Skill

Overhead squat
5-5-5-5-5

Spend some time today working on the very difficult overhead squat.  The overhead squat requires a very good mobility and strength.  Practice keeping your torso angle upright while your arms are externally rotated. Your armpits should be pointing out rather than down. Keep the load light today on work on keeping a solid set of 5 rather than maxing out and hitting failure.
WOD

3 Rounds for time
40 Kettlebell Snatch 24/16 kg
400M Run

Workout notes: The kettlebell snatch is another difficult movement to master! You initiate the movement like you would a kettlebell swing but lead with your elbow and rotate your wrist around the kettlebell and press out at the top.  Try not to just flip the KB end over end and let it smash into your arm.  Break up the reps however you want but distribute the work evenly across both arms.
