Please take a look at my overhead squat

So I started working on my overhead squat today. I just started CF two weeks ago at a Gold's Gym. There is no coach, so I'm slowly learning the new lifts as I go.

Thanks ahead of time

Those are really nice. Great work, nice and upright, torso angle doesn't change. Really good.

Looks solid, but I would try and straighten out your feet, they're pointed excessively out to the sides.

I will do that. Is it OK to have a wider stance though when doing these? I've found that I need a wider stance when my feet are straighter to get the same range of motion.

You can have a wider stance, so long as your not straining the inner thighs to get into the bottom position. I have a wider foot stance for mine, but it works!!

Re: Please take a look at my overhead squat

it easier flexibility wise to have a bigger angle with your feet more out.., but you sacrifice more torque the bigger the angle too..idk if this makes since yet but I cant put it any other way

Looking good. Nice upright posture and good thoracic mobility. Only nit I'd pick is you've got a slight butt wink at the bottom. Fight that by driving knees out harder and using those abdominals and erectors to hold the spine tight.
