"No one is smarter, stronger, or better than you can become."
Favorite tool to train with: Barbell
Favorite grip strength exercise: Heavy cleans
How much chalk they use: We use chalk all day, erryday. Good grip is vital to Olympic lifting.
Why VIKN: We feel like we personify the brand, especially with Chris being a direct descendant of Ragnar Lothbrok, one of the most notorious and feared Vikings. Chris is basically a Viking with a barbell for an ax. But we also feel like it is a product that lines up really well with our followers and athletes and the needs they have as CrossFitters and Olympic Lifters. Such a small thing as chalk can make or break your lift. How cool is it that there is a chalk company with such a great brand?!
