I got this complex from Glenn Pendlay, who prescribes it early in a training cycle to improve strength and promote hypertrophy. In the variation in the video I do:
- 1 Clean Deadlift
- 1 Hang Clean from below the knee
- 2 Front Squats
- 1 Jerk
Make the jerk really hard because your legs are extremely fatigued. Also, keep the bar in your hands a long time.
My 300-pound complex was my limit – exactly where you should aim to put your strength complexes. If you’re a strong-ass mofo, this is the time to really get after it!
