One of my mentors, Coach Robert Dos Remedios, recently discussed a training method he engages his clients and athletes in. The training method is known as "complex training," where a traditional strength movement is followed by a power movement involving a similar muscle group/movement pattern. A couple examples of complex training could include the following:

  1. Push-ups followed by Medicine Ball throws
  2. Squats followed by Squat Jumps
  3. Chin-ups followed by Med Ball Slams

Complexes are both challenging and fun. Give them a try.  Check out the video here for demonstrations:
