Smiling ear to ear when Gary got that muscle up.
Great Job Gary I've really enjoyed seeing your progress and know where you're coming from as I used to be 315#s and after taking a look in the mirror one day and deciding that I didn't want to look like that anymore dropped to 250#s and feel like I'm in the best shape of my life.
100all time greatest photos and not a single wrestling photo....pathetic
The 100 greatest american photos, the world is a big place guys...
How cool and special do see you again, Man you have motivated myself to start crossfit, you don't know how I relate myself with your videos, my first muscle up, what a "glory"..., now I'm really frustrated I have just torn my biceps... and will have to slow down my progress in cf, maybe my chance to focus in other weaknesses.
Keep with your good work man.., you are great guy
My Christmas wish come true -- Gary Roberts is back!
Was glad to see Valvano in the 100 greatest photos, but I would have found the shot where he is bounding across the court looking for someone to celebrate with: emblematic of life. "What happiness lacks in length, it makes up in height".

steiner's accident was the only weightlifting photo to make si's 100 greatest? no wonder america sucks at weightlifting.
photo that should have been Elizabeth A. holding that orange hammer.
CrossFIt Industrious!!! The hammer and axe all day!!! So stoked. Happy holidays to all you hard working people.
Congrats gary. Cutting back and forth to the muscleup footage was great. all of the KTFM videos are epic and super motivational.Strange voyeur camera work at the end of this one?
Yeah, I would have been shooting that the whole time... You would have just been a nice VoiceOver...
KTFM bout effing time. I hope to god there is an update and not just the rest of the other part. Dont' drop the ball please.
Heck Yeah!! Washington representin
Yeah Washington state rocks!!
Awesome photos, but missing THE original American sport, lacrosse
"Killing the Fat Man" by Stewie Griffin.
Best muscle up ever! Way to go!
Deficit Push-ups 45# plate
Abmat Sit-up 45# plate
Working on my Jerk and can't seem to find the answer to my problem. Trying to rack elbows high as Chad Vaughn suggests, but i get choked by the bar. I have really long forearms and hands. Is this a flexibility issue or anatomical (wide grip same result).
Made this one from different workouts.
Bench Press 5x3 185-195-195-195-205
Weighted Walking lunge 5 each leg. 5 sets at 55.
Superset the two movements
Then for time:
Dumbbell Push Press (55/25) used 50's
Back Squat (155/95) used 145
Muscle Up scaled to 5-4-3-2-1
I think only one other person I train actually completed this workout, it sucked lol.
I know that license plate! The Axe and Hammer all day CrossFit Industrious!
I honestly thought Gary had popped his shoulder out on those muscle up fails... But well done on sticking at it! Well done bro welcome to the club

He'll be blowing me away as soon as he learns that kip better.
I also finally got a pair of rings in the mail! :) Now I can start bringing them to my gym to use them!
My ten yr old son jumped on our homemade rings and tried to get a muscle up after we watched Gary get his muscle up :)
Did he make it -- see, now thats how you keep the next generation motivated!!!
Could this be Fran's car? Or maybe it's Diane's.
I was so excited to see another Killing the Fat Man Episode, but that one wasn't nearly as engaging as the rest of the series. I'm incredibly impressed with Gary's transformation, but the rambling just went on and on. And what's with shooting the scenery rather than redirecting him with another question? Anyway, hope there's a longer term follow-up in the future.
Our family is just getting back into the house this week (had a fire the Saturday before Thanksgiving). The "box" in my garage was a total loss (pull-up bar,dip station, plates, bars, everything), but with everything gone, we get to start over!! Seeing Gary this week was a God send. He was an inspiration for me the beginning of this year, he'll inspire me to keep going into next. Thanks for the series. It embodies Cross Fit's propensity for change and new beginnings.
