Complexes don’t have to be limited to barbells and dumbbells. Another common piece of equipment but uncommonly used for a complex is a plate. It completely changes the dynamics of the exercises and places a greater demand on your core, depending on the exercise performed. Plus, since most people haven’t seen plate complexes before, you’re going to look super innovative.
