Make sure you stay hydrated/fueled for today’s WOD! Excessive heat warnings are in effect!
- The left frame shows the bar correctly balanced in the athlete’s frontal plane/mid-foot.
- The center frame shows the bar too far behind the athlete’s frontal plane – acceptable, but definitely not efficient.
- The right frame shows the bar forward of the frontal plane, resulting in the athlete relying on the shoulders/upper back to support the load – not acceptable, the athlete will eventually miss the lift or lose safe squat positioning!
How could the athlete pictured below fix his positioning? What could he do to achieve better balance/posture?
Here’s another comparison shot of different Overhead Squat positions:
Which is better? The position on the left or right? Why?
