Got tight ankles? Sara, Jenn, Eddie, Amy, Ben, Tyler, J Finger, Evan, Chris, Jack, Dylan, and anyone else I’m forgetting.


Overhead squat flexibility

Take your rest day to do some light recovery cardio followed by some time devoted to your flexibility issues. If you don’t know what yours are, don’t hesitate to ask.
Overhead squat suck? Could be due to any one of a number of different mobility problems, from the shoulders to the thoracic spine to the ankles. Let’s start at the top and work our way down.
Be sure to test your overhead squat with a PVC pipe (if you’re not sure how bad it is, video yourself) before and after your mobility work.
