Are you able to train on days other than M/W/F or looking to add them in conjunction with one of your current workouts?
If you are going to be using them for fat loss purposes or would like to increase your training frequency then I would perform complexes on 2-3 of your 'rest' days utilizing total body movements (full clean, snatch, clean and press, rows, bear complex, etc.).
A typical workout might look something like this:
5-10 minutes steady state cardio (walking, elliptical, etc.)
* One Arm DB Snatch (10 reps each arm)
* Barbell Hang Clean (15-25 reps)
* Bench or Box Jumps (20-25 reps)
Perform 5 rounds of the complex with 2 minutes rest between complexes (no rest between exercises).
There are quite a few variations with complexes and a number of articles on the topic. You can also look to Crossfit WOD's for ideas since many of their workouts are essentially 'complexes'.
