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!

We will be announcing the the first FIGHT GONE BAD IV team on tomorrow's rest day post!  Just like last year, we'll ask that one person from each team volunteers as captain and helps coordinate their team's starting positions, strategy and leads the destruction of all other teams.  There was also be an incentive for the team with the most funds raised for Charity. Details to follow...

For the next week, we're asking that everyone takes note of how many meals they've prepared for themselves.  This isn't a challenge or contest, we just want you to take a moment at the end of each day and write down anything you cooked as opposed to purchased from a restaurant.  We'll follow up on this next Tuesday, don't post meals to comments.
