Combo Exercises for Strength and Development

Hail to the Dinosaurs!

I had a great workout last night.

The problem is, I can't figure out
if it was a one exercise or a two
exercise workout.

You see, I did squat snatches and
overhead squats.

One snatch followed by three over-
head squats on each set.

I'm not sure if that's a one
exercise combination -- which
would make it a one exercise
workout -- or a two exercise

Frankly, it doesn't matter.

It was fast, fun and challenging.
And it worked everything from my
toes to the top of my head.

Combination exercises are a great
change of pace -- and they're
lots of fun -- and they're a
great way to train.

There are plenty of good two
and three exercise combinations
you can try:

1. Power clean and press -- a
favorite of John Grimek. He once
wrote an article where he said it
was the single best exercise you
could do.

2. The one dumbbell clean and press.

3. The two dumbbell clean and press.

4. Any of the above, but do a push
press or a jerk to finish the

5. The squat and press behind neck --
which was Bob Hoffman's favorite

6. The two dumbbell curl and press --
a favorite of John Grimek and Steve
Stanko, who used to go up and down
the dumbbell rack at the old York
Barbell Club gym.

7. The power clean, front squat and
press (or push press or jerk).

8. The front squat and press -- or
push press or jerk.

9. The power clean from the hang,
followed by a power clean from the

10. The power snatch from the hang
followed by the power snatch from
the floor.

Good stuff -- and very, very

As always, thanks for reading and
have a great day. If you train today,
make it a good one!

Yours in strength,
