1 Power Clean + 1 Front Squat + 1 Push Press + 1 Back Squat + 1 Push Press (from the back rack)

Every minute athletes will complete one cycle of The Bear Complex. Today’s Bear will be done in true Bear fashion, meaning athletes will segment the above movements i.e. athletes must stand up the power clean before descending into the front squat and they must stand up the front squat before starting the push press.¬†Athletes will perform the above at or very near their seven repetition max Bear Complex. If athletes do not know what weight to choose start at a moderate load and build every minute.
