Movement

Squat to Overhead Reach With Rotation Movement

1. Lower into a squat while equally distributing your weight across your feet and reaching for the pole overhead.

2. As you descend down, keep your heels down and don't compensate by allowing your toes to rotate out!

3. Maintain a straight overhead position with your arms. The line of your arms should ideally be parallel to the line of your spine; this is critical for optimum mobility of the shoulders and lat areas of the upper back.

4. Come up as you lower your arms back down, pausing slightly on the bottom to stabilize and control movement.

5. Reps should be 5-10.
