Jason, thanks, as always, for a great example of what we’re looking for in that squat!

Amanda, great depth, shoulder position, and stability.  Keep working on pulling that chest up into a more upright posture.  

This was Carrie’s first time doing OH Squats!  Awesome depth and form!  Pull those shoulders back bit more and drive that bar more overhead or slightly back.  Nice work!

Isabelle, great squat form, as always.  Narrow up your stance just a bit and keep resting those shoulders so you can go heavier-which we know you’re capable of!

Connie-also her first time doing OH Squats!  As always, your drive and determination are admirable.  Keep pulling back on those shoulders and stretching that knee to go deeper and deeper!  Awesome job!

Kyle, you really are improving, even though you feel frustrated.  The heavier weight got your heels popping and the lighter weight was better.  Your squat form is so much better.  Just keep at it.  When I stepped on your heels, you did just fine, so most of it is connecting your brain with those muscles and making them do the right thing.  You’re getting there!

  1. Forgot to get a picture of the whiteboard after Jason went for a 1 rep max at the end of this workout. He tied his previous OH Squat PR of 60kg. This AFTER doing 75 reps of 95 lb. for time! I would bet money on the fact his OHS 1 rep max PR is now higher than 60kg.
