5 Barbell Complexes to Improve Your Strength and Technique

These barbell complexes are all designed to enhance your prowess with the Barbell.


Aleksey Torokhtiy: “The combination of 4 exercises in one complex shows that this complex is never easy.

This combination of exercises develops the ‘base’ perfectly, angles and power endurance, so this complex should be used in the preparation period. Each exercise within this complex can be worked out separately, but this combination is considered to be a ‘time bomb’. The use of this complex even once a week for 2-3 weeks gives excellent results. Depending on the training tasks, you can use a different number of reps in each exercise (from 1 to 4), the intensity can vary from 50 to 85%. This complex is recommended for athletes with at least 2 years of lifting experience.”
