Our guest this week is a powerlifter who has pulled three times bodyweight. He’s trained (and interned at Westside Barbell).

Way back in episode #5 of the podcast, we asked Chris Bell to tell us some crazy stories from “The Mecca” – Gold’s Gym in Venice, CA.

When you hear the name “Kevin Ogar” a lot of you are probably thinking, “He’s the guy who got paralyzed doing CrossFit.” That’s not the whole picture, and it’s not even right story. If you’ve seen the video that so many people have seen, well, that doesn’t really tell the whole story either. In January of 2014, Kevin Ogar was injured in a freak accident while bailing on a snatch during the OC Throwdown. The event wasn’t even a CrossFit event, and the snatch that was not even close to his...
