You’ve probably done some sort of complex for the upper body, or a giant set with a previous trainer but here’s a new spin on a complex you’ve probably never seen before.
It starts with the exercise requiring the heaviest weight, before moving to the lightest load on the last exercise. Aim to rest a maximum of 5-10 seconds between movements.
Each exercise on its own hits the glutes, quads, and hamstrings slightly differently as you’ll feel. What is important is that we reduce the weight between each exercise as your strength and grip will suffer as we move through the movements.
- 8 Sumo Squats
- 8 Squats
- 8 Reverse Lunges per leg
** Drop the weight each exercise
It’s an awesome mechanical drop set that will leave you a little wobbly afterward. I’ll usually do these sorts of movements with my clients if we’re short on time and need to get volume in, or at the end of the workout as some sort of ‘finisher’.
Give it a go and let me know how you get on but please, no complaints about the DOMS for the next few days.
Be prepared 😉
