I like using dumbbells for overhead squats. Puts more strain on your abs and quads.

I like to work in a compound movement with it as well.

I will squat down with the db's at my sides, curl up into shoulder press position, press up, and stand back up out of the squat while holding the dumbbells over my head. Can't do that with a bar!

Actually you can.

What you can't do that with is any sizeable weight.

ANd now i've just read how bad a smith machine is to squat with, fuck sakes.
If thats my only option for a squat though just go feet further forward and a bit wider?
