Anyone try using compound lifts like hex bar deadlifts, squats, clean and press for cardio doing either high reps or somethig like ten reps every minute on the minute for a period of time.

There is a guy from IG that does a mix of things, heavy weights but insane reps.

I have used Hammer Deadlift successfully with fighters I have trained.  Like the Hex DL, it has a better ergonomic design, and seems to have a more comfortable fit than standard dead lift.  Using this during pre-fight conditioning is one of the main ingredients in our program when combined with other exercises in a balanced fashion, creating a metabolic scenario similar to MMA/Grappling competition.

I work out that way. Something like this.. 

Every 2 or 2.5 minutes

Pullups, kettle bell swings, thruster

Pushups, swings, lunges

Pullups, swings, bodyweight squats.
