10 minutes of a slow to moderate pace row. Followed by 10 minutes of skill work on the “Bear Complex”



 “Bear Complex”

5 Rounds, 7 sets of the following sequence:

Power Clean
Front Squat
Push Press
Back Squat
Push Press

Rest between rounds as needed.
Notes:  The Power clean must be seperate from the front squat.  No resting on the ground during rounds, not even to re-grip.  You want to be at max load by round 4 or 5.



3×10 Reverse Hypers

    I let go of the bar momentarily on the last two rounds of the last two sets. Bear is always a tough workout.

  5. Carson says:

    I only got through three rounds. I guess we started too heavy. Lessons learned.
    Considering my previous push press 3rm is 95, I’m happy. Wish I had finished though.

      You are my hero lady. We’ll know to start lower next time. And I’ll yell louder.
      80-85-90(only three reps and time called). 6am rocked!

      Good work Carson and Jamie! That’s pushing some weight around for sure! Same here…. Hated running out of time on this one! Only got 3 rds completed. 🙁 95#

    My grip was as close to gone as it’s ever been on the last three rounds. Brutal, total gut check, I did not want to pick the bar back up after the second complex.

    I’m looking forward to the next time with this one.

    that 125 round absolutly killed me, let go of the bar after 5 reps. Ill punch that Bear in the face next time!

  13. Robert S. says:


    Robert math kicked in on the fourth round. Thought I had 145 on the bar, but realized it was 155 after I missed the second push press. 145 felt strong after that, but a technical error cost me on one of the push presses.

    95/135/155/165 / 175-X couldn’t lock out rep 6 push press

  17. Patrick says:

    Rx’d 130#. Weak and deconditioned, but glad to be back amongst the tribe.

  18. Mac says:

    95-105-115-125-130(x) Just could not do the last 3. Very tough WOD, but a great challenge.
