We have LOTs of outdoor workout space

Thursday 211028 OHS 5×5 + Finisher

Come practice one of the 9 fundamental movements that is often labeled by many the most challenging. Get in lots of reps with little to no load. Develop sound positioning, work on the simple squat, dial in the dynamic portion of the squat while stabilizing load overhead, and reap the many benefits that developing a solid overhead squat has to offer. This excerpt from an early CrossFit Journal article says it all in regards to why this is one of our fundamental movements:

“The overhead squat is the ultimate core exercise, the heart of the snatch, and peerless in developing effective athletic movement. This functional gem trains for efficient transfer of energy from large to small body parts – the essence of sport movement. For this reason it is an indispensable tool for developing speed and power. The overhead squat also demands and develops functional flexibility, and similarly develops the squat by amplifying and cruelly punishing faults in squat posture, movement, and stability.

The overhead squat is to midline control, stability, and balance what the clean and snatch are to power – unsurpassed.” -Glassman 2005
