In this article I «challenge» you to finish my 5 CrossFit Workouts with Dumbbells. The only equipment: a pair of dumbbells.
«To have two dumbbells is to have a treasure»
This is how many fitness enthusiasts in recent weeks will have felt.
However, once «normality» has been restored and we can train again in the gym, it’s time to get back in shape.
How to do them
Performing your strength or hypertrophy routine, and if you want to introduce a new boost to kickstart your performance or metabolic conditioning, or simply «burn» more calories, it’s perfect.
What do we need?
I mentioned it at the beginning: a pair of dumbbells; the hexagonal and rubber type are recommended.
Although if you have iron ones, no worries, it’s more authentic!
It’s quite likely that after a period of home training, where these fitness tools have been your companions and with which you’ve created a special bond, you’ll want to continue enjoying them.
Well, that’s the emotional part. Now I’ll explain the technique.
Crossfit or WODS workouts are based on high intensity exercise. In them, an important component is the power we are able to transmit.
If you’ve always liked some of CrossFit’s most popular WODS, but haven’t done a «snatch» or «clean and jerk»; using the dumbbells we can «experience» these same sensations with the technique or execution of the movement being a little more accessible to most.
