The purpose of the article is to justify the use of the Overhead Squat test to identify and eliminate dysfunctions in mature people involved in fitness. Testing the movement of the human body is one of the most discussed topics in fitness and sports medicine over the past years. Movement is the basis of human growth and development, and is also a center of activity throughout life. At the same time, movement is a complex biomechanical and physiological process, which carries certain risks associated with everyday life. Today, there is an acute question of increasing the overall level of effectiveness of training, physical fitness, rehabilitation and reducing the risk of injury in people who lead an active lifestyle. There are many ways to assess the quality of a person’s body movement, ranging from a functional assessment of Gray Cook movement (FMS) to functional tests for athletes. But the most common test that underlies many tests is overhead squat. There is a theory that this test has an advantage over others, since it takes less time and does not require additional equipment, which is very convenient for sports school trainers or physical education teachers. The study showed that the “squat with arms above the head” test is an effective way to identify and eliminate dysfunctions in the movement of the human body. Practical recommendations developed by the authors to eliminate dysfunctions will allow trainers and fitness instructors to achieve elimination of asymmetries in movements and avoid injuries in a shorter time.
