Carry the load!
When one is called to demonstrate feats of strength outside the CrossFitting Arena, it is not often that one is allowed the luxury of simply picking an object up and placing it back down. Typically, the object must be moved vertically (the lift) and then horizontally (brought/thrown to another location). This is a skill that can and must be practiced not only for it's practical application, but for the unique training stimulus it provides.
Commonly, implements like sandbags, medicine balls, sleds and tires are used for this purpose, but there's no reason that dumbells and barbells can't be used for the same end. The crew at SFCF today experienced a little of that horizontal mojo.
