This Overhead Squat Video Has A Quarter-Million Views


I like to say "I am not a form nazi", but come on! If you are putting out instructional videos, be able to demonstrate correct form. A free YouTube video, like the one above, is one thing, but if you're charging a chunk of change for a DVD, do it right, take 2 and get your form down before shooting, or get someone else (one of your bazillion clients) to do it for you. [/rant]

If you can look past the cleavage and bad (good?) camera angles, you'll notice
the rounding lumbar, the heels coming off the ground, and dumbbell forward
of the body's center of gravity.

I'm pretty sure the majority of those views are young men who do not overhead squat.

:) agree. BodyRocks is VERY popular due to main actress. Always in tight clothes, nice breast and everything, good dose of body poses and certain body parts. She certainly knows how to market herself :)

Oh, I know. This criticism is actually directed at other actual coaches (some of whom make DVDs...). This girl's "earned" her quarter of a million views, I guess. ;)

I got another view from me, but I can tell you I didn't give a damn about her rounded lumbar.

Well, she used to work as a porn actress. The Internet is full of her old videos.

I overhead squat with good form, but I have definitely watched these videos.
