Front squats, push presses, thrusters, and wallballs can all be a headache. Both figuratively and literally, these movements done incorrectly will lead to wasted energy and ultimately tissue breakdown and severe headaches.
Why does this happen? Most of the time it is due to a loss in thoracic extension and stable shoulder mechanics in the front rack portion of the movement. This is true in maintaining the front rack position through hip extension (avoiding a premature press) as well as maintaining it to the bottom of the squat phase.
