The Overhead Squat

The elusive Overhead Squat

It's been awhile since we have included overhead squats in a workout, but we have done variations when we have worked on squat snatches. The overhead squat is difficult for many people with limited mobility. Most issues with mobility actually begin at our feet and move up our bodies. They are also caused by our lifestyle of working at a desk, typing, driving, and texting.

The best remedy is to try not to sit a lot - stand up and walk around as much as you can during the day. Try and wear flat shoes or no shoes if possible. Stretch often! Take 10 minute breaks and work on sitting in the bottom of a squat, rolling out the bottom of your feet with a lacrosse ball, or stretching your ankles. If you have more free time, include a yoga practice into your day or try ROMWOD.

This also means that some of you who are newer to this movement may not be able to perform it to the standards, and what we will do is modify this workout to make it available to everyone.
