The Overhead Squat is a weightlifting movement that requires strength, coordination, flexibility, power and a stable midline. Its ability to test the strength of your core, shoulders, and legs is unsurpassed. It’s a technical lift that requires practice, practice, more practice and then patience, but once you get it you quickly see a change in your speed and power. We have been focusing on these quite a bit with PVC pipe both in Elements and then in warm-ups. The weather made for a perfect time for several of you to try it with a barbell or load to feel the difference so we ran everyone through a scaled version of “Nancy”.
