Back in March my good friend, Nick Tumminello, released his new book titled “Strength Training for Fat Loss” and he was kind enough to share a copy with me. It is a SOLID book and I recommend you pick it up!
Since the book is directed at fat loss, Nick spends a large portion of it discussing metabolic resistance training and what he calls “the three c’s”: circuits, complexes, and combination exercises. These three methods are the key to keeping intensity high which is critical to fat loss programming. While many people are quite familiar with circuit training, fewer understand complexes and combinations, let alone the key differences between the two.
With that in mind, I decided to film a quick video discussing the difference between the two as well as how I like to program them for clients based on Nick’s advice.
