Narrow Grip Overhead Squats



Many people widen their grip on overhead squats in order to allow for more rotation at the shoulder to compensate for forward lean in the OHS. Ideally the torso would stay vertical and the hips, knees, and ankles would do most of the work. If we're lacking flexibility in any of those key areas, the torso moves to compensate. Our best shoulder position is stacked, with the elbows and wrists lined up over the shoulders. Today we're doing OHS with a plate, which will force a narrower grip. Play around with foot position and see if you can hit depth with this challenging position!
