CrossFit Majors tried not to push CrossFit into the mainstream, but gave us its first taste of global recognition. The site broke the “mindless bro fad” with its X-rated course descriptions, often pithy lists of credo’s and an orthodoxy that promised this was something completely different from any form of lifting or cardio-fitness surrended by most. It was this promise it held out against the numerous pop aerobic gurus who wanted to capitalize on CrossFit’s massive popularity to make money whilst making no sense whatsoever.
CrossFit’s core belief is “constant self-improvement.” Its fitness mantra is that there are no easy wins in the gym . Instead, every session sees you overstepping your personal boundaries in some manner – whether through barbells or weights , boxes or bands , screws or chisels, medicine balls or kettle bells .

What Is Overhead Lunges With Plate? Crossfit?
Overhead press with a barbell is one of the best exercises for the upper body, particularly for shoulders. And to make it even better, you can use a weighted plate or dumbbells to add resistance into your exercise. The goal is to raise the weight overhead while keeping the exact same movement pattern—meaning arms moving in a straight line out in front, rather than bending at the elbow and lowering down. This makes it more challenging without adding extra stress on your shoulder muscles. Try this exercise. If you’re not sure about executing an overhead press with weight plates or dumbbells, try using just bodyweight first. I don’t have any fitness gear so I can lift heavier weights relatively easily with little effort—especially when combined with dips! To give you guidance on how heavy that should be related to your strength level, here are some great lifter numbers: ~127 lbs (55kg) for men and 68 lbs (30kg) for women. If you need light weights then start light enough that if you mess up you still have time to fix it before dropping another pound onto the bar/dumbbells/plates. If done properly these movements mimic what happens during an Olympic lift such as clean and jerk such that most lifters who do them correctly (i.e., technique correct) will end up with decent looking lifts after doing repetitive sets of reps over time (on both sides). But most people never do them
