You can’t say too many positive things about the Overhead Squat – it’s a full body, full range-of-motion, demanding yet safe exercise, that is easily modified by simply holding your hands overhead, a PVC pipe, a pole or, as in this video shows, a dumbbell in one hand. As you get stronger, you can hold any type of weight: two-handed bar or dumbell – it’s all good!
- Hold a dumbbell with one arm at full extension.
- Use your other arm to counterbalance yourself.
- Perform a squat.
