The picture above depicts the muscles that are primarily worked during the Overhead Squat! I’m fairly certain Chris C. was the model for this artist.

FRX: 75/55 lbs, Assisted Ring Dip, 35/25 lbs KB
Goal: 50 – 60 reps per round on average
Coaching: As with all Fight Gone Bad style workouts, consistency is key! Ensure the Overhead Squats are a weight you can effectively squat to depth with and hold onto for at least 10 to 12 reps each round. The Ring Dips should be challenging, yet still allow for you to gain 10 to 15 each round. V-Ups are a great way to make up some lost reps, as are the Kettlebell Swings. Pick up the Kettlebell as quickly as possible and hold on to make those rep counts soar. You’ll have 15 seconds between each movement to transition.
