So how did you like Wednesday’s overhead squats? Most people struggle with them due to either mobility or stability, rather than shear lack of strength. I know a few of you made some goals to improve, that’s awesome 🙂 Here’s a little troubleshoot that might help with your overhead squats.

Elbow bending in overhead fault
– stretch lats on rack
– stretch stretch pecs and biceps with counter stretch

Leaning forward in squat fault
– stretch hip flexors in couch stretch

Lack of depth in squat fault
– stretch glutes in pigeon stretch off bench/box/floor

Lack of ankle flexion in squat fault
– stretch gastrocnemius with straight leg wall stretch
– stretch sole us with bent leg wall stretch

Feet swivel outward while squatting fault
– stretch piriformis with half lord of fishes pose
