As you progress with the dumbbell iron cross, you will find that it requires a significant amount of endurance to perform multiple reps.

High intensity: The dumbbell iron cross can be considered a high-intensity exercise, depending on how it is performed, making it a challenging exercise that can increase heart rate and build muscle. To make the exercise more intense, you can use heavier weights, perform it at a faster pace, or incorporate it into a circuit training routine. However, it is important to make sure you have proper form and control before increasing the intensity, as improper form can lead to injury. It’s also a good idea to start with lighter weights and gradually increase the weight as you build up your strength.
