In an evolutionary context, it's all a fad.

The 15 ohs at bodyweight comes from a Dan John article. 15 reps in bodyweight overhead squat is an interesting benchmark, like 20 pullups, various feats of gymanastical exhuberance (what the hell is a planche anyway?), and a sub 5 minute mile. it's certainly a reasonable goal for a person. An accomplished lifter, Peter Puetz who used to post here and posts regularly at P&B has parlayed success in the OHS to a number of other core lifts. Try it an see.
