    300 lbs CrossFit Bear Complex & Deficit Deadlift

    I also pulled 625 lbs while standing on a 4" block, but hitched that one so decided to post my final warm-up set...

    I've done this complex many times and I know it's only one round, but to see someone using 300 lbs is just ridiculous! That's insane, Tom.

    Thank you, I started a thread on them after using it as a warm-up for my training the other day. There is a forum challenge with 135/185 lbs which I might try next week:

    I am not impressed with alot of things but this is one of them, solid work Tom.
    Success is achieved by doing a little more than you thought you could, and a lot more than anyone else.

    You need to tackle the King Kong workout at some point:

    3 Rounds for time:

    1 Deadlift 455#
    2 Muscle Ups
    3 Squat Cleans 250#
    4 Handstand Pushups

    Funny, I was just about to suggest that to Tom.

    Tom, you're probably the only person that comes to mind that could complete this on these boards.

    That definitely sounds like a good challenge; I would need to practice the handstand push-up's as I have never done one before.

    You'll plow through them based on your overhead pressing strength vs. body weight ratio. Are you able to do muscle-ups?

    Did it originate from somewhere else?

    I have no idea. I have seen the Bear complex long before I heard about Crossfit. All I'm saying. Crossfit is nothing new either. Neither is 5/3/1 or Block periodization. All this crap has been done before. Change a few things and slap a label on it and it's a brand new concept.

    I have done a muscle-up in the past but do not have rings and am not sure if the movement would bother my shoulders or not; dips have become a bit troublesome for me.

    Something that I have yet to see in any of the "WOD's" is a clapping pull-up, I have a few friends who can do them and they are pretty cool.

    I only threw the term CrossFit in because it is more recognized; like you said I am sure that people were doing barbell complexes for 50 years before anyone came up with the concept of "CrossFit".

    Here I am thinking that you were opening a Crossfit gym. I was going to wish you good luck. One opened up three blocks from my house recently so it has piqued my curiosity. From what i hear, these types of places are cash cows. Either way, a 300 lb bear complex is ridiculous. Now, for a set of 5....
