    I have been advised that the overhead squat is a good variation along with the front squat to improve my squating technique as it as it helps improve my posture during the squat.

    Is the overhead squat a variation that is useful to use.
    What is the best way to use this exercise in your programs, ie. is it more to just improve your posture rather than a specific strength or power exercise.

    In my opinion it is more a mobility exercise, and not something that you can load to a decent level

    Have loaded it to 100kg myself in the past so it is a lot more than just mobility exercise, cheers,ash

    It is a fantastic movement for thoracic mobilisation and a great core movement as everything is challenged to maintain posture, I use it as a down week movement as you can use around 40 – 60 per cent of what you can back squat, also a great technique movement for the receiving position for the snatch as well, hasten very slowly, empty bar or wooden stick is your starting point, ash
