Overhead Squat

Ugh. This sucked. I hated this week's movement. The Overhead Squat. I don't think there is a movement that can pick apart form and technique and scrutinize the tiniest immobility or instability or weakness. All under the crushing load of... 95 lbs. I can deadlift well over 500 pounds but overhead squat 95 and I felt like I might crumble like a house of cards.


The overhead squat isn't so much an exercise as it is an personal insult to someone's pride, sense of athleticism, you name it. It requires good shoulder mobility AND stability, thoracic mobility, hip mobility, ankle dorsi flexion, tricep strength, trapezius strength, serratus anterior strength. Basically, you need to be mobile and strong just about everywhere.


Ideally we're looking for a few things here in the form. We want to be able to start with a grip wider than our strict/push press roughly a snatch grip. The stance is similar to other squat movements. Hips should be able to drop slightly below the knee while maintaining a fairly upright torso. There shouldn't be much movement in the bar path.


Let's see the comments this week. Go ahead and roast me.
