The Bear Complex – Possibly the Best Full Body Exercise?

I’ve been making this killer combo a part of my weekly routine lately.  I have no doubt that this exercise is one of the single best full body exercises out there.

The Bear Complex is a combination of several Olympic style lifts, done in succession without letting the barbell touch the ground.  To begin, clean the barbell, then perform a front squat, then a jerk to bring the bar back, followed by a back squat, then another jerk and finally bringing the bar back to the front and to the ground.

If the measure of an exercise truly is the power in which that exercise elicits, then the Bear Complex would be right up there at the top.
