At Diablo CrossFit, they use their HD projector for CrossFit videos, UFC fights, etc. Very cool . . . or a photo that makes us look like a cult?
The Dumbbell Bear
Perform the following complex every minute, on the minute, for 20 minutes
5 Dumbbell Deadlifts
5 Dumbbell Hang Power Cleans
5 Dumbbell Thrusters
Post load and rounds completed as rx'd (within the minute) and any additional rounds completed within the time frame to comments.
Loading is 45% bodyweight for advanced athletes. This version of "The Bear" was made popular by coach Mike Rutherford. If you are able to complete all the rounds, first start scaling up until you can do the weight as rx'd, then begin to add one rep to the circuit. 7 reps of the complex for 20 rounds as rx'd is the gold standard.
