The overhead squat: why it’s an important lift to master.
I didn’t realize that one simple lift could cover so many basic movement types. Alan Couzens outlines the reasons behind the importance of the overhead squat as well as the critical reasons for perfecting the correct form while doing it. He also tells how to fix many of the problematic areas. Overall, it’s a good breakdown of the fundamentals of the lift as well as the benefits to doing it. It appears that this is the first critical movement (or exercise) that he has listed in a series of 5. Here’s the link to the article. Make sure to check back onto his page for the other 4 movements. Hopefully he’ll get those up soon.
