The barbell bear complex is a series of barbell lifts that run together in a single sequence: a barbell power clean, front squat, push-press, back squat, and another push-press from behind the neck. It trains the entire body for both building strength and improving conditioning. It is often performed for rounds, either with or without rest between rounds.
