Yoga Poses Overhead Squats

Is bad mobility coming in between your overhead squats? Well, there are many people who find these squats really difficult not because of lack of strength, but because they lack mobility. Here are some of the poses to help you get the overhead squats right every time you do it.

  • Frog squat Keep your feet shoulder width apart, bend down to touch the ground with the fingertips. Now, slowly bend the legs to bring hips down and head up. Sit in this wide squat position and try to push your knees back with the elbows. This is a great yoga pose to improve hip mobility.
  • The goddess pose This is another interesting and useful hip mobility pose you can try. To do this, stand with your feet slightly wider than the shoulders.  Put your arms in the side like the cactus pose. Now, bend the knee to bring the hip down, but stopping at around 90 degrees.  Then, try to move back and forth in this position, thereby moving your weight from right to your left and back. Make sure to have your torso still and not wiggling it.
  • Relaxed downward dog This is one of the best poses for shoulder movements.  To do this, get into the downward dog pose, while bending the knees slightly.  Also, make the heels rise off the ground. Now, you need to focus on pushing back the hands as well as drawing the shoulder blades together and down the back.  This pose is relatively easier than the traditional dog pose and allows you to focus on the upper body, especially shoulders and upper body portions.
  • The dolphin pose The Dolphin pose is another example of shoulder mobility. Here, you need to begin with downward dog pose and modify it slightly by keeping feet wide apart. Walk the hands and take it further to come down on forearms. You can bend your knees if you don’t have any hamstring flexibility.

These are some of the common and extremely useful overhead yoga poses for one and all. For better overhead flexibility you can try it all.
