    OMG they are hard as shit. I was only able to do 135 for 4 reps...granted I had never done them before and I warmed up on the movement ad nauseum. Anyway, it was crazy hard...what a movement.

    135-pounds for your first overheads is pretty impressive.

    I find you really have to watch your shoulder position...especially if you are new to the lift.

    I just finished some OHS with a heavy bag...painful, but I feel like every time I do these my flexibility improves a bit and I can squat a little deeper
     
  10. I love OHS, I'm not sure why I haven't done them lately.

    Okay for the n00b's benefit, what's with the "welcome to the real" thing? I feel like I'm missing something.

    So it's calling bullocks on the op? (My brain disconnected about an hour ago, hoping it comes back for BJJ this evening).
