I'm relatively new to CrossFit - 2.5 years, 64 years old, 5'6". The OHS is my Waterloo at this time. I feel comfortable squatting; my snatch is at 36#; push press at 40#. But, whenever I attempt an OHS, I can't carry more than 20#, and it's a struggle. I can hold the weight overhead, just can't get down into a squat - maybe make it 1/4 of the way down.

What can I do to improve?

Thank you.

Do a split ohs. If you are not going to be games athlete use the split ohs and continue working mobility. Many of us geezers have the same problems.
