The Bear

WOD The Bear

The bear is what's known as a complex. In other words, you will do a certain sequence of exercises in order to complete one "rep" in this workout. You will complete 7 "reps" in each round, for a total of 5 rounds. Starting Rxd weight is 35/25 and ending weight is on the individual. Goal here is for max loads, not time, so there is no time component. Rest is as needed, but with a catch: If you are in the middle of a round, there is no resting with the bar on the ground. The bar must stay off the ground (however you want to) until that round of 7 complexes has been completed. After the first set of seven is done, you can put the bar down to rest, add weight, and chalk up as needed.This is the complex to be completed:

Power Clean
Front Squat
Push Press
Back squat
Push Press
(Aim to be at MAX load by round 4 or 5)

You can combine the front squat/push press and the back squat/push press into thrusters if you wish, but you must stand in the clean prior to attempting the front squat or thruster. Like I said, 7 reps of the "Bear" per round, 5 rounds total, max loads. Post loads to the comments, and have a great time with it.
