MOVEMENT TIP: The Single Dumbell Overhead Squat

CrossFit Seminar Staff member James Hobart demonstrates the Single-Dumbbell Overhead Squat., which is a great core exercise. Using just one arm forces the athlete to resist against the tendency of the body to rotate to one side to compensate. Instead, switch your core on and work to keep the hips squared to the front in this movement.

Ensuring a strong Overhead Squat position will result in a stronger Dumbell Snatch, which we will look at next week.[/vc_column_text][us_separator type=”invisible”][vc_column_text]
