We outdone ourselves today
It’s 9 a/m and we already in the gym You’re not the only ones who watch my videos during breakfast,lunch or dinner My head coach watches videos too having breakfast While I was sitting and surfing the net between my sets A guy came in and approached me and said that he watched yesterday’s video and found out that I love beef jerky And he told me that this one is better and presented it to me Thank you very much! When I started my channel 2 years ago, my first argument was the fact that I should be close to people Cause no one knows about weightlifters, nor sponsor,nor fans We’re sitting in enclosed space and lift big weiths – that’s it! That’s why the stereotype is that builders,powerlifters and weightlifters are stupid Cause we’re not close to people, they don’t know our personalities, they only know us as athletes on TV It’s different in US They always have fan meetings And today, 1 day before the competition we’re having that meeting And it’s first time I’m visitiong this kind of event, so I want to see the organisation of it Everyone’s already here I immediately understand that team equipment should be for sale This is very interesting idea for those who sell sportswear on comps or some events You just need rack and barbell and that’s it! Our team shirts here And I saw this only in the movies when they have tables where fans can ask questions, take signature and pics with athletes As I said I saw that only in movies That’s the major fan Here’s the queue It looks like everything’s going to be alright tomorrow, judging by happiness of our head coach But who knows, we’ll see! And here are girls having fun I’ll show you all of our team girls for the first time They love to show off muscles, they love it! They do immediate pics for fans to sign on place Balloons are all over the place as we’ve already won
It’s too early for that kind of mood One day before we had WL comps everyone was very serious, but here it’s all about positivity Maybe that’s the difference between CrossFit or GRIF and Olypmpics,cause Olympics is the major purpose of your life And Crossfit or GRID is more of a show sport Cause as Alec,whose brother Ben won 2015 Crossfit games, said on 2nd part of these series, Olympics are more honorable and respectable His last words was that it’d change soon, but I doubt that I doubt that,cause they’re different sports and you can not compare them That’s how we were preparing all these 5 days and you will see the result tomorrow at competition I have to leave something in memory of all this Punish me! I told you we’re having fun The day that we were striving for has arrived
It’s competition day I wouldn’t say that I’m very anxious Unlike before my WL comps where I was fighting with it
It’s OK now We’ll see what the day will bring to us I made some bomb and supersweet drink Cause after high reps the sugar level is down and it feels dizzy So I think it’d helpful, I’m more than sure that it’d be helpful 2nd match start is in 2,5 hours
Let’s roll! It’s nice and cool here, would be easier to breath Cause it was too hot at 1st match It’s beautiful as always! I’m sure that we’ll have the same back home Otherwise no one would be doing that stuff I wonder when I’ll start to feel anxious?
22 minutes left unitl match and I’m feeling some butterflies already I ask myself why I’m worried? Probably cause I always want to do my best, so that’s the reason And,of course, I want to win Answering questions about how americans feel about Russia, look! Is this logo familiar to you?
I think most of weightlifters know this logo It’s already for sale in US Match’ll start now in 2,5 minutes I don’t feel anxious,cause I’m turnt up and then I’ll be horrified after 1st race,cause there’ll be 10 more of them We lost 1st race We lost 2nd race It doens’t matter what your result is, team’s result matters here and it’s major difference between team and individual sport And it’s one of few things that are difficult for me here Cause I’m used to being responsibe for myself and here whether you win or lose, it’s team And all of members share victory and defeat together
And it’s cool! 3rd race It’s our turn now Let’s roll! I have no energy to talk You remember when I was doing the same snatch and clean complex I looked much better than now
That’s what I told you gonna happen Do you remember 2 happy guys in interview?
Here I’m the one and here’s another He’s accustom to it And I feel like shit! He feels like shit
That’s the only thing he knows in russian Clean ladder will start in 6 minutes It’s OK! I was happy that competition is over for me and threw my wraps and WL shoes to fans I was so turnt up that forgot that I didn’t take any extra shoes to the gym It’s OK!
I have no injuries, but this girl got one I want to thank that girl,she’s our masseur I didn’t get any injuries cause of her, she did her best It’ OK! Guys, when you saw me massaging this girl in previous videos you probably thought that I’m flirting, but she’s just my good friend She’s very good,cause she does her job and helps everyone else That’s the kind of person that if she would have been doing Olympic sport she could be an Olympic champion She’s unbelieveable women
I mean girl You can see how I felt this time by this bottle that I showed you before
I felt OK this time Exercises were easy Don’t look down when you do some exercise
Look how he’s wobbling all over the place Here’s another one
Why in the hell you look down,damn it?! We lost 2nd match
That’s the sport, someone wins and someone loses Again, I never did team sport so I don’t know what are the principles of team sport But since I got into it, I’m very interested in it now I want to learn it through friends, through more team competitions, any way I want to know how it works – tactics,strategy,psychology Individually they’re good athletes, but as a team it didn’t work out and I don’t know why Thanks for watching!
Now we’re going to press-conference and then have after-party and all the things that we’re good at Let’s go give an interview У меня первый вопрос: почему мы опять проиграли? “Нам нужно больше тренироваться!” You guys heard the answer of head coach on why we lost We need more practice! We was working out for 7 hours in the gym what did he mean by more practice?!
10 hour practices? I don’t know
We’re going to eat. It’s OK!
