NerdStrong Gym - Another Bear Complex
We are doing a Bear Complex I don't know why they are called a "Bear" complex but I'm sure there is a reason. For this bear complex we did 3 sets of 5 reps, 1 rep consisted of a Clean, Front Squat, Push Press, Back Squat and Behind the Neck Press. We had to increase weight with each set.
I'm fairly efficient at each one of these with exception of Cleans. I'm still having problems with these. But Front Squats, Push Press', Back Squats and Behind the Neck Press' are pretty easy. Of course doing this set five times is rough. I'd take a few minutes rest between sets and then do it all over again.
The "Marla" part of the workout was a 140 meter Kettlebell Farmer's Walk, which we had to do four times. I carried the yellow Kettlebells which are about 27 lbs each. Like with the Bear Complex the first few times were fine but the third and fourth time you're arms are alike jello but you continue to move forward.
For a Finisher Blair like to pull out his favorite TABATA Planking. High, low, left and right planking, 20 seconds of work 10 seconds of rest for eight rounds.
