This isn't a kb/db complex, but I just tried a Ross Enamait (tm) medicine ball interval thingie today, and it was exhausting! All it was was 8 rounds (no rest) of 10 medicine ball choppers, 15 slams and 10 burpees. And I was only using an 8 lb ball! I didn't realize how wiped I was until I attempted to run back to work afterwards.

I am not sure if this would count as a complex but I have been playing around with Turkish Get Ups and Man Makers. I start with a TGU, once in the standing position I go into the man maker, and then work down to the start of the TGU.

I really like man makers. I find them easy to remember when I'm hypoxic.

I did the "GE" complex today.

1H snatch
1H OHS
1H Sott's Press
Windmill

All for 5 reps, then switched to the other hand. Started light, with an 8kg powermax, and worked up to the 16kg powermax kb.

Nice! Sweat producing.

A man maker starts with a push up done on two dumbells followed by a rebel row with each hand, followed buy a burpee with the dumbells. Fifty of those are a solid workout.

Why do the guys from gym jones always look like they're on PCP? Seriously I know its hard but you don't have to give yourself an anurism!

Anyway here's mine:
(With two dumbbells or kettlebells)
Push-Up
Snatch Burpee
Squat (overhead, return to standing)
Thruster (racked)
Pistol (racked)
Pistol (racked)
Clean & Push-Jerk
Thruster

The ability to remember what you are doing while under stress is one of the great advantages of doing complexes. Particularly when they are complicated!!! But i'm sure we all knew that...
