I hate to be Tommy Technicality, but I’d call that a circuit, not a complex. And if you’re using the same weight for incline DB presses and rows, they’re almost certainly “plain old” DB rows, not Kroc rows.
That aside, interesting idea. I recently wrapped up 4 weeks of Cosgrove’s Complexes for Fat Loss.
This was an uncut “real time” workout on the last week:
Last set starts around 10:00 if you’re interested.
I haven’t played much with heavier/low rep complexes, but I’ll probably work them in sometime down the road.[/quote]
That seems pretty brutal with the jumps incorporated.
My favorite low rep complex goes like this
hang clean - push press - front squat - RDL - row
I don’t like having to put the bar on my back and then push it off after a lot of fatiguing with heavy weight, so the bar is always in front. I’ve gone up to 165 and 3 reps and it is exhausting in a very different kind of way [/quote]
I partially tore my subscapularis (if that’s the correct spelling) a few months back, so I have to stay away from olympic lifts and squats for a while.
Today is a bodyweight CIRCUIT: 10 rounds of wide grip pullup/pushup/plank/jump rope all nearing failure. Gonna be brutal but I love training outdoors.
