Quality criteria for this movement:

Quality criteria are a series of boxes that must be ticked to ensure good quality, safe, efficient and effective movement. These criteria don’t cover the start, mid and end points of a repetition, but the quality of what happens between these points. For optimal movement patterns, only repetitions that meet these criteria should be counted.

  • Vertical shins during the backswing.
  • Vertical KB overhead.
  • No excessive knee bend.
  • Straight arms overhead.
  • Ribs locked down when overhead.
