A proper overhead squat is a beautiful demonstration of mobility, stability, and core to extremity strength. The combination of thoracic spine, with shoulder and hamstring flexibility as well as adding a load overhead can pose specific challenges to many athletes. The benefits of working these in unison provide amazing athletic strength, fitness, coordination, and flexibility. Combining all these aspects of fitness and athleticism make you a beast. Do some overhead squats now! Every strength and conditioning program should incorporate training with overhead squats!
