“You’ve been warned.” Those are the words that Dave Castro posted to Instagram earlier this morning.
For the first time, the CrossFit Open will feature dumbbells. Castro’s photo shows four sets of dumbbells weighing 50 and 35 pounds, likely the men’s and women’s weights, respectively. Two of the sets are standard dumbbells while the other two feature Rogue’s DB-15 loadable dumbbell with 10, 5 and 2.5-pound change plates.
With the Open beginning in just over three weeks, the hint/warning gives garage athletes and box owners ample time to get the gear necessary to compete in the Open.
To help you out, here are links to the gear you need:
Rogue Fitness Dumbbells ($120 for 50# pair / $72 for 35# pair)
Rogue DB-15 Loadable Dumbbells ($135 for “empty” dumbbells)
Rogue LB Change Plates ($165 for 10, 5 & 2.5# set)
York Dumbbells ($120 for 50# pair / $84 for 35# pair)
Now the biggest question is, how will Castro utilize the dumbbells…
