I loved today's workout. After a Slamball Warmup, we worked the overhead squat (OHS) for 10 reps x 5 sets. The instruction was; only move up in weight if you have perfect form for all 10reps, otherwise tweak form at a comfortable weight.
In my experience, the overhead squat is thee standard in functional squat strength!
It's such a great test of core strength and shoulder stability.
Jack was rock solid at 95lb x 10, he has a great overhead position of support and an upright torso when squatting. Andrea was a bit wobbly in her top attempt (mostly fatigue) but was plenty strong enough for a 75lb x 10. Pat gutted through 105lb fighting some forward lean and overhead lockout issues. Keturah battled her hyper-flexible shoulders, kept a solid overhead position and nailed some nice squats. Everyone is work in progress on the OHS; the need for shoulder mobility/stabilization and upright torso is the greatest challenge of the OHS. We will continue our quest!
Next up was a quick little workout that took some strength and power to get through.
