“The Bear Complex”

Mainsite demo video…   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WOP9J7QPwI

7 sets per round. 5 rounds for total load. Not for time.

1 set is = power clean, front squat, push press, back squat, push press

No resting the bar on the ground during a round (even to re-grip). Rest as needed between rounds. Every clean starts at the ground and finishes at full hip extension, squats have to go below parallel and presses have to finish locked out overhead. The squats and presses can be distinct or combined into thrusters. You cannot receive the clean in a squat and go directly into the thruster, stand first. There is not a time component to this wod. It is performed for total load. The idea is that you start lighter and work your way up to a maximal load adding weight each round. 5 rounds, 5 increases in weight. Keep track of weights used to calculate final score. Final score is 35 reps per round times weights used times 5 rounds.
