What is the weak link in my OHS?
It might be your lack of dancer ankles. I know, I know big strong men don’t have dancer ankles. Let me define my term “dancer ankles.” Strong and flexible ankles that can support and balance weight in a flexible position. Now that we got that out of the way.
Ankles are the first joint in a complex movement like the Overhead Squat. If your ankle mobility won’t let you bring your hips forward as your hip go down into the bottom of the squat, then you will not be in the most efficient position. Don’t forget knees out to help achieve this, but at the bottom of a deep Olympic squat your hips almost sit on your feet, they are slightly back but this take flexible and strong ankles. This position is a strong position with hips under shoulders.
If your heel come off the ground at the bottom you might need ankle/calf mobility, but if your feet turn out and knees go in you might need some hip mobility.
