    overhead squat

    I read about overhead squats being fantastic for functional strength

    basically holding the bar over your head while you squat

    This has to be the most difficult exercise ever, think i need to learn the movement without weights first just feels so wrong, anyone else tried it?

    Yeah...it is a good exericse for your entire posterior chain. Although, don't think that you'll be able to squat near your 'normal' weight.

    Also, from a personal experience, I found that my flexibility was lacking on these so that's something that you'll need to work on over time...otherwise, these things kick serious ass! I started with just the bar at first to get comfortable.
