was wondering if anybody had done the bodyweight overhead squats for 15 reps yet? I also thought I had seen a challenge for a bodyweight thruster. Did a bodyweight thruster yesterday, (90 kilos) and 4 reps of bodyweight overhead squat.

I know I saw that at least one person posted doing it. I frequently do lighter OHS and am still working on this goal at full weight from time to time.

Recently did 3 sets of 10, although depth was not good in all reps. I have been able to do one set of 12 BW-OHS as my best effort.

I know its probably no surprise but I hardly feel it in my legs, waist up is a different story.

Excellent work John, Craig.

Now that my work schedule has calmed down a bit I've been thinking about going after something OHS related. I recently put my BW up for a set of 5 and was pretty pleased with myself. Much more than that would take a lot more specialized effort than I'm ready to give at the moment.

I'm planning on spending the next two weeks or so trying to get my metabolic conditioning back to where it should be and then I might put up an OHS challenge of some sort. I'm leaning towards max reps at 2/3 or 3/4 BW, some weight that everyone can do, but for tons of reps.

You mentioned not really feeling it below the waist Craig, I bet you 25 or 30 reps in we'll discover leg muscles we never knew existed.

Michael,
I probably would, except it hits my shoulders, wrists, back and abs so much harder that leg discomfort is way low on the list.

In this movement my legs are by far the strongest link in the chain.

I have been using this move regularly for over two years and have gone from a very poor performance of 5 reps with an empty bar 45lbs, to 12 reps at 185(bw)and a best of 210. This is still below where I think it should be with my low bar back squat being about 360.

I hope to be able to meet the BW for 15 reps mark sometime in the next six months or so and figure out a way to film it. I am going to just keep plugging away with the move, periodically testing and hoping to remain relatively un-injured overall. If a rep. type challenge comes up I may join in.

I embarked upon this quest a while ago. It lead me to buy bumpers. . . then some squat stands. . .


I have 'strayed' somewhat, but it still is on my list of stuff to do. My 1 RM was something like 155 at a BW of 195.

The other day I did 145 for three sets of 15 reps. I have been doing three sets of 15 reps OHS as part of most warmups when at the gym.

Today I did 150 for 20 reps. I think I am closing in, but I tend to make progress then stall for a time.

BW 186

The GOLD standard:

15 reps with bodyweight
1 rep with bodyweight + 50lbs.

Gotta work on this one. Have the 1x +50, die off on the high reps.

Ken, wanna race? How about making a run at it every Saturday AM at CFSW? I could use the motivation.

OK Im gonna try this one again... got up to BWT x 1 once.. now that Ive gotten 10 consec MUs.. I need a new"demi" challenge with no time limit.. Having the power rack should help. Lastt time the let down portion to the floor w/o a rack really hurt my shoulder.
