Full range of motion.  Gaining full mobility of our bodies is an important goal.  It is key to gain this mobility and it is your homework to get there.  The overhead squat is a great way to test your level of shoulder, hip and ankle mobility.

Some have the mobility, but simply do not have the strength or body awareness to train with full range of motion.  We see this issue with nearly all the body movements.  The answer is to reduce the reps and/or weights in the WOD, and train at the full range of motion.  The strength will come in the full range if you train in this range. 

(None of the above applies to Shannon, She does train with full range of motion.)
