Old School Crossfit Overhead Squat Challenge from Lucas Parker

One of the old-school CrossFit benchmark achievements was to perform 15 overhead squats with your body weight on the bar. Can you manage it?

“I think there’s incredible utility in amassing volume and mastering movements at these “moderate” relative loads. In this exercise, I started with 1 snatch balance plus some overhead squats… On each set I added one more rep of overhead squats. By the end, I felt challenged from the standpoints of skill, stability, and stamina… Take a stab at it!” Lucas Parker

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
