You Need To Watch This Vid
Yeah, on the Games site, it’s titled “Days in the Life of Rich Froning”, but there’s also a good junk of Dan Bailey in there.
Even if you don’t have the time to watch the ENTIRE vid, catch some of it. Skim through parts.
Let’s just get a few things out of the way…first of all, the half-assed face censoring was a waste and made the vid look ridiculous in the beginning. Second, the interviewer was annoying as fuck. Gotta give Rich and Dan props for handling that assclown well. It just shows they’re legit guys.
So yeah, as I was watching this earlier today, I couldn’t help but think about their WORK CAPACITY. Holy shit. It’s one thing to work out multiple times in a day. It’s a whole ‘nother story when you’re dealing with heavy and intense loads every time.
Now that I look back at that post-workout interview at the end of Day 1 of the Central East Regional, Rich was serious about his “rest day” comment. He wasn’t trying to sound like an cocky guy. He wasn’t trying to show off. He was just telling the truth.
Yeah, the edits on that interview (the rewinds, etc.) for the Update show made him seem like an ass. It’s easy to put a lot of emphasis on that one line he said. Now, I believe it. Rich and Dan are truly on another level.
It makes me wonder what the “Silent Assassin” Graham Holmberg does for his training.
For serious…watching this made me want to work out. Gotta wait 12 hours for that…shit…
