The Overhead Squat

The Overhead Squat

Nothing compares to the overhead squat in creating strength, flexibility, core strength (through mid-line stabilization), balance, coordination, and accuracy. In fact, it can be argued that the ONLY movement for total body strength that you need to work on is an overhead squat. The cool thing about it is can be practiced easily at home – with a 5′ piece of pvc or dowel. The quicker you master the movement, the more quickly you’ll be able to reap the benefits.
