Tutorial: MB Squat Overhead Press


The MB Squat Overhead Press is a challenging whole body movement. Due to the sequential use of upper and lower body, it will also raise your heart rate very quickly.


  • Hold a large MB at chest height and perform a squat.
  • As you return to standing, press the ball overhead, so that your legs and arms straighten simultaneously.
  • When using a heavier MB, use the leg thrust to drive the MB upwards.


Any whole-body strength movement like this, that shunts blood from lower to upper body will produce a significant cardio effect. Therefore, the MB squat overhead press is one of many exercises that can be performed when time is limited, or as part of a high intensity interval circuit. The use of a large MB will also challenge your grip.
