I modified the workout to 5 sets of 8 reps to help work on form.
65-8
75-8
85-8
95-8
95-8
I feel like the flexibilty in my shoulders is improving a lot. I just need to continue to work on staying back on my heels.

I also incorporated some handstand push ups in my warm up

45, 65, 85, 105, 105, 95(x10), 65(x10). Really impressed with my improvements (ie actually doing o-h squats), which I credit to consistently including arm rotations with a pvc pipe into my warmup. Slowly becoming flexible...

Did a little extra credit because I felt pretty good. Good work on the flexibility today guys. There is a noticable improvement in movement technique.

After 185, my form didn't feel as fluid as I would like.

Did the same weight as peter.
I'm feeling a lot more comfortable doing the OH Squats. Next go around i should be good to go with more weight.

Need to start heavier sooner. Its amazing how much my shoulders were smoked toward the end.

Warmed up with some light weight.
55,65,75,75,85,95 (failed on #3). Still feel balance and form rather than strength are preventing me from going higher but this was much better. Had problems doing 1 squat with 45 pounds four weeks ago, very happy with my form/balance improvement.

Really focusing on form or just didn't remember # of reps... either way good work out.

45, 65, 75, 85, 85, 85, 95. Felt pretty good throughout the movement. I really focused on going low enough and maintaining my balance on the overheads.

Still need lots of work on form, but making steady progress. The PVC pipe has definitely helped my form and flexibility.

I did some company PT before this workout: Hill Repeats, Push ups, flutter kicks, dips, pull ups.

I was a little tired, so I didn't get too much weight up. I also wanted to maintain good form.

Alot better than last time I did OHS with any sort of weight.

I think I could have gone higher, but I was having problems snatching the weight and I didn't have a squat rack. Still, pretty happy with almost getting to BW. Followed up with burpee pullups, situps, BW squats, and planks.
