I’ve been doing some work on various overhead squats lately. That includes kettlebell overhead squats.
With just a single kettlebell, it takes a bit less flexibility, as you can slightly lean to one side and back. Still I’m quite pleased with this recent PR, doing a few reps on both sides with the 48kg or 106lb. kettlebell.
Double kettlebell overhead squats are tougher to do. The flexibility, mobility, stability and strength all all heavily demanded in this one move. For this I’m still working on getting the double 32kg’s going.
Barbells, dumbbells, sandbags and other tools can all be used, to slightly different effects, for overhead squats.
I highly recommend this exercise.
