BarbellComplexes
FatLossAccelerator#1


WhatAreBarbellComplexes?

Complexesareaseriesofcircuits,usuallywithfivetosevenexercisesineachcircuit.
Alloftheexercisesaredonewithaweightedbarbell.Insteadofdoingthreesetsofeach
exerciseasyouwouldinanormalroutine,youdoonesetofeachexercise,without
stopping,resting,orputtingdownthebarbell.Attheendofthecircuit,yourestforas
littletimepossiblebutexpecttotakethirtytoninetyandthenstartalloveragain.Most
barbellcomplexesareoveranddonewithintentotwentyfiveminutes,buttheyllbe
someofthehardestminutesyouveeverlivedthrough.

Thereareseveralvariationsonbarbellcomplexes,andIllsharesomeofthosewithyou
inafewminutes.ButfirstIwanttoexplainwhybarbellcomplexesareoneofthebest
techniquesyoucanusetoturbochargeyourmetabolism,burnfat,increaseendurance,
stimulatetheCNSandincreasemusclefiberrecruitment.

WhyBarbellComplexesAreSoEffective?

Barbellcomplexesareabouttwothings,really:taxingyourlacticenergysystemand
increasingyourEPOC(excesspostworkoutoxygenconsumption).Inaway,it
combinestheprinciplesandresultsofhighintensityintervaltrainingandsupersets.

Firstletmegiveyouabriefrundownonhowyourlacticenergysystemfunctionsand
howcomplexesaffectthatprocess.

Therearetwopartstoyourlacticenergysystem:thealacticanaerobicenergysystem
andthelactatesystem.Bothareanaerobic.Inotherwords,theykickinwhenthework
youredoingistoointensetobefueledaerobically.

OurmusclecellsstoreenergyintheformofATP,buttheyonlystoreenoughforafew
secondsoftrulymaximalwork,likeyourmaxsprint.Butyourcellsalsostorecreatine
phosphate,whichcanworkveryquicklytoreplenishthatcellsstoreofATP.This
twocompoundprocessiswhatmakesupyouralacticanaerobicenergysystem.
Together,ATPandcreatinephosphatecanpoweryouthroughabouttensecondsof
contraction.Onceyouveusedthatup,youhavetoreplenishthestore,either
aerobicallyorthroughthelactatesystem.Ifyourestillworkingatmaxeffort,itsupto
thelactatesystem.

Throughtheprocessofglycolysis,yourmusclecellsstorecarbsintheformofpyruvate.
Ifyourmuscleshaveenoughoxygenavailable,theycanbreakthepyruvatedown
aerobicallyanduseittomakesomeATP.Ifyoudonthaveenoughoxygenavailable,
thepyruvatewillhavetobeconvertedintolacticacid,whichthenbecomeslactate.That
lactatecanthenbeusedtocreatemuchmoreATPandfasterthanispossiblethrough
glycolysis.

Theproblemwithlacticbuildup,asyouprobablyalreadyknow,isthatitsfollowedvery
quicklybymusclefatigue.Yourworkouthastobequickenoughtotapintothatlactate
systemandutilizeitbeforeyourmusclesjustquit.Ifyoucandothat,though,youend
upwithaworkoutthathasanextremelyhighmechanicalworkload(stimulatingmore
musclefiberrecruitment)andveryhighmetabolicstress(forfatburning).

Also,whenlacticacidlevelsareelevated,hydrogenionsinyourbloodarealso
elevated.Thisstimulatesthepituitaryglandtosecretesomatropin(humangrowth
hormone)naturally.Alotofbodybuildersillegallyinjectsomatropintogetshreddedfor

Thenormalrestperiodsareabsentinbarbellcomplexesandyouneverputthebarbell
