Can you overhead squat? Simple question, but some more points for discussion as well:
-do you have experience training Olympic lifts?
-can you do more than the barbell?
-can you do it without a raised heel?
-do you normally high bar or low bar squat? Both? How about fronts?
I started awhile back putting a lot more emphasis on mobility and in effect, technique, which I feel has helped me enormously. Even so I still can't really overhead squat!
This being a powerlifting forum, the first important question is "does This benefit my squat numbers?" As someone who exclusively squats high bar, I get the feeling that they can be beneficial for me. At the very least, even without emphasizing OH squats too much, possessing the mobility to do light overhead squats will probably have carry over.
What do you guys think? Is there anyone here who has experience using overhead squats or that benefitted from them?
