Just off the top of my head I thought of something. I work right in front of the squat rack. Maybe I'll put the bar across the top of the rack, kneel and do pull ups in the middle of the routine.
i do cleans with a barbell first day of my routine and cleans with dumbells the second.
ive read in a few places when using dumbells its a more taxing exercise so you need less weight, and also probably the best overall body strength test
