Overhead Strength: 3/5/19

When performing the OH squat, you should be thinking about constantly lifting/pushing the weight, and never just ‘holding it’. You do not want your muscles to be relaxed and depressed during the movement—they should be flexed to form a solid base of support for the weight overhead.

Major Points of Performance:

  1. Bar begins over the base of your neck (back rack)
  2. Elbows pointed down, show your armpits to the people in front of you
  3. Spread the bar with your hands as you push up on the load.
  4. Tight Core, naval drawn toward spine
  5. Point the palms of your hands toward the ceiling
