It’s a series of movements, usually on the order of 6-10, with no rest between each movement. In essence, you’ll pick up a barbell or a pair of dumbbells and you won’t put the weight down until all movements are finished.

Grab one of these, but NO weight plates needed:


So here’s a COMPLEX that I like from Jason Feruggia, fellow CPT…

“For those of you who’ve never done complexes, get ready for a whole new in-the-gym experience!” says Jason Ferruggia.

The goal of this complex is speed. Start a timer and perform it once through, 6 reps for every movement. The next time you perform it, try to beat that time.

Guys start with a 45 lb bar. Ladies start with 25 lb bar, or a pair of light dumbbells for this one.

After a few workouts and improved times, add load.


Hang Clean

Front Squat

Hang Snatch

Overhead Squat

Front Press

Bentover Row

Romanian Deadlift

Will you step up your game and give this COMPLEX a try sometime? This particular complex is just one example. There are many, and I encourage you to look into them. They beat the heck out of that piece of cardio equipment you always use 😉

Please post your times, loads, and comments below.

Be Well,
