Skill:

OverHead Squats
3-3-3-3-3
Zercher Squats
5-5-5-5-5

Ed Zercher, a strongman from the 1930s, created one of my personal favorite lifts, the Zercher squat.

The Zercher squat is simple to execute and its major benefit is the lack of compressional force on the spine due to the fact that the bar isn’t axially loaded. Combine this with the fact that the bar is still loaded on the front of the body, and it makes for a safe, deep squat — meaning tons of posterior chain activation.
