playing) Welcome to tabata. Here we go in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, Go. Tabata. This is twenty seconds works and ten seconds break and again. Eight rounds. This is cardio for me (laughs). This looks like weightlifting exercise but this is cardio for me. I started weightlifting December 10, 1995. I was 13.

CrossFit changed the weightlifting world alot. A lot. Totally. Uh, because before this was not popular sport,this Olympic sport but not really popular because, uh, it is dangerous, it is difficult. And now when CrossFit is popular weightlifting is now popular too.Because CrossFit, this is weightlifting too. This is like maybe sixty percent of CrossFituh is weightlifting exercise. And of course people try. My body all ready for lift for one rep max. But doing something like more than one minute(laughs) is crazy. All of us think about like dreams. That's good.But demand maximum.

For example when I train I believe for the future I will be Olympic champion. But my maximum was silver. Demand the impossible maximum result. is what I mean. Same in your normal life.

Then in 2009 to 2010 I thought I'd try something different.

Nothing against my old coach I justwanted something different to do and I worked with a guy named Dan Pfaff and I always felt like if you ever work with another coach you should at least give him two years to see if everything like, it takes you time to learn stuff and get into the swing of things. After that coach left in 2009 that's whereI was at in 2010 like I donít really know what to do. I got motivated again. Decided to go back to my oldcoach from 2000 to 2008.
