Is he on the US team? Toby Whelan January 7, 2010 - 6:33 am The 225lb squats without a sweat is awesome. Then she’s doing it on the balance ball platform, impressive. Mike January 7, 2010 - 9:03 am Toby beat me to it, except I would put an expletive that starts with “f” in front of impressive! Guess I’ve got some more gym time to look (not) forward to. Matus January 7, 2010 - 12:55 pm Reminds me of Rocky vs. that Russian guy training methods. I.e. gym vs training in the pure and wild nature. BTW, that couch has a foreign accent – where is he from? I tried to stand on the balance ball and I was surprised that it is really possible to stand on it. 25 seconds… 🙂 Ben W January 7, 2010 - 7:16 pm Here are a couple videos of 2 time Olympian Eva Twardokens destroying crossfit workouts: http://tinyurl.com/yelrojg http://tinyurl.com/yexpfw3 Rob P January 8, 2010 - 6:05 pm The plates on the squats were 5kilo bumper plates, which are all the same size. She had 40 kilos, which is 88 pounds plus the bar, which is 45 totaling 133lbs, not 225. Additionally the ball squats would be more impressive on a solid surface instead of on a mat which prevents the ball from rolling. Her foreign coach is ingrained with a lot of oldschool mentality. Granted she’s having awesome results, from a professional her workout is fairly pedestrian. Mike January 9, 2010 - 10:25 am Four plates total = 20 kg or 44 lbs + bar (45 lbs.) = 89 lbs. My ego feels MUCH better now! scottyb January 9, 2010 - 11:59 am Shes haught! Lou January 9, 2010 - 3:03 pm Sitting here in the SLC airport waiting for flight, it occures to me that perhaps Vonn’s workout includes cool stuff that’s top secret? Agree that some of the workout is fairly expected, such as the squats and sled pull. The video could be better, but it’s pretty cool to see what the human body can do. SB January 10, 2010 - 10:18 pm @Mike, Don’t relax your ego yet, just because she doesn’t do it in the video, doesn’t mean Vonn can’t squat 225. I’d be surprised if she can’t do a little better than that. Mikey January 11, 2010 - 5:14 pm Lindsey is definately fit and looking good. I think those are bumper plates they look heavier than they are. No doubt she is in awesome shape! Karen January 17, 2010 - 9:15 pm Well gentlmen, let’s think about this it’s a promo thing for her sponor they want her to look good while in their clothes. I’m thinking she looks a little to nice for it to be a serious workout. One more thing, she is a world champ and a possible gold medal winner, what level do you compete at? She could kick our collective arses anytime, give the lady the respect that should be given! Comments are closed.
