The overhead squat has the potential to humble even the strongest athletes because it requires not only strength, but also coordination, balance, mobility, and core stability (among other things). Luckily, a lot of those things can be trained not only by doing overhead squats, but also by doing some homework. Hit up some wall squats, stretch out your calves, open up your hips a little and suddenly you've improved your overhead squat significantly!
Here's a video of one of my old coaches from CFLA overhead squatting 110 pounds for 2 reps back in 2007. While her form isn't perfect, she keeps her chest up, her arms straight, and her butt back. I'd like everyone who does this workout to consciously challenge themselves to improve their overhead squat. You have plenty of tools to use to work on yourself, the hard part is actually making it happen.
