Tuesday, March 22

We are starting with everyone’s favorite, overhead squats, today! The main reason this is a difficult movement for a lot of people is because of the mobility it requires. There are a lot of things that could be the problem – hips, ankles, shoulders, etc… – and figuring out your underlying issue is key to getting better at the overhead squat.

Here is a good hip opening stretch to try before you overhead squat today. Try it out and see if you notice a difference. If you do, your hips may be the issue. If not, let’s move on to something else. If you aren’t sure where to start, please ask a coach!
