CLOSED NEW YEAR’S DAY
Part of Brian’s job is to travel to far-off, hostile places. Places where wearing a gas mask to do your job is sometimes necessary.

11 LESSONS FROM THE RUSSIANS “Last week I had the opportunity to travel to California to attend the Dream Team Clinic (one of the perks of being on Team Juggernaut haha), featuring Dmitry Klokov (you may know him from YouTube), Ilya Ilyin (2x Olympic gold medalist and World Record holder), Vasiliy Polovnikov (9x Russian Champion) and Zygmunt Smalcerz (US OTC coach) at Waxman’s Gym.

(Note: If you’d like to see what Colin Burns has written about check out this youtube video: Dmitry Klokov & Ilya Ilyin-CrossFit LIC
Be advised: Dmitry and Ilya don’t speak very much English and the video is about 30 minutes long. Not all of it is instructional. That said, if you are a fan of weightlifting or strength you’ll enjoy sections of this video! (Thanks Nick, for putting us on point about this video!))–George
