Open Workout 15.2

For as long as possible:

From 0:00-3:00
2 rounds of:
10 overhead squats (95 / 65 lb.)
10 chest-to-bar pull-ups

From 3:00-6:00
2 rounds of:
12 overhead squats (95 / 65 lb.)
12 chest-to-bar pull-ups

From 6:00-9:00
2 rounds of:
14 overhead squats (95 / 65 lb.)
14 chest-to-bar pull-ups

Etc., following same pattern

Total: 233 (16 rounds + 18 OHS + 7 C2B)

Notes: I was dealing with some shoulder issues going into this workout so I knew I needed to be solid on my technique and warm up well.  Hit my mobility in the morning and then came back in the evening to hit the workout.  It was still very hot (80 degrees 75% humidity) at 6:30pm.  Focus on the chest to bar was to keep body solid, push down on the bar on the way back, and then pull the heels back while ripping the elbows behind the body.  Wanted to stay nice and upright on the OHS and go unbroken there.  For C2B, I never went over 4 reps.  Every felt great and finished the round of 14 before the heat set in and my HR did not want to go back down.  This made the round of 16 especially difficult.  Hit the front half in 1:25 then got right on the bar to get the 16 OHS in.  Went unbroken there, and started to chip away at the C2B.  My heart rate was really high and my arms were fatigued, but I was able to get the final rep in before the time cap.  I took about 35 seconds before getting on the bar and hitting some OHS.  Hit 7 C2B Pullups before the time was up.  This crushed me.  I worked really hard to get to the round of 18 and I made it.  I will always have a thought in the back of my head that I may have been able to do better under cooler conditions, but that was all I could physically give that night, and I am happy with that.
