One Arm Dumbbell Overhead Squat Problem

Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone! I've tried one arm dumbbell overhead squat today. For some reason I feel pain (not the good post-training one) in my shoulders and lower back while doing this exercize. Not it's lessened but it's still here. I'm afraid of injury if I keep doing it. I don't have lower back pain while doing a barbell squat or shoulder pain while doing barbell overhead press. What can it be caused by? Is it a lack of mobility? Aren't my shoulders strong enough?

I also can't keep the arm I hold the dumbbell in straight while squatting.


P.S. Sorry if my English is incorrect.

This will sound snarky, but the problem is that you are doing one arm dumbell overhead squats. These are going to put you in odd positions as far as your whole spinal chain not being a vertical column like that are in the bilateral exercises you mentioned. These are goign to be hard to keep safe position in to prevent injury, and I don't even know where to start as far as giving the proper advice to do so.
