Ray Roman 360° Tabata WOD

by Ray Roman in , , , , , ,


Checkout this 360 degree video I recorded, edited, and of course worked out in. It was tough to do all of these back to back with a 5 minute break in-between. I was gassed but in order to be able to capture all angles it had to be done. Due to the current state of technology the 360° video will only be viewable on select desktop browsers and devices.


Ray Roman 20RM Deadlift Attempt at 255lbs

by Ray Roman in , , ,


This is my 20 rep max attempt for the challenge Noah Ohlsen @nohlsen put on Instagram (3/23/15) for the heaviest 20RM deadlift. After warming up and getting close to a one-rep max, I went back down to 255lbs., an amount I thought I might be able to get 20 reps out of but I fell short at 14. I gave it another shot but unfortunately got 6 reps on my second try! This was a fun challenge though because it so happened to be on a day I was deadlifting!

Ray Roman "Rage the Night Away" (11/30/14 Split Jerk PR)

by Ray Roman in , , ,


Attempting to split jerk 225lbs for the first time. When performing the clean I need to work on getting under the bar more and do less pulling with my arms. I felt like I was almost able to get the bar up into the split jerk position but fell short on my attempts.
