Screening movement dysfunctions using the overhead squat


Chris Bishop with Mike Edwards & Anthony Turner

The aim of this article is to provide a rationale for using the overhead squat as a key method for screening movement quality. The authors will identify key flaws in interpreting movement quality during this pattern without guidance of ‘what to look for’. Consequently, the authors have suggested the use of a simple grading system (guided by existing recommendations), thus allowing coaches to monitor overhead squat performance more accurately.
