Workout of the day
Todays workout is a heavy day.
The overhead squat is more demanding on position than overall strength. The mid-line stability, balance, and coordination involved in doing a sound squat with load overhead is close to unmatched by any other skill. Newer athletes should practice with a light load by keeping the bar over the center of the foot and shoulders actively pressing up through the bar and into the ceiling. Intermediate athletes will benefit from going heavy, possibly even holding the same load for a few sets before jumping up in load.

Using a broom stick or other object overhead is a great way to practice this exercise at home. Doing a controlled set every few minutes on a timer help pace this out.
