I have incorporated the overhead squat into my latest workout program, and am seeking opinions on a question I have.
My primary goal for using this total-body exercise is to improve overall flexibility (as Dan John suggests, this exercise is a cure-all for many ails).
As expected from my readings on the OH squat, I find I can use lightweights only if my heels are flat on floor, or progressively heavier weights if I elevate my heels.
My question is: which is best for achievement of my flexibility goal:
- Lightweight, heels flat on floor;
- Lightweight, heels elevated a little;
- Heavyweight, heels elevated a little more?
- All of the above…
