What’s a bear complex, you ask?
It’s a barbell complex that consists of 5 rounds of 7 sets of the following sequence:
You can’t set the barbell down until each round is complete. Rest as needed between rounds, but keep increasing the load on the barbell until you find your max. Your score is the max weight with which you were able to complete a full round.
It sounds easy until you realize that this complex consists of 175 lifts in total.
