CrossFit Workout of the Day – 9/9/19

WOD: Overhead Squats

  • 7 sets x 3 reps, working to a 3 rep maximum lift

WOD Purpose:

This workout is a test to evaluate how well your overhead squat is progressing. As we are on a squat cycle, this is an important mid-cycle check in for how things are going – so come in and give it your best today!

Scaling Options:

If you are new to CrossFit (one month of less) you will find a moderately challenging weight and stay at that weight load for all seven sets. Moderately challenging will depend on your mobility and if you can do the lift safely. We will start with a PVC pipe.
