Accumulate 4 min. of a BB OH Hold (135/95 lb.)
*Every time they break, perform 6 Hang Power Cleans.
It’s time for some single-modality strength effort! This time around, it’s everyone’s favorite lift to hate: the Overhead Squat. We will be spending a LOT of time mobilizing in our session beforehand to get bodies primed to get into good positions with this movement. We want to turn a movement that is often someone’s “goat” into a lift that you look forward to. :)
We are looking for the loading today to be pretty darn heavy across the board and ascending throughout the workout. Barbells are taken from the rack, and a Behind-the-Neck Push or Split Jerk should be utilized to get the bar overhead.
We have included an Optional Finisher at the end of the session that focuses on overhead support and stability with a barbell—it will be a nice finisher to the session that can help build some capacity in a static position. It’s a bit spicy because there is a penalty for coming down from the hold. ;)
