CrossFit Dumbbell shoulder workouts are a great way to improve strength, balance and unilateral movement. Strong shoulders are essential for a wide variety of CrossFit movements, from toes-to-bars to overhead squats. They will also help you improve your handstand push-ups and enhance your overhead stability for Olympic weightlifting.
Strengthening them with dumbbells is a great way to improve your figure as a CrossFit athlete, as poor performances and possible injury can be direct results of weak shoulders.
“Nobody’s doing enough with dumbbells,” Gregg Glassman once said, and the CrossFit Open has seen their return the last couple of years.
Because of their evenly distributed weight, dumbbells are good tools to focus on strengthening specific areas of your body, such as your shoulders.
