How to Overhead Squat
Primary Muscles: Full Body
Exercise Families: Warm Up
Trainer: Ashley Steele
Stand in good posture and lift both arms overhead along an arc. Bend forward at the waist to touch the toes with the hands.
Activate the core and contract the abdominals to stabilize the spine. Slowly begin to inhale, push the hips back and down—allow the knees to bend naturally and the trunk to lean forward.
Continue lowering into the squat as far as possible maintaining proper posture and balance. Hold the down-position briefly. Slowly begin to exhale and drive both feet through the floor to press the body to the starting position. Repeat this functional movement for the specified amount of time or repetitions.
You should feel this activating your core, glutes, hips arms, and shoulders.
