The 5 Best Barbell Complex Workouts to Burn Fat and Build Muscle

One piece of equipment, 5 routines, hundreds of calories burned.

A barbell complex is any series of movements performed back-to-back with a barbell in which the set number of reps is completed for each movement before moving on to the next and the barbell never leaves the athlete’s hands until all the lifts and reps are completed.

Barbell complexes are great for building endurance, adding strength-based cardio to your workouts, and torching fat, says Alyssa Ages, athlete with PowerNYC Training and trainer at Global Stronman Gym, Epic Hybrid Training, and Uplift Studios. Try these routines from Ages to mix up your go-to circuit workouts.
