Hey Coach,

I've been doing Crossfit/Oly lifting for about half a year now, but I've never had any extended coaching on the oly lifts. I watch all your videos, but I'd just like for you to clarify an issue I've been having.

My question for you is when I overhead squat, how much, if any, should my chest move forward as I go down into my squat? Is it alright if my chest moves forward an inch? Or should I be able to drop a plum line from the bar, through my chest, and down to my feet?


you want the bar overhead in the sqt position with the bar over the base of support (the feet)....usually from mid foot to the heel. the torso you want to be as vertical as it can be depending on your soma typing.
