Quick Tip for How to Hold The Dumbbells in 17.2 CrossFit Open Workout

Make the walking lunges as efficient as possible in Crossfit Open Workout 17.2 and save energy for the other exercises.

Watching Ro vs Boz in CrossFit Open Workout 17.2, they both made sure to rest the dumbbells on their shoulders rather than holding the dumbbells off to the sides (think the usual finishing position for the dumbbell cleans) during the walking lunges. On one occasion Boz set off with the dumbbells in the later position, and almost lost his balance. He re corrected himself, set the dumbbells back on his shoulders and set off again with much more stability. Check out the photos below for this helpful technique.

 In line with the movement standards set by CrossFit, you MUST keep your hands gripped at all times on the handle of the dumbbell to avoid any no reps!

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
