    how are the front squats….with at least 3 x 20 (could be 4) on each end of an olympic bell….that is so damn strong!!!

    I feel sorry for the bike – the poor thing must need recovery after he’s done with it!

      Crossfit weights are not what they seem! They use bumper plates, so 5s 10s and 20kg plates are all the same size.

      • Ben R

        I also train at CrossFit Mode and looking at the plates on Shane’s front squat in the video, I think he’s doing about 140-150kg. The barbell is 20kg, red plates on the inside are 25kg each, then there are green plates @ 10kg and the yellow ones are 15kg. The shot from behind Shane has the 15kg plates on the end but there is a plate in the middle between the first 25kg plate and the third which I can’t tell the weight of, I’m just going to assume he has 2x 25kg each side, plus a 15kg in the “from behind shot” (so 150kg) and the “from the front” shots would be 140kg (10kg plates on the ends).

    Is it mandatory to not wear a shirt?

    Perko is looking ripped

      To be fair, there’s a camera pointing at them, and they look fit AF. Is it mandatory for us to check out our reflections in shop windows as we roll past? No, but…

      • Training with your shirt off is a “thing” in crossfit. Fortunately cyclists are exempt from that.

        Full disclosure – I’ve gotten hooked on crossfit too. Unless you structure it around your riding like Perko does, it probably won’t make you go any faster. But it got me through a couple years of barely any riding and I was still able to mix it up with my mates when I did ride.

        For those of you who want to mix it up a bit, I couldn’t recommend it highly enough.

          So unlike us, you can probably take off your shirt at the beach and not look like you’ve been living in a prison camp for years. Go CF.

          • Ha! I wish.

          • Chris

            Bah – I ride over 300km per week and don’t look like a prisoner of war.
            The secret is massive overeating.

              And beer. Lots of it. Throw in some recreational drug use and avoiding the waif look so coveted by some is guaranteed.

    • CC

      He’s one big unit, I’m not telling him to put his shirt back on !! -:) like his new slant on training,

  • Bob

    might work provided he doesn’t get Rhabdo

    For someone like Shane, yes it’s great as he knows his body and to keep good form. But it always seems to be bad form and dangerous.
    Good example is this ( obviously, not everyone is this bad).

    • Tim Cheshire

      They are trying to lift like ‘strongman’, up to the belly then up again and press, problem here is that they are just plain crap with no idea of Olympic lifting.

    • These “Crossfit fails” are fun to watch, yes, but I’ve never seen a crossfit instructor push people towards bad form in lieu of trying to lift more or heavier. I’m sure it happens, but it’s the exception, not the norm.

      • Dave

        Poor instruction probably happens less with Crossfit than with the idiots who train people independently (i.e. with no accountability) after filling out a couple of forms and become a “certified” personal trainer.

    • Drmithra
  • Dave

    Good result for Perko tonight, it seems to be working.

  • Fred

    one day cyclists may realise that being physically stronger may solve their performance discrepancies. It’s also great to see muscles on cyclists. Is this the turning point where the average weight in the peloton is above 70kg?
