The famous King Kong workout from Crossfit.
Power Clean x3
Handstand pushups x4
Dave Morgan, for the record, is 44, so he’s something of a senior citizen in the crowd of super-fitsters, but no matter, he figured. Showing his confidence, instead of using the standard of 255 lb. for the clean and 455 lb. for the deadlift, Morgan upped the ante to 275 lb./500 lb., respectively.
Facing a record time of 2.31.47 Morgan ran through the workout in a mere 2.04 and later told IronMind, “I could have done it with 300 lb. and 600 lb.” Take a look at his clip on YouTube and see what you think.
Morgan, who is quick to commend the difficulty of this CrossFit challenge given its demands to be both strong and fit, is no ordinary trainee: Besides being a five-time Commonwealth Games gold medalist in weightlifting and a two-time Olympian in the sport, Morgan’s good at a handful of other lifts and has a history of taking on and succeeding at a range of physical challenges.
Pretty decent considering he isn't a CrossFitter and he actually used decent form on his lifts. Although the YT comments deride him not going low enough on the power clean (which means it was easy for him, not that he didn't do it right).
