Nancy

5 Rounds for Time

400M Run
15 Overhead Squats 95/65lbs

Workout notes: This workout is a famous CrossFit benchmark workout that is part of the “Girls”  series.  The Overhead Squat requires a lot of mobility to be able to perform repetitions at your full range of motion! You’ll actively press the bar up overhead and keep your arms externally rotated.  The best overhead squatters have the range of motion in their joints to keep an almost vertical structure from arm all the way down to the feet. This means getting your hips low keeping your chest up.  If you don’t have the ROM now that’s okay! It doesn’t mean you can’t practice the movement.  Go as deep as you can into a squat with a weight you can keep supported overhead.  If OHS isn’t happening today substitute a front squat and start spending some time working on that ROM!
