A Posterior Chain Barbell Complex For Challenging Your Strength, Endurance and Cardio Capacity
If you're not familiar with the term "barbell complex," it's pretty easy to grasp...it's a series of barbell exercises done without changing or removing your grip on the bar.
This is VERY good training, especially for fat loss or when you're short on time - it stimulates a tremendous amount of muscle mass (especially this posterior chain complex I'm going to show you) and really ramps up the metabolism.
It's not great for building muscle, though, because you'll be limited in the weight you use by the weakest exercise in the complex.
As far as the posterior chain goes, if you're not familiar with that term, it's basically a group name for all the muscles that run down the back of your body...traps, lats, spinal erectors, glutes, hams, calves.
So here's the exercise list you're going to:
1. Hang Clean & Press - hits shoulders and traps
You're going to use the same grip on every single exercise, starting with the hang clean and press. I usually set my index fingers on the smooth O rings on the Olympic bar. The rest of the exercises are done with that grip - even the conventional deadlifts.
As you can see, you're going from weakest to strongest lifts with this complex. It's going to work the hell out of your grip, too.
The video shows the whole run-through in sequence. Got some pics, of course, too.
No-Rest Lactic Acid Superset for Fat Loss - Decline Barbell Bench and Close Grip Bent-Over Rows
Got a great fat-loss style training technique for you here. This is Lactic Acid Training, which is extremely beneficial for fat loss.
This is somewhat along the same lines and the technique can be plugged into this program or pretty much ANY fat loss program.
Basically, you go back and forth between high rep sets of two anatagonistic bodyparts. The purpose of this is to kick out BIG loads of lactic acid, which in turn results in GH secretion, which is a potent fat burning hormone (along with muscle-building).
You can read the full story on this technique here:
No-Rest Lactic Acid Supersetting - Supercharge
On that article page, I used swiss ball dumbell bench press and dumbells rows for the example.
On THIS page, I've got Decline Barbell Bench Press and Close Grip Barbell Bent-Over Rows. You can most likely use about the same weight on both of these - I just use the same barbell and go back and forth between the two exercises for high reps.
Because the exercises and antagonistic, it allows you to really keep up with nervous system functioning and actually get more reps than you normally could. It's an excellent combination and you can use it with any antagonistic pairing of muscles (e.g. biceps, triceps).
Here's what it looks like (the video will show it best).
Then directly to:
Then right back to the benching...
This gives you NO opportunity to fully rest but because you're working antagonistic muscle groups, they do actually recover fairly well and you'll be able to crank out a good amount of reps.
