8 Underused Exercises CrossFit Athletes Need to Include More in Their Training

Snatches, burpees, wall balls, toes to bar, DU etc are all common in Crossfit workouts all around the world. But what less well known exercises should you be including in order to get stronger and counter imbalances?

8. Straight bar dips

If you don’t have ring dips yet, straight bar dips are the perfect progression. With more stability than rings, straight bar dips will help you build the upper body strength necessary to eventually tackle the rings. 

They key to fitness is keeping an open mind and leaving no stone unturned in your training.

These exercises might not seem that glamorous and you’ll probably never do them in competition, but that doesn’t make them any less valuable to your overall fitness. It’s the little things done behind the scenes that will allow you to do the big things that much better. 

Stay Strong,
