Time to squat. Overhead Squat. 
I know some of you hate it. I know some of you love it. But no matter where you are with it don't let it strike fear in your heart. Come and work on it. Go light. Fix those mobility problems and work on technique rather than weight today. 

Strength

1 Behind the neck Jerk + 2 Overhead Squats x 5sets

Stay super light today and work primarily on positioning. Between your sets work on mobility and then try to hit your best positions even if that means not going all the way down. For the behind the neck jerk it is the starting movement for your overhead squat. We see it in the bear complex and we might as well practice it so we can become efficient in that movement. 

Conditioning

8min Ascending Ladder

  • 2 OHS (95/65lbs) (75/55lbs)
  • 2 Box Jump overs
  • 4 OHS 
  • 4 Box Jump overs
  • 6 OHS
  • 6 Box Jump overs
  • ...

Again stay super light on these Overhead Squats... If that means doing the work with a PVC pipe don't let your pride get the best of you... do it. No point in hurting yourself for a workout. As well if you don't feel comfortable with the overhead squats you can do front squats. Do work on the box jump overs.
