Overhead Squat - Exercise Guide

Step 1

Stand up straight while holding a barbell with both hands using a pronated (palms facing in) grip. Your back must be straight, head looking forward, and chest up.

Step 2

Bring the barbell overhead by extending your arms upward. Slightly bend your knees. This is your starting position.

Step 3

Proceed into a squatting position by bending your hips and knees at the same time. Keep your back neutral and arms extended overhead as you do this. Don’t let your body lean forward. Inhale as you descend.

Step 4

Pause for a moment then slowly go back to your starting position by extending your hips and knees at the same time. Exhale as you ascend.

Step 5

Repeat until the recommended amount of repetitions is achieved.
