The Overhead position is significantly easier to maintain at depth when in a split position, than in a parallel “squat” position.Â Today’s WOD involves squat stance.Â Widen the position of your feet to make it easier to attain depth, and fight to bring your shoulders back.Â Flexibility in the hip, pelvis and lumbar spine, as well as flexibility in the shoulder girdle are NECESSARY to achieve depth in this movement.
Improve the former through “Squat Therapy” (ask your coach to show you), and the latter can be improved through close grip bar hangs, or muscle ups with your toes on a box behind your body.
