The Overhead Squat is one of the best things we can do to develop overall total body strength and stability. In this one lift the entire body from big toe to pinky is engaged with one sole purpose – to support and move the load overhead. More than that, overhead squats both demand and develop phenomenal levels of mid-line stability (that is the body’s ability to maintain a rigid spine wedded to the pelvis) allowing for improvements in all functional movements and in life. Any difficulty in overhead squatting exactly describes it’s need.
