How to: Single-Arm Overhead Squat
Primary Muscles Used:Upper Legs, Glutes, Gluteals, Quads, Hamstrings
- Holding a dumbbell with an overhand grip (palm facing towards your body), plant both feet on the floor slightly further than shoulder-width apart. Bring the dumbbell directly over your head — your arm should be in line with your ear and your palm facing forwards. Place your other hand on your hip. This is your starting position.
- Inhale and brace your core. Bend at both the hips and knees, until your upper legs are parallel with the floor. Ensure you keep a proud chest, keep your knees in line with your toes and your weight through your heels. Exhale and push through your heels and extend your legs to return to the starting position. You should feel the weight going through your glutes and quads. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions or time on each side.
