Complexes. Good stuff.

See the August 8th WOD. These guys should pay me royalties!

The bear, what a great exercise. Just a word of advice, ease into it. I've posted Coach Davies's variation of the article on the Bear. Enjoy.

I remember trying the Bear right after I read Davie's article about it.Truly a punishing exercise.

Alternate light-weight Bear with running if you want to cough up a lung.

Hardest CV workout I ever did before I found CrossFit.

So, if I'm looking for real torture, and I am, I would do a set of 5 at a reasonable weight (for me) and cross it with a 400m run. Maybe 3 rounds? More? I'm kind of new at making up a crossfit routine, but it sounds like it would be challenging.

Question - Why is it that every time I see a picture of someone doing a clean on the internet, 90% of the time they're not going into a proper rack position?

Case in point:

as compared with:

Laziness, poor instruction, poor comprehension, any combo of these three, or...they're trying to set a new record in one of the CF benchmark workouts (OK, maybe I'm the only one guilty of that infraction). ;-)

Kevin - :lol: So you noticed those Bear pictures, too. Makes you wonder how much weight a guy that big could use if he wasn't performing an isometric press throughout the whole movement.

Ron - I did max rounds in 20 minutes of 5 reps of Bear/ one or two laps around the basketball court. The laps were really like rest - lots of jogging and wheezing.
