Overall an excellent day of overheard squatting on Monday! For those of you relatively new to the movement AND those who report difficulties with the lift- it is advised that you NOT ignore the overhead squat until it comes up again for a training day- but to do just the opposite: Embrace it by practicing it more often.
We comment on this frequently- that working on weaknesses is a surefire way to increase strength and conditioning across the board, rather than focusing more on current strengths. If there is a weakest link, it will be figured out- in the same way water finds low ground. Take the overhead squat under your wing and nature it. How: by spending some reps EVERY DAY with the lift in some aspect of your warm up. PVC pipe in hand for some pass throughs- overheads squat for some reps, moving through a basic barbell warm up with an empty bar- after those presses, get in some push presses behind the neck and then a set of overhead squats. Move towards something you need to improve upon- not away from it. Carry on.
