There Will Be Sweat

Probably some blood too. No tears though. Never tears. Dan Betz's training log.


Cosgrove’s Evil 8 Complex

Found this complex here and thought I’d give it a go. I loaded up a barbell with 85lb for the following movements:

  • Deadlift
  • Romanian Deadlift
  • Bentover Row
  • Hang Power Clean
  • Front Squat
  • Push Press
  • Back Squat
  • Good Morning

On round one, perform 6 reps of each exercise, moving from one exercise to the next, never letting go of the bar, never resting. I was supposed to rest 90 sec between sets, but it wasn’t feeling very difficult so I cut the rest down to 60 sec for a few sets and no rest between the last two sets.

Total time: 11:50.

I picked 85lb because I didn’t want too heavy a load for the good mornings, but this just wasn’t that tough. I’ll need to see how heavy I’m capable of going on the GMs safely and give it another go with a heavier weight.
