Overhead Squat Video: A New 10 Rep Max

When I lift on my own, I like to record my sessions so I can see what I need to work on.  Today, I used open gym time at CrossFit Metropolis to make up a workout that I had missed during the week: three sets of 10 overhead squats.  Earlier this month, I scored a huge PR in this lift - three reps at 85 lbs.  I was excited to try for a 10 rep PR today.  When we did this workout back in April, I worked up to 60 lbs.  Today, I did 65 lbs.  That much weight for that many reps was tough - you can see how wobbly I got towards the end!
