I’ve been sitting with this since I saw it this morning. The more I learn the more the one size fits all idea is flawed. There is no perfect diet for everyone, only perfect diets for individuals. Every body has different needs and different capacities. Is the overhead squat really “Functional”? It is a perfect test for strength, mobility, and flexibility. But, in my opinion, it is not a functional movement and it should be programmed for a lot of people, especially in high reps. That’s where the assessment comes in. Does this person have a fully functioning shoulder, yes or no? Do they have a fully functioning hip, yes or no? Do they have a fully functioning ankle, yes or no? How about the foot? Does an athlete need all of these to do an overhead squat? 100%. If they don’t have all of these joints working independently, then they absolutely shouldn’t be using them interdependently in this movement. Then we go down the the rabbit hole, if they can’t do one overhead squat properly, then shouldn’t be doing them under load, with high volume, and under fatigue. So, if they shouldn’t be overhead squatting then they shouldn’t be snatching. If they continue to do these functional movements while they aren’t functional then they are loading dysfunction and it will take them a lot longer to be “functional”. Like I said, just my opinion. Rant over. Enjoy your day!
