Welcome back from Brazil, Juliana and Charmel!

Do you eat more vegetables when you cook at home or when you eat out?  Is the quality of greens the same either way?

Jonathan opens his 5x5 OHS at 135

Relative to the Back Squat, the difficulty of the Overhead Squat is less dependent on strength and more dependent on balance.  The ability to keep the barbell centered over the glenohumeral joint and mid foot while squatting through a full range of motion requires considerable focus.
How else is the Overhead Squat challenging?

Announcing our first official Team for FIGHT GONE BAD 4!!
Anne Williams
Samir Chopra
Scott Lundhagen
Asta Fivgas
Ashley Fothergill

Okay Team 1, time to start talking strategy.  Someone will have to volunteer to be team Captain and then the following decisions will be made: Team Name, Start order on exercises and preferred heat order (out of a hypothetical 6 teams).  You guys all have an email in your inbox with everyones contact information to get the ball rolling.  Teams might also consider setting up additional FGB specific training sessions to build team cohesiveness and capacity.

The next team will be announced tomorrow, stay tuned!
