The only formula I have is:
If my back, front and overhead squats are A, B, and C, respectively,

then A, B, and C all ought to be bigger than they are now.

Spoke to my coach today about this. he said that elite lifters FS can be as high as 85% of BS!
Last time I maxed:
FS 65kg
BS 80kg

I can probably go higher now but havent in a bit!

Now OHS has a lot to do with flexibility and shoulder mobility as already said!

I'm 5'3 and weigh 130lbs and have a backsquat at 253, front squat at 235 (93%) and an overhead squat down at 155 (61%).

However my limiting factor with the overhead squat is not the squat or even the shoulder strength, it is pushjerking the bar off my back in snatch grip.

(I've been doing crossfit for 1.5 years and o-lifting for 4 months)

Kelly,

Is there anyway you can do the OHS off of blocks? this would eliminate the need to push it off of your shoulders. Plus being 5'3, the blocks don't need to be that high!
