Squatting: Part 3 – OHWS

The OverHead Wall Squat (OHWS) is a fundamental movement for all athletes. To perform even 1 rep requires optimal ankle, knee, hip, spine and shoulder mobility (in the sagittal plane). And just like the Wall Squat in Part 2, the exercise is easily modified for all. Incremental progressions can be made on a daily basis.

The exercise is the same as the Wall Squats in part 2, but your hands are above your head at shoulder width and elbows stay straight, this exercise will improve your squatting and your paddling.

Once you can do 10 of these move onto Part 4 – Surf Squats.
