Do most people use weight when doing their overhead squats as part of the CF warm up?

I have always used a light (max 20lb) pole for my OHS during the warm up. I approach it as a movement to loosen things up and get stretched out while warming up. However, I'm now wondering if there would be value to gradually increasing weight on my OHS during the warm up.

Thoughts?

Jason,
I do a set with PVC then up to a 45# empty bar, then 95#. It makes good practice as well as a WU. I stick with the PVC it weighted OHS's conflict with the WOD.
