What's that, hands in the air holding an Olympic bar? Couldn't be much harder than holding it across your back! Ha! I remember my first time doing overhead squats - I thought that I'd go light, with 95 lbs on the bar, and promptly dropped it straight to the ground! True functional, full body "core" training!
21-15-9 rep rounds of:
95 lb. Overhead squats
20 lb. Medicine ball cleans
- adjust weight of overhead squats to suit your ability

We spend a lot of time on Concept 2 rowing ergometers. Technique is a big part of the ability to row a fast 500, 1000, 2000, 5k or 10k. Check out this video we got from one of our CrossFit affiliates (thanks Pierre!) Describes in detail the stroke, speed, power, acceleration, recovery. Now all you have to do is insert yourself in place of the stick figure!

(Cindy - 5 pull ups, 10 push ups, 15 squats)
(Mary - 5 handstand push ups, 10 single leg squats, 15 pull ups)
