Mobility Monday: Is It Your Shoulders?

The overhead squat isn't something the average person busts out on a daily basis but it is one of the best tests to figure out if you have full body mobility.  In the weight room we see many people who aren't able to get into the position due to restrictions in either their shoulders, their hips or a healthy combination of both.  In this video Kelly Starrett talks about how to differentiate between if it is a shoulder issue or if there is a bigger problem occurring at your hips.

You may never perform a snatch of need to get down into an overhead squat but if you can continue to work on your mobility and get into these positions your levels of stiffness, tightness, and pain should decrease substantially.
