Overhead Squats (95/65)
With much of the focus today being on the overhead squat, you can make your goal in this workout to complete each round in 1-2 sets. Having to drop the bar an snatch it back up, it pays off to pace the rest of the workout accordingly to hold on for large sets. To accomplish that you could possibly break the pull-ups into three sets and hold controlled burpees with a slight breath at the top. With a reverse rep scheme to what we are accustomed to, it will be tempting to want to go fast from the beginning. Holding this slightly more conservative pace at the start will pay off when you approach the bigger sets in the last two rounds.
