2008 CrossFit Games champion, Jason Khalipa took fifth place at this year's Games. The 27-year-old competitor trains with fellow Games athlete, Neal Maddox.
Along with upping the volume in his training, Khalipa says, "I've spent a lot of time working on what I suck at. And when I say a lot of time, I mean I've spent a lot of time."
"I feel confident that all of that will pay off," he adds.
The 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games will re-air on ESPN2 starting Dec. 16.
