Hi all. Gorilla just posted in his exercise journal about an exercise routine called the Bear Complex, and I was wondering if anyone here had heard of it or what everyone's thoughts are. It seems like a legitimate way to get your power-lifting exercises done. Any drawbacks?
....I'm talking about the bear complex
"The bear complex is a sequence of barbell movements that flow together in a natural progression.
The movements are (in order):power clean
, front squat
, push press
, back squat
, and another push press
... all resting and re-gripping must be done with the barbell off the ground."
there are loads of videos of the Bear complex out there.
here's one of them - he does an extra push press before the back squat on one of reps but generally it's a good video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Laa7BJHJWrw&feature=related
All I want to do is train, focusing on these complex movements! ...
There's also the super bear complex
His form isn't perfect on the overhead squat
He does Romanian Deadlifts as well, which I also do ....
