Order of Lifts: OHP or Front Squat


I have a day which looks something like this:

Trap bar DL
Clean to Front Squat
Overhead Press
Pull Up
1 Hand Overhead press with chains
15 Minute Cardio, usually stair climbing

I notice if I front squat first then my OHP suffers. On the other hand, if I overhead press first then my cleans suffer.

I could switch OHP with Dumbbell bench press and chin ups, I suppose, but Im in the middle of a cycle and would rather not change anything now.

Do you think I should prioritize front squats or OHP? Will it make a significant difference?


Clean and jerk?


That was my suggestion, try the clean and jerk
