5 tips to improve your overhead squat

Author: Admin   Date Posted:23 January 2017 


  1. Build Core Strength. This is the most important for the overhead squat. Some good excersizes for this are weighted planks and L sits.
  2. Work on improving your thoracic mobility by stretching with a foam roller.
  3. Improve your shoulder and scapula stability by spending more time upside down by walking on your hands and doing handstand pushups.
  4. Use voodoo floss bands for your ankles. These will often increase joint mobility, decrease pain and speed up recovery, thus optimizing performance and improving movement quality.
  5. Develop and strengthen your lumbar and gluteal region by doing weighted glute ham raises.
