Last month I received more inquires about my article than for any other article I've written for the CrossFit Journal. It was significant on several levels. For one thing, I enjoy discussions about dumbbell conditioning and am glad folks are finding the articles useful. It also confirmed my that CrossFit groups are expanding rapidly and that the CrossFit movement is reaching evening deeper into broad fitness circles.
The majority of people who wrote to me asked that I share some other large-group workouts that use dumbbells. As I say over and over in this column, the dumbbell is perfectly suited to the minimalist approach advocated by CrossFit. It is also ideal for both the new athlete and the seasoned veteran and is an excellent tool for those with limited funds and space.
