* Today’s overall performance in the overhead squat and the metcon is highly contingent upon possessing an adequate and active end-range of motion in a series of joints, primarily the ankles, hips, and shoulders. Below I have attached a few videos you can utilize during the warm-up. If assistance is needed, don’t hesitate to ask a coach for help.
Overhead Squat (3RM)

If you cannot perform this movement with the confidence to execute each rep at a relatively fast pace, please utilize the Power Snatch (Bar is received locked out overhead with the hip crease higher than the top of the knees.
