Rogue Vs AF Tahoe Throwdown

Roundtable in Tahoe: Lipson on the Spot

Rob Orlando pressures his friend Dave Lipson to train outside his comfort zone.

With some of CrossFit’s top athletes in Lake Tahoe, Calif., for the Rogue Vs. Again Faster Throwdown, it was a great opportunity to throw the athletes into a room and get them talking with the cameras rolling.

In the first installment, Rob Orlando puts his buddy Dave Lipson on the spot and asks the brutally strong athlete when he’s going to start training his weaknesses.

Lipson, who’s know for a deadlift well over 600 lb., explains how it’s challenging to go outside of the comfort zone and potentially fail. To get him over that hump, Lipson has hooked up with people who will keep him accountable and push him to address his weaknesses.

Lipson’s plan for the upcoming competition season: “This year, I’m not going to train like a douchebag.”

“I’m not going to train like a douchebag.” would be a great tag line for t-shirts for Dave's new gym, CrossFit Solana Beach
