How to Do Overhead Kettlebell Squat
The overhead kettlebell squat should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.
If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the overhead kettlebell squat.
Beginning Overhead Kettlebell Squat
A barbell is required for an overhead squat. You may or may not require plate weights to offer extra resistance to the exercise, depending on your strength, mobility, and comfort level with the action.
Overhead Kettlebell Squat Movement
1. With your legs shoulder-width apart, hold a kettlebell in your hand and stretch your arm directly above your head.
2. While maintaining the kettlebell extended, bend your knees and drop yourself into a squat.
3. Balance with your other arm, then return to the starting position and repeat.
