Hey Everyone, it's Julie from CrossFit FYR in Slidell, Louisiana. Today, I'm going to guide you through the Man Maker exercise.

The man makers are a very popular CrossFit exercise. In this instructable, I will show you step by step how to do man makers with dumbbells with proper technique.

Before I get started, below are 3 important man maker tips to help prevent injury and promote proper technique.

  • Abs remain tight throughout exercise
  • Maintain a flat back
  • Keep Dumbbells close to body at all times

Step 1: Start Position

First, start in a standing position with a dumbbell in each hand. Lower dumbbells down to ground.

Step 2: Pushup Position

Position body into a pushup position.

Step 3: Chest to Floor

Bring the chest to the floor (chest to deck) and perform a pushup.

Step 4: Arm Row

Once the pushup is complete, lift one arm up into a row and lower it down. Then, do the same movement with the other arm.

Step 5: Feet Inward

Bring both feet inwards with a wider base than the dumbbells.

Step 6: Squat Clean Thruster.

Next, go into a full squat clean thruster.

Step 7: Final Position

Finally, push up and lock out elbows with active shoulders.

Step 8: Closing Thoughts

I hope you learned how to do man makers with dumbbells from this article and video.
