This week's Oly class is highly focused on 'Opens' prep. It is very likely that there will be at least one workout that features some sort of barbell squatting movement whether it's Thrusters, Front Squats, OHS's or plain ol' air squats! Prepare yourselves!!

B. Overhead Squat: 3 sets of 7 reps @ 50%
     - Stay at the same weight. Rest 1:00 between sets
