Addressing movement patterns by using the overhead squat

Premium

Chris Bishop with Alex Villiere and Anthony Turner

Movement screening is a concept that has been widely adopted by the strength and conditioning (S&C) community. Addressing poor movement patterns can have implications on programme design and, if done appropriately, will positively contribute to an athlete’s overall physical development. The squat is one of the most utilised movement patterns in the development of lower body strength, with multiple variations (back/front/overhead) being used to target specific strength development. However, compromised form during any of these variations may lead to altered joint kinematics, thus reducing the optimal path of movement efficiency.
