I saw a number of things in Russia that left an impression on me. One of which was this set by World Champion Denis Vasiliev.

Yes, Denis is using 40kg Bells, which is sick. Yes, Denis was one of the first athletes to utilize 40kg Bells in their training, which is sick.

But what was truly sick about this demo isn’t in the video. Denis had WON the European championship in the the Long Cycle with 96 reps using 32kg Bells The NIGHT before this video. He then drove hours to make the last day of our training camp and put on this demo.
