Barbell Overhead Squat
Start out by having a barbell in front of you on the ground. Your feet should be wider than shoulder width apart from each other. Bend the knees and use a pronated grip (palms facing you) to grab the barbell. Your hands should be wider than shoulder width apart from each other. Lift the barbell up until you can rest it on your chest. Move the barbell over and slightly behind your head and make sure your arms are fully extended. Keep your head up at all times and also maintain a straight back. Retract your shoulder blades.
Slowly lower the weight by bending your knees until your thighs are parallel to the ground.
Use your feet and legs to help bring the weight back up to the starting position. Repeat the exercise according to the training plan.
