“The Bear Complex”

WOD Notes:  You have five rounds to find your max weight for the bear complex. The bear complex is a barbell progression consisting of  power clean -> front squat -> push press -> back squat -> push press (from behind the head). Tap the floor and repeat for a total of SEVEN times through the sequence. A few ground rules: You ARE allowed to combine the front squat -> push press into a thruster. (Same for the back squat -> push press.) You MAY NOT rest the bar on the floor until you complete all 7 times through the sequence. For a video demonstration of the WOD, see below.
