The Bar Complex is a series of 5 exercises done for 6 reps each with no rest once the first exercise is started.  We will do 3-4 rounds of this.  This is a warm-up that we do before our strength training on day 4 early in the off-season program.  We will also do it during the pre-season phase while we are doing more circuit work in the weight room.  What I really like about the Bar Complex is that you can really improve both your strength and conditioning by adding weight to the bar in a progressive manner over time.  I originally learned this from Al Vermeil who had learned it from Istvan Javorek.  This is also known as the Javorek complex.
