Here is what Coach Glassman had to say in a Crossfit Journal Article about the overhead squat:

The overhead squat is the ultimate core exercise, the heart of the snatch, and peerless in developing effective athletic movement. This functional gem trains for efficient transfer of energy from large to small body parts – the essence of sport movement. For this reason it is an indispensable tool for developing speed and power. The overhead squat also demands and develops functional flexibility, and similarly develops the squat by amplifying and cruelly punishing faults in squat posture, movement, and stability.

The overhead squat is to midline control, stability, and balance what the clean and snatch are to power – unsurpassed.

  1. Shout out to Marie for her awesome coaching/encouragement/support on the OHS part of the wod today – new PR of 68 lbs. May not seem like much to some of you, but the last time I wrote down a PR for OHS it was 33 lbs, so I DOUBLED the weight and had good form!! Yippee :o)

    1. Thanks GIrl!!! I must say we have some strong women at CFTC!! Julie wasn’t the only one who got a PR tonight. Kelly Crabtree put up 103, Shay put up 123, Jana Heywood put up 138, Mindi Dixon put up 113. Those were the ones I could remember, if I didn’t mention you and you got a PR I’m sorry.

      So awesome to see everyone pushing themselves tonight!! I loved every minute of it!!
