It’s a “Bear” of a Workout
The Bear Complex is an intense barbell complex that can be used to help build strength and conditioning.
The Bear Complex consists of 5 barbell exercises Power Clean, Front Squat, Push Press, Back Squat,Push Press. Perform back to back without resting. Each exercise flows into the next.
You start by power cleaning a barbell off the ground. With the barbell now resting at shoulder level perform a front squat. The third exercise in the Bear sequence is the push press. Using momentum, press the barbell over you head and lower it back down in a controlled manner to the back of your shoulders. From this position you will perform a back squat. After the back squat, perform one more push press, returning the bar to the front of your body and then back to the ground.
Perform this circuit 7 times without stopping. You may rest in between rounds;After each round add weight working up to your heaviest during the final round – round 5.
