What are the best crossfit exercises to do with only a dumbbell or barbell?
I only have bars. I can do pretty much everything. Some of the toughest workouts don't involve any bars/weights, just time. Time adds a factor most people never consider. Go to crossfit.com and read the forums there. Crossfit doesn't require much equipment at all.
short answer: Squats, cleans, mil press, overhead squats, DLs, etc.
shorter answer: everything that's worth doing.

There's no such thing as a "crossfit exercise." They use the same things everyone else does: squat, deadlift, lunge, press, pull, cleans, snatches, etc.
Off the topic of training, but on the topic of Crossfit - Why are there links to articles about the war in Iraq and Islam interspersed throughout the WODs?..
A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook
