Re: Question on Overhead Squat

I'm sure you've checked out the Overhead Squat videos in the Exercise section of the main site

http://www.crossfit.com/cf-info/excercise.html

Like Coach points out in one of them, the overhead squat will reveal all the problems in your squat mechanics.

One reason your arms might be coming forward is if you are performing the overhead squat like a back squat and leaning forward. The bar should always be over the center of your feet.

Try scaling the weight down and keeping the bar centered.

If you can, post a video and then we can see what's really going on.
