Coaches Note:



Pogo Jump: those are single reps. Make sure that there is a complete reset to a perfect starting position between each jump.

Squat Jump: Start from a lower position (max. 90 degree knee angle), land and pause 1 second. Without resetting jump again. If you need to reset, go back to Pogo Jumps until your landing becomes good enough to do the  next jump without resetting. If its your first time doing Squat Jumps, do them with your hands behind your head.



Things you should try: Regular Grip. Monkey (Finger) Grip. Swinging with shoulder blades retracted and protacted. Swinging using gravity and using strength. Moving through as fast as possible and as efficient as possible.



Bear Complex is performed 6 times without dropping the bar. (Deadlift-Bent Row-Hang Power Clean-Front Squat-Push Press-Back Squat-Push Press). 6 reps of Bear Complex does NOT mean 6 times 6 reps… just 6 reps. Weight should feel heavy.

Beginners split the Bear Complex up into its parts to be able to keep good technique.
