This Barbell Plate Complex comes to us from Dan E. Learn some of the movements...you'll probably see them in the Prison Workout #3. Here was the rest of Dan's email:
You do 6 reps of each lift without ever putting the plate down, back-to-back-to-back. Once you complete one cycle, rest as follows. Do 4 cycles.
- 1st week-90 sec
- 2nd week-75 sec
- 3rd week-60 sec
- 4th week-45 sec
I began this cautiously...with a 15# MB. I soon learned I could do it with a 20#MB, 35# plate, and then got a little sloppy with a 45# plate. I used 90 second rest periods at first, which was a little too long for my liking. Lastly, the bent-over-rows are pretty useless at this light of load.
Play with it. The twisting motions are most excellent!!
