Supplemental Work

Realized that it’s been months since I’ve done any overhead squats, and my strength with that movement is in the toilet.  This is terribly unfortunate as my previous best with OHS is a single for 225lbs and 16 reps at body weight (175×16).
In an attempt to regain that strength, I’m dropping the weight WAY down, thinking long term, dialing in technique, and going for volume.

Overhead Squat 1 × 120 1 × 108

Overhead Squat rep-out: 95×20

So glad I did this as it revealed so many weaknesses: shoulder mobility, questionable squat depth under fatigue, strength imbalances, and some noise in my right knee.

Time to reboot my mobility-wod work!
