Rest between sets as needed.  Goal is max load in a set.  No changing loading during a set (duh).  

See below for an explanation of all the rules in the Bear Complex.

What percentage of Americans have run around the block with a sandbag or a 45lb plate and before 6:15am?

Rules of the Bear Complex

Rules of the Bear Complex:
1. No resting on the ground (even to re-grip).  Failure to do so designates a failed set and the athlete must stop.  
2. Failed sets absolutely count as one of your five (duh).
3. Athletes can break up or combine hte movements as long as the following are met: the clean starts at the ground and finishes standing with the hip at full extension, squats go below parallel (duh) and push presses finished locked out overhead.
4. Push jerks are acceptable. 
5. There is no time component for a set, the athlete can rest anywhere EXCEPT on the ground. 
6. Athletes perform 7 rounds of the sequence to get through one set.  There are 5 sets.
