WODdoc Episode 372 P365: Wobble Squat

Common assumption is we need to get stronger to lift more weight.  I disagree… sure absolute strength plays an intricate roll and will be the ultimate limiting factor of all lifting capability but strength  means nothing without the ability to control it..


The more simplistic the movement the more it is governed by brute strength (deadlift). The more complex the more it is governed by stability (overhead squat). Today’s exercise is designed to tax the  smaller stabilizing muscles of the shoulder. The goal is to perform full squats causing as little KB movement as possible. This is best done with slow deliberate movements. Do not do this with heavy kettlebells as we are trying to limit the amount large muscle recruitment.
