Below: Justin, a member of CFCC’s PhillyFit program completes a dumbbell clean. Whether you are pulling a barbell or a dumbbell the positioning is the same – the big difference here is that in cleaning with dumbbells you will be made to be more aware of which arm is pulling less or more than the other – and your brain will eventually even out your recruitment patterns. This is a good thing and one of the MANY of the reasons that PhillyFit is a program that can challenge even the most experienced of athletes. Single arm and single leg work is a daily part of the program and an integral part of the goal of this part of CFCC – PhillyFit aims to create a well-balanced athlete: balanced strength, pure conditioning, and mobility are the biggest priorities of this program. If you or a friend are interested in trying PhillyFit out don’t forget you can drop-in to Saturday sessions at 12pm for $20 with no other prior experience AND you can always check out what the PhillyFit-ers are up to here.
