While the exercise list on the site is quite extensive, and I've managed to come up with some other GPP and odd exercises to add into the workouts, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for functional exercises that aren't on the site that could be added into workouts.

Thats a very broad question! What are your goals?

Functional is determined by what helps you achieve better results in your day to day life or sport and in a lot of cases whats functional for one person is not so functional for another.

We do something like that: Hurpees (Hooverball + Burpees) with the 20# D-ball. Good times.

I enjoy challenging advanced clients by combining different exercises together; for example 2 deadlifts + 1 bent over row = 1 rep, 2 overhead walking lunges + 1 shoulder press = 1 rep, 2 push ups + 1 burpee = 1 rep, 1 squat throw + 1 full contact twist etc.

These are a few I've come up with:

The Greene Burpee

1. Start standing
2. Squat down, place hands on the ground shoulder-width apart and kick legs back into the bottom of the pushup position in one smooth movement.
3. As you execute the pushup from the bottom to the top, kick legs forward and go into a kneeling position with your knees on the ground and your butt on your ankles.
4. Explode out of the kneeling position into the bottom of a squat. This movement in and of itself is called a Knee Jump. Bring your hands forward to help balance yourself.
5. Squat straight up keeping your head and eyes forward, your back neutral or slightly arched, and your weight mostly on your heels. If you wish, explode up into a maximum height jump.
6. Repeat

Fun complexes:
barbell - 3 close grip power snatches to 3 close grip overhead squats to 6 behind the neck thrusters

dumbbell - turkish get up to squat clean thruster to one arm snatch, then switch arms

dumbell - lie down holding two dumbbells on your shoulders, kick up into the bottom of a squat, then perform a thruster, then a two db swing, then back down

Don't think the animal crawls are listed:

Bear crawl
Crab walk
Alligator crawl
Partner wheel barrels
Partner leap frogs

you know, elementary school PE stuff.

Heavy bag thrusters

start with the heavy bag on one shoulder, squat, thrust the bag up and over the head to rest on the other shoulder.
