How flexible are you? How stable is your core, particularly the muscles in your lower back? To find the answers to these questions, you need to start overhead squatting.
The overhead squat, once used primarily by Olympic lifters, has come into vogue of late thanks to extensive use by CrossFit practitioners. They’ve definitely uncovered something good—a lift that will challenge your body from head to toe.
Start out by learning proper technique with a broomstick, dowel, or length of PVC pipe.
1. Get Warm
Mobility is crucial here, so properly warm up your shoulders, spine, and ankles for best results.
2. Be Fresh
Overhead squat early in your routine. Don’t fatigue your shoulders before you get under the bar.
3. Use Your Head
Keep the bar at or behind the center of your head. This will help you lock it in place at the bottom.
