Re: BEAR complex

I did this today working up to 135# this was an awful/amazing WOD, just gutting it out was enough for me forget timing or AMRAP haha.

That video is from a while ago...it was good to see again. Today's supposed to be a rest day for me, but that video really stirs up the sick desire to join in the pain.

Is it possible to be tempted by something you know will only end in pain at best?

haha I am with you.. I couldn't really imagine cranking round after round for AMRAP, the movements alone 7 times, for 5 rounds are fairly tiring even with a halfway light weight.

Re: BEAR complex

The first variation posted of this WOD back in 2003 had an overhead squat after the last push press. There weren't many takers back then.
