Overhead Barbell Squat

Skill level: 
Equipment: 
Body parts: 

The overhead squat improves strength and mobility in both the upper body and the lower body. Due to the bar position and the movement pattern, core strength is another benefit of the barbell overhead squat. If you can't squat overhead, a weak core, poor shoulder mobility, weak lats, or weak hamstrings could be the reason. Strengthening these areas will improve your overhead squat.
