Complex Training is meant to use preferably a barbell (can use dumbbells if no access to a barbell) where you use the same amount of weight for each exercise. You perform it similar to circuit training where you go through each exercise one time (with the determined amount of reps) with no rests between exercises. Rest 1-2 minuets between sets. Use very low weight if you need to warm up and practice form first.
Complete all 3 complexes.
Complex 1: 6 Reps per Exercise – Perform 4 Sets – Increase weight used each round if possible
If new to this style of training, for the first set use a 45 pound bar with no extra weight on the side, then try to increase 10-20 pounds total each round if capable. These exercises are to be completed back to back with no rest during the round.
COMPLEX: 6 Reps – 4 Sets
1. Upright Row
2. Hang Snatch (Form is very important. Keep the bar close to your body as your bring it up, and stick your head through the lift)
3. Full Front Squat into Overhead Press
