Free Workout Friday: 8.25.17 Complex

Today’s workout is a complex, which means every step moves together, and there are a few different ways that you can set today’s workout up.

You can do 5 sets of 3, 7 sets of 3, 5 sets of 5, or, 5 sets of 7. If you’re not sure how much you’ll be able to do, or how much time you’ll have to perform the workout, my suggestion is plan to start with 5 sets of 3.

To start, perform the deadlift with both kettlebells, dumbells, or the barbell in front of you. At the top of the deadlift, flow right up to the upright row. At the bottom of the row, move right into the curl. As you return the curl to the bottom position, bend over and bring your arms right into the bent row, then move right to the bottom of the deadlift. Complete each rep in one, flowing, controlled movement.

However, as you go, to keep your form and alignment tip-top, you may need to slow down, or take a brief pause. But only do that when you feel that form being compromised.


**As always, start with a lighter weight.
