I have adjustable DBs at home, first piece of gear I ever had. I am not likely to actually do the Open this year but nice to know I could. Although last year the 25' of OH walking lunge would have been a no go at home.

I hope we don't see them because we don't have any at our gym and i suppose allot of homegyms do not have them either.

But i would like to have one, just trying to win over the wife with that one :D

Alex was just going to post that. OH Walking lunge with 50# dumbbells. I gotta get tested on that one.

We do thrusters with the 50's a lot..

They could do ground to overhead with them also.

Who knows?? But this time Im sure that Castro will implement them with that post. That was the biggest clue yet. Making people scramble for them if they don't have access to them and not programming might lose some fans and peeps doing that.

Going to be a tough one with 50s as you said, the trouble is we need to test it "just in case" :mad:

They officially announced the dumbbells:

https://games.crossfit.com/announcement/9908

When the dumbbell is at rest, the bottom of the handle cannot be more than 4 in. off the ground.

Assuming we're snatching if that's a caveat of the dumbbell dimensions.

So we have 3 weeks to become best friends with them

Wonder what they will do with them.
Snatch
Clean and Jerk
OH lunges
OHS squat
Farmer Carry
cleans
hang cleans
hang snatch

Anything else.. Maybe they will have a workout with more than one exercise with the DB's? Once again won't begin to guess whats inside Castro's head.

"Kilogram dumbbells cannot be used by athletes competing in the U.S. or Canada."

WTF?!!
