Strength: Minute 20 – 40

Overhead Squats or Modify with Front Squats

  • 10 – 8 – 6 – 4 – 2

Start this off with a little Barbell Warm up to get your shoulders engaged and the bottom of the squat available:

  • 2 Rounds of:
    • 3 Back Squats – Modify with Front Squat
    • 3 Behind the Neck Press (OHS Grip) – Modify with Front Rack press
    • 3 Overhead Squats – Modify with Front Squat to Strict Press

Once you are warmed up, start off with a Set of 10 Unbroken overhead Squats. You may add weight if your overhead position is good. Only allow your squat depth to go as low as a good overhead position will allow. If you are unable to get below parallel with a safe overhead position, modify with the front squat.  

After your set of 10, you may increase the weight as the reps decrease. Keep in mind these reps need to be unbroken so be careful with the amount of weight you jump each up set.

At the end of each set, DROP YOUR BAR in front of your body instead of trying to lower it back down behind your neck. Have your lifting partner help you get it back up into the rack.
