Overhead Squat


Increase weight ea set

Video courtesy of CrossFit HQ.  Quick pointers in the OHS, which will be our squat for this cycle.

Remember, in the 5X5 week, the 5th rep should be a struggle (but manageable) to keep good form.  Push yourself!


For Time*:

50, 40, 30, 20,1 0 – Ab Mat Sit Ups

12, 10, 8, 6, 4 – Power Snatch (115/80)


*Every Minute on the minute, 5 hand release push ups

So, no matter where you are in the WOD, at the top of every minute (to include the start of the WOD), perform 5 hand release push ups.


Scaling Options:

Ab mat SU -> feet-anchored SU

Bar weight -> as needed (should be something you could do 10 unbroken when fresh)

Hand rel push up -> push up off bench


Cool Down:

Banded bully stretch per side – 2 min


Cobra pose – 1 min
