Overhead squat

3. Overhead squat
A BOXER cannot and should not perform the crucial Olympic lifts until they have a good range of motion, particularly in their calves, ankles, hips and shoulders, and the overhead squat is the best way of testing for this. When a boxer can perform the overhead squat with the bar overhead, their head raised, their spine neutral, and in a squat position with their tail bone close to the floor, they can then progress to the Olympic lifts. This is where the real gains are made.
