The muscles used in the overhead squats

In the overhead squat exercise compared to the classic squat, we lift the medicine ball, swiss ball, dumbbell, barbell or cable above our head. It is much more challenging since it is a more complicated exercise than the classic squat, and the shoulders are under high stress during this exercise. This exercise helps you in increasing body balance and coordination. Before starting this exercise, you should learn the correct technique of the classic squat deeply.
