Overhead Squat

The overhead squat is fairly simple to learn. Start by standing in front of a barbel that’s the right weight for you with your feet more than shoulder-width apart. Bend your knees, and with your palms facing up, lift the barbell until you can rest it on your chest. Then lift it over and slightly behind your head, ensuring that your back is straight. This is the starting position. After holding the barbell in place for a few seconds, slowly lower it by bending your knees until your thighs are parallel to the ground while inhaling. Again, make sure your back is straight to avoid injury. Now, lift the barbell back up to the strarting position while exhaling. And that’s it! Repeat for your recommended amount of repititions.
