Overhead Squats

Preparation

Insert the handle bar. Fix the slide so that the handle bar is just below the collarbone.

Starting position

Stand with your back against the handle bar and lift it slightly with your shoulders. Grasp the handle bar far out with both hands. Then stretch the arms. The focus is on the future. The body's center of gravity rests on the entire sole of the foot.

Execution

With arms extended, get into squatting position so that hip joint is lower than knee joint. Stand up with pressure until the legs are almost stretched. Whole back always in "bow tension", the abdomen is also tightened. During the downward movement, the buttocks are guided as far back as possible.

Hint

Do not let the knees buckle toward the middle. They always remain above the feet. The legs are not fully extended in the final position to keep the muscles under tension and to protect the knee joint.

Variants

Warning

The squat is a technically demanding exercise. We recommend learning these with light resistance.
