Wednesday: The Overhead Squat and YOU!

“People ask me ‘what do we do for abs? I tell them stabilize the mid-line like a motherf***er that’s what you do.”

-Greg Glassman founder CrossFit

Today we’re focusing big time on the Overhead Squat.

I remember reading these words in the CrossFit Journal years ago…and knew I had to step up my ‘OHS’ game.

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

Mobility. Flexibility. Coordination. In addition to the obvious this is what we’re training and looking to improve today.

Come on in…& let’s get after it!
