**From the Rack or Floor

Overhead Squat : In order to get the barbell overhead we should either use a behind the neck push jerk or split jerk, then set ourselves up for a quality overhead position by continually pressing up on the bar as we go in and out of the hole of the squat. Press through the elbows and elevate the shoulder blades.. We can sub overhead squats to an overhead walking lunge or a front squat as the go to alternatives for today.

Front Squat

Front Squats : Focus on tension and bracing position continuing to drive the elbows up on the bar into the bottom of the squat. The hips go back and down while holding tension through our midline throughout the entire lift. If we need to scale today due to front rack positioning, a safety squat bar would be ideal, but we can move to a back squat as well.
