We have a new phrase to use to qualify better movement from worse. We want the "Best Fit" position. When referring to the overhead squat that means open shoulders, armpits out, elbows to the ground. Too often we see athletes compromise the "Best Fit" position. Rolling the shoulders forward, armpits facing the ground, elbow facing forward. Examine the photos above. Are these athletes in the "Best Fit" position?
