Overhead Squats

Here is a great warmup exercise. It really gets you going. It gives you some early range of motion but it's also a great strengthening exercise in and of itself.

Benefits of the Exercise

  • Opens up your hips, stretches out your fascia
  • Strength through a large range of motion
  • Gives you a large range of motion
  • Full body stimulus (i.e. hard work…good for weight loss too!)
  • Works the ‘core’, whilst stabilizing the lumbar region and the shoulder region
  • Great progression for learning the Snatch (Olympic Lift)
